Hearts and Flowers

Hello everyone, it's time for another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog, and this week there is a free digital download for you to collect. It's a beautiful download, just great for those floral cards that you might like to make, but if you pop over to the challenge blog, you will see that Florence has made something very different!

I have chosen to make a romantic card that could be used as an Anniversary or Wedding card. I have combined the download with kraft card and cream lace for an alternative colour scheme. I stamped the Poppy Baroque Heart onto a spare piece of kraft card using Versamark and vanilla white embossing powder. I stamped the image again onto a piece of pale scrapbook paper. I coloured the second image using watercolour pencils, toning in with the digital download, before blending the colours with a waterbrush. I cut both images out and layered them up.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Sweet Nothings stamp set onto the download background, and then stuck this to a kraft card blank. I added a piece of cream lace, and then adhered the heart using 3D foam pads.

Hop over to the blog to see Florence's inspiration, join in the current challenge yourself, and find out how to win a £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque. Thanks for stopping by, xx

I keep looking at this & seeing so many hues in the free download paper which you've echoed superbly in your colouring of the stamped image - I especially love the way you've brought out the reddish mauve tones of the download with your leaves & stems of the flower. The cream card base with the cream lace are echoed with the blooms of the flower & I particularly like the contrast given by your use of white, made all the more prominent by the image being stamped onto kraft. I really delightful & unusual wedding or anniversary card.
