Colour Challenge 23

Hi, thanks for popping in. Today marks the start of the second week over on Chocolate Baroque's Challenge Blog and here is the colour inspiration:

Here is my card made with this months challenge colours, which I may add, is not a particular favourite of mine but then some colours are easier to work with than others.
The background is Distress inks and a stencil and the stamped flowers are from Sunny Sunflowers

Woodland Tree

 Just a quick post to share a card made with the Glade Create a Tree stamp from Chocolate Baroque. Lesley will be on the Craft Channel at 5:00pm today demoing Brushos along with this stamp and lots of other fantastic stamp designs.

I started this card by making a watercolour wash for the background, before stamping the tree and leaves. Next I dabbed white Gesso all around the edge and when it was dry I sponged over Hickory Smoke Distress ink. The cracks are from one of the clear stamp egg sets, also from Chocolate Baroque.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon.
