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.
