Colour Challenge 13 - Blog Anniversary Month

Hello, thanks for stopping by. Today is the start of Chocolate Baroques' 1st Anniversary month over on their Challenge Blog and here are the  fabulous colours for the new Challenge. Please pop over and say hello as you never know you may be the winner of a couple of planned give-aways throughout the month.

Here is my card with the new challenge colours and using the Honeysuckle Butterfly stamp set.

This is a very simple card with basic stamping that I  coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.
The main image was stamped onto a Spellbinders die cut and mounted onto a blank die cut that I coloured with Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Seedless Preserve was added to the edges of the main image and the base card along with Fossilized Amber which I also used to stamp the base card.

Thanks for looking xx

Birthday Wishes By The Beach

Hi, thanks for popping in. Today I have a card that I made for my friend's teenage daughter.

The background has been stamped with the Beach Huts from Little Claire and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils and the mesh design is part of the Rustic Fragments set from Chocolate Baroque.
I cut the sunglasses, waves, flipflops and sentiment on my Scan N Cut and added a few dabs of crystal Stickles for good measure.

Thanks for looking xx

Water-coloured Landscape

Hello, just thought I would share a card and let you know about some give-aways that will be coming up very soon, over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog

The stamps used for this card were the Landscape Collage   , Nature Swirls andMackintosh Sentiments
The main Landscape image has been coloured with water-colour crayons and then mounted onto brown card.
The base card was spritzed with yellow Dylusions ink spray. I then stamped the large flower image from Nature Swirls and embossed in clear, before adding more Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress ink. The clear embossed image comes through once you have given the card a quick clean with a cloth. I finished the card off by stamping a few more swirls using a brown Archival Ink followed by the sentiment from the Mackintosh clear stamp set.

This technique was inspired by one of my very talented team mates, Miranda. You can see her amazing card over on the Challenge Blog here.

Whilst you are over on the blog keep a look out for news of a couple of give-aways, as Chocolate Baroque are celebrating the Challenge Blog's first anniversary during July.
