Chocolate Baroque challenge 24


Another Chocolate Baroque challenge with gorgeous colours.

What an amazing sky in the inspiration photo.

Current Challenge

Couldn't wait to do a card and just happened to need a birthday card for a friend.
So what better excuse to use  these beautiful colours.
Love the way the colours go together.

I have used the flower border from Floral Edges and randomly stamped the background. Then I stamped and embossed some extra borders and cut out sections to overlay .

The centre piece was stamped  with the Fantastic florals and then coloured with Distress inks.

I took some of the colour off the berries with a wet brush and when dry, painted with Distress ink.
These were then glazed with glossy accents. I stamped two extra butterflies to overlay and raise above the main design.

                          May have to do another one with these colours, really gorgeous.
                                                                 Thanks for visiting.
                                                                         Bye for now.

Chocoalte Baroque challenge 23


I've  been having fun this week doing another challenge with these gorgeous colours.

Current Challenge

It has, however, taken me ages, due to a lot of faffing about, to get the layout to my satisfaction.
Always the way with me!! Anyhow, this is the card I am submitting.

I have used the beautiful lady from the Mackintosh Beauty set again, the background on her dress is the Baroque Orchid stamp.
The card  background  is clear embossed on white, using the dress design of the Butterfly Dress stamp.  This is brilliant for backgrounds, when the bodice is masked off.

The card is made with a mixture of Distress inks, VersaMagic and Brilliance. Blueprint sketch, Peacock feathers, Aloe Vera and Brilliance Pearlescent purple.

                                                                    Happy crafting

Craft room plaque

Hello again.
This is just a quick post to show you a plaque that I decorated recently.

Artcuts have several different craft plaques that you can decorate to fit in with  your colour scheme and I think they would make a lovely gift for a crafting friend too.
I used some of the beautiful Chiyogami paper and coordinated the ink pads to stamp a design.

The plaques can also be personalized, like the one below.


You can also get one saying My Craft Space, for anyone who doesn't have a dedicated room.
I don't really have a room that is just my craft space, but it sounds grand!!

Wherever you are crafting, hope you are having an enjoyable time.
                                                                     Bye for now.
