Textured Ornaments

Hello everyone, I have two cards to share with you today, using the current stamps of the month from Chocolate Baroque.

I have used the Palm Fan Baroque Ornament stamp to create my first card, creating a wrinkle free distress background using a palette of blues and greens. I added a stencil over the top of the background.

I used silver Soft Form Relief Paste to create a textured focal element for my card. I spread the paste over the stamp, and left it to dry overnight. Once the paste was dry, I peeled the film away from the stamp, and trimmed away the rough edges. I added some green and turquoise paint using a baby wipe, taking care not to over wet the film, or it starts to break down. Once the film was dry again, I attached it to the centre of the main stencilled area, and added a large flat-backed gem.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Words stamp set, which I stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I adhered the background to a large black card blank to finish.

For my second card, I created a wrinkle free distress background as before, using a colour combination of blues and purples, and used the Tangled Baroque Ornament stamp as my focal point.

I created a focal image using Gold Soft Form Relief Paste, in exactly the same way as before, this time using purple and blue paint to colour the film. I added some plum ribbon, and used Plum Archival ink to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Words of Gratitude stamp set.

Sadly, the Soft Form Relief Paste is not available on the website at the moment, but hopefully, it will be back in stock at some point. You could use alcohol inks to colour some card, and then once it is dry, emboss your image using gold embossing powder, as an alternative. Thanks for stopping by, xx

How interesting to see the contrast between the silver & gold pastes, I have to say I particularly like the silver & your first design. The lovely corner decorations using the stencil & graduating inwards using blue then green is particularly effective & I love the sense of the yellow plus blue of the wrinkle free distress background creating the third colour - green. The black card base is a very effective foil for the whole design.
