Background to Chocolate Baroque card

Hello again to anyone reading this.

Thank you to everyone who left a comment about my last cards I posted. It really cheered me up to read them.

After the last post that I submitted to Chocolate Baroque's challenge, Janice asked how I had done the background colours. I'm sorry that I have taken so long to get around to answering your query.

I started by stamping the top border with Seedless Grape Distress ink and quickly covering with clear embossing powder, then heat embossing.  I then stamped the bottom border and embossed.
 I then masked both sides of the edges before stamping and embossing one side, then the other.

Once the embossing had cooled, I used  Cut-n-dry foam and Crushed Olive Distress ink to ink over the white areas.

 Hope this helps Janice.

I thought I would show you another project I have done using Chocolate Baroque stamps.

This was an old box I've had lying around for ages.
I painted it a teal colour and when it was dry re-painted it black and scuffed the edges.
The metal was stamped with black Staz On and then worked to emboss it.
It was then painted over with acrylic  paint and rubbed back.
The side panels are silver embossed on black and then coloured with Perfect Pearl paints, to give the panels a shimmer.
The bold Chocolate Baroque designs are perfect for metal embossing.
 See you soon and happy crafting
Bye for now
