Chocolate Baroque card 2
Welcome to my blog.
Today I have another card as a guest designer for Chocolate Baroque.
I have used two of the same stamps from my previous sample as well as the beautiful Song Thrush panel. I like this panel as you can use various parts of it as well as the whole stamp.
Stamps used: The border from Harlequin Rose, words from Summer Poppies, Garden Lace Scene and the Song Thrush panel.
VersaMark embossing pad
Versafine Onyx black inkpad
Silver embossing powder
Distress ink - Peacock Feathers
I stamped and silver embossed the panel onto black card and coloured with mica powders. Then the whole scene was glazed with Glossy Accents. Although this takes a while to do the whole panel, it is a technique I really like on black, as it gives a very dramatic effect and looks as though it has been enamelled.The border was stamped and silver embossed onto white card and then coloured with the Distress ink.
I then discovered, by accident, that the panel sat nicely into the border of the Garden Lace Scene , so I decided to use that as part of the background too. I stamped the Garden Lace Scene so that it was balanced with the border and then trimmed the card up. The panel then sat evenly balanced along the border. The words are from the Summer Poppies set and stamped with the black Versafine.
Hope you have enjoyed your visit and see you next week for my last sample.
