Morning all, today I have another Chocolate Baroque piece of artwork to share which you will also find on the Design Team Blog using the gorgeous Indian Textiles and June Fairy stamp sets.
I started by dabbing Distress Inkpads Mustard Seed and Broken China onto a craft sheet and spritzing liberally with water then dragging the reverse side of a piece of single sided cardstock through the wet inks.
When dry [I use a heat gun to speed the process] I took the lids from two different sized pots of embossing powder and ‘inked’ the edges with the same two distress inks and randomly ‘stamped’ circles onto the inked cardstock, it’s a good idea to give another quick blast of the heat gun before moving on as distress ink can take a little time to dry.
Using a Versafine Black Inkpad I stamped the large flower from the stamp set, added Detail Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. Next I bleached out the colour from the flowers using household bleach and a fine paint brush.
I coloured the bleached out flowers with Dylusions Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine and Vibrant Turquoise. I then stamped the trailing Ivy from the June Fairy stamp set and also added a hint of Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise to the berries.
After matting and layering onto coordinating cardstock I added a matching organza bow.
As always, my thanks for your visit today.
