A piece of ZIA

There are some gorgeous new stamps over at Chocolate Baroque right now and I've been busy making samples with them for the Design Team blog However, here is a project that I made just for fun.

I drew a frame on a piece of watercolour paper, this is a piece of HOT pressed watercolour paper, and is very smooth. It is ideal for this type of work, as the pen flows very easily across the paper. I stamped the large flower onto the paper, and then made a mask using Eclipse paper, which I placed over the flower, once the ink was dry. I stamped the leaf image twice, and removed the mask. I stamped a couple of small dragonflies onto the background, and then filled the remaining area with the Tangle pattern Florz. I used a filler design inside the frame.

I stamped a couple more large flowers, and a butterfly image onto a spare piece of watercolour paper, and filled in some of the areas with tangle patterns. I then coloured the designs in with pencils, and cut them out before assembling the project.

I'll be showing you a few more designs using these lovely stamps over the coming days, so please  keep popping back.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Absolutely wonderful - this is just so so exciting. A perfect match of stamps & tangling. Now I know why I couldn't find a flower stamp that I liked for tangling with at a recent stamp show - CB was in the process of creating it.
Have a super weekend.
Much love
