Flowers in Her Hair

Hello everyone, I have a colourful card to share with you today, featuring the Summer Fayre stamp that was part of the recent Chocolate Baroque TV shows on Hochanda.

I have stamped the image onto a square topper, and then masked the image. I coloured the background with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink, and then loosely coloured the image with Zig Clean Colour markers, sometimes using a water brush to dilute the colours.

I created a larger background using matching colours of  Distress Oxide Ink, (Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber), and spritzed the background with water, to blend the colours a little. Once the background was dry, I stamped an image from the Poppy Edges stamp set, to frame the central image, using Barn Door Distress Ink. I added a large red bow before I assembled the card, choosing a toning olive green card to finish.

I hope you like her pink hair and green eyeshadow. She reminds me of a festival goer, with her bright accessories!

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Spring Things!

Hello everyone, I have a couple of projects to share with you today, featuring the newest batch of stencils from Chocolate Baroque.

For my first project, I used a piece of background watercolour paper from my stash, already coloured with green Distress Inks, and added some stencilling, using the Useful Leaves Stencil and two different colours of green ink. I coloured some texture paste with Twisted Citron Distress re-inker, and spread it through the Seasonal Journey Stencil, choosing the word 'Spring'. Once the paste was dry, I added some green gilding wax to darken the colour slightly, and add some shimmer.

I stamped two butterflies from the Just Butterflies stamp set onto acetate using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I coloured the reverse of the images with Copic markers, and cut the images out, before attaching them to the background. I chose a bright green card to mat the background.

For my second card, I stamped the Spring Awakening image onto a piece of smooth watercolour paper, and masked the image. I coloured the background with Scattered Straw Distress Ink, and added some stencilling with a honeycomb stencil in two opposite corners. I used Wild Honey Distress Ink to add the stencilling.

I drew through the twig section of the Seasonal Elements Stencil, using a Distress Marker, and then added some leaves, using a bright green Zig Clean Colour marker. I used the same green to add the word Spring from the Seasonal Journey Stencil. I added some detail to the leaves with a darker green pencil.

I stamped a bee and butterfly from the Patchwotk Butterfly and The Rose Tree stamp sets onto acetate, embossing and colouring them exactly as I did in my first card. I removed the mask, and coloured the main image with Polychromos pencils. I added some deeper shading around the edge of the card, using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, and matted the background onto some purple card.

Thanks for stopping by, xx
