Berries and Birds

Hello everyone, it's time for another weekly posting on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog, the first post of 2016. This week sees the monthly free download, designed as always by our lovely boss Lesley Wharton. I have created a card using the download, as part of the Design Team inspiration.

The download paper is a beautiful, vibrant design, entitled 'Chinese Goosberries', and it is very versatile, suitable for lovely Autumn, or even Christmas projects, but can be used for any occasion really. I have chosen to add a lovely stamp from the Woodland Dreams stamp set, I love the berries on this one. I stamped the image onto a piece of pretty pink scrapbook paper, that I have hoarded in my stash for ages. I have decided to use my supplies up this year, rather than hanging on to them. I used Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and clear embossing powder for a really vibrant image. I coloured the image with pencils, and then edged the panel with Barn Door Distress Ink. I stamped a sentiment from the Amazing Birthday stamp set onto another piece of the scrapbook paper, edging it with Distress Ink as before.

I matted all of the panels with black card, before attaching everything to a large card blank.

Pop over to the Challenge Blog to pick up the free download for yourself, and see Anne's fabulous card too. You can also read about how you can enter the challenge and win a £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque, we would love to see your entries.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

A really terrific effect with your stamping on the scrapbook paper which tones in beautifully with the download paper. Your colouring of the sunset/sunrise behind the trees makes the whole design glow & I love the way the black provides a perfect foil for the reds & yellows. Those berries combine beautifully with the download motifs too.

Hi Judith, what a gorgeous card, I love the stamps and the paper, such rich colours too.
Thanks for your comment yesterday, yes this intolerance is so common, but so much made sense for me in terms of how awful I was feeling and the symptoms. your yeast intolerance sounds really awful, migrains are do debilitating. It's cassien and whey that is my problem not the lactose, all very eye opening. Kate x
