Chocolate Baroque Guest designer 1- May 2020

                                                                         Four fold cards

Hello everyone .

It is my turn again to show some samples as a guest designer. I always look forward to this and hope you like my three, very different projects. I have used stamps that were highlighted last year as it is very easy to put them away in your stash and forget about them.

I have started off with a lovely four fold design. I really like this folded card  as you can get an interesting finished project.

I decided to do a men's card, using the Eccentric Edwardian gentleman set, Steampunk Travel and Punky Expressions. Very good standbys for a  men's card.

Make a master sheet for the  background paper. Mine was made by just pressing Distress Inkpads onto the card , I usually use two colours, in this case Pumice and Wild Honey.

Spritz the background with water and leave to dry. The ink will bleed slightly and blend with each other.
The elements were stamped with Versafine black and one of the other colours.

The gentleman was stamped onto the card, but the very top of his head was masked so the hat would sit properly. The hat was on a separate piece of card and cut out.
Finally I used a piece of metal, stamped with Stazon and embossed it  to create an embellishment on the front.

Below are two other cards that I have done using this design. One was shown on Hochanda many months  ago but I thought it was worth another viewing for those of you who may not have seen it.
The other was a birthday card for a friend using blue as the background.

Love this colour combination.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.
