Colour Challenge 22

Hello and thank you for popping in. Just a quick card to share as it's the start of a brand new month over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge blog. So why don't you have a look and join in, using these fab new colours.

Here is my little card created with the Honey Bee  set, which has been stamped with Versafine ink and water-coloured with brush markers.
I started by stamping the flower design in the middle of the card and then masked it off so that the honeycomb design could be stamped either side. I then stamped the rest of the bees and sentiments around the central design, before colouring. The card was finished off by matting onto coordinating card-stock and adding dabs of Crystal Stickles to the wings of all of the bees.

Thanks for looking and I would love it if you called back again soon.

Clean And Simple

Hello! I have a super quick, 15 minute, clean and simple card to show you today. It has been stamped with Punky Flowers and the sentiment is from Amazing Birthday.

I took some spare stamping card and sponged Distress inks through the honeycomb stencil, before over-stamping with the silhouette flower design. I then cut to size and matted onto black card-stock before sticking to the front of my DL card blank. I then inked up the sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine and stamped the Just For You at the bottom of the card and finished off with dabs of Crystal Stickles. 

There is going to be a twice monthly feature over on the Chocolate Baroque Blog, featuring 15 minute, clean and simple cards, so why don't you pop over and have a look.

Spring Time

Thanks for popping in. Today I have a card made with the Chocolate Baroque Orchard stamp set. As there is a competition over on the Chocolate Baroque web site with Spring as it's theme I thought I would share my Spring themed card to perhaps give you a bit of inspiration as there is plenty of time for you to add your entry into the mix.

I started by creating a background with a wash of water colour for the sky and landscape on water colour card and then stamped the three trees with Sepia Versafine. The blossom was stamped with various pink toned Adirondack Die inks and dots of white marker pen were added for interest.

Thanks for taking a peek

Paisley Elephant

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I needed to make a card for a special friend to let her know I was thinking of her and she also happens to adore elephants. After looking through my stash I found this Paisley Elephant set that came from Chocolate Baroque, however I think this actual set has sadly been discontinued. If you are after an elephant themed stamp set though, Chocolate Baroque do have an Indian Elephant set just here

This card has been stamped with Versafine ink and water-coloured with brush markers.

Just a little heads up that there will be some competitions and give-aways this month over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team blog, so don't forget to keep popping in to see what's going on.

Thanks for stopping by.
