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.
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.
