Wooden Hanging

Hi Folks, I have a project to show you that is showcasing on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog today. The challenge is based around an inspirational photo and a colour swatch. My colours are a slightly muted version of those on the swatch, but nonetheless true to the originals.

I have covered three wooden hearts with some scrapbook paper, and added some yellow ink to the background. I used Dandelion Memento Ink. I sanded the edge of each heart. I stamped each heart using a harlequin stamp from the Harlequin Fragments stamp sheet, using Olive green Archival ink. I stamped the image quite faintly, as I only wanted a hint of the harlequin on the background, so I used second generation stamping.

I stamped a poppy image from the Poppy Meadow stamp set three times onto tissue paper, and coloured this with pencils, before adhering it to the hearts. I then stamped three butterflies from the Briar Rose Butterfly stamp set onto Clearly for Art. I cut these out, painted them green on the reverse, and heated them to mould the shape slightly. I stuck one to each heart. I then tied all of the hearts together with some green and turquoise ribbon.

There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge, and you could win a £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque. So head over to the blog to find out how to enter.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Lovely to see this wall art which is beautiful. Poppies are always popular and these are beautifully coloured.

I love the way you've used the challenge colours in muted form - your ribbon is a wonderful way of enhancing the colours. The harlequin second generation stamping is superbly effective adding a lovely touch of interest to each heart & I keep looking again & again at your coloured poppies - striking with the blue leaves.
