Hello everyone, it's time for another weekly post on the Chocolate Baroque challenge blog, and this week, I am providing a little bit of the colour inspiration to try to get your crafty mojo working. I have chosen to make a tag which I created by mopping up some of the left over ink from my card that I created in Monday's post. As you will be able to see, the colours are very similar!
I stamped a flowerhead twice onto some Crafty Individuals paper twice, using Memento Sweet Plum Ink, and cut these out. I added some coloured detail with pencils. Using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, I stamped some leaves from the Sketchy Doodle Landscape stamp set onto green scrapbook paper, and also directly onto the tag itself. I then cut the leaves from the scrapbook paper, leaving the stems behind, and decoupaged the leaves onto the tag.
I edged the tag with Seedles Preserves Distress Ink, and the stamped the sketchy flower onto the background using Wild Honey Distress Ink, and Sweet Plum Memento Ink, for a layered look. I added the flowerhead, which I had stiffened with some card. Finally, I added two circles of tiny seed beads into the centre of the flower using a 'dries clear' glue.
There is something new over on the Design Team Blog today, so head over there as well if you have the time. Thanks for stopping by, xx
