New Chocolate Baroque Stamps!

Over at Chocolate Baroque Glenda has launched two new sets of stamps, 'The Art of Chess', and 'Music Fanfare'.
These are both fabulous stamps sets, and very useful for birthday cards for both men and women. When I first looked at the chess set, I could see the potential for men's cards, but wanted to show just how versatile this stamp set could be. I set about making a much more feminine card, using a palette of yellow and gold.

I created a background using Ecoline ink and salt, which I dried, then stamped some images from the 'Royal Fleur de Lys' stamp set. I used a piece of yellow vellum, and embossed a pawn shape randomly, using gold embossing powder, and painted the images, using Ecoline ink again. I stamped the sentiment on a left over scrap of the background, and edged it with Distress Ink.

Finally, I stamped the image of a woman and coloured her with Polychromos, before mounting her onto an oval Nestie, as if she were a reflection in a mirror, adding a shrink plastic crown.


Hop over to the Design Team Blog to see Glenda's sample card using these fabulous stamps, and keep checking back over the next few days for samples from the Design Team members. I will be posting a couple more samples myself on my Blog, so do come back to see me here as well.

Thanks for popping by today, xx
