Baroque hearts and Roses



Good morning Peeps, it's time for another post over at the Chocolate Baroque DT blog showcasing some more 15 minute creations. 

Also don't forgot that Lesley is launching a new One Day Special at 8am this evening on Hochanda, there are some fabulous new stamps so I do hope you will tune in.

Both of my shares are samples from the shows on Hochanda earlier this month, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the beautiful Rose stamps. And the card at the top, although simple was one of my favourites. I created the background with DI's and an acrylic block with grid lines, inked the block and spritzed with water before 'stamping. I then stamped the Rose Script Background image with archival ink and bleached out the colour and have to say I rather like the sepia affect the bleach gave to the inked stamp.


For this one I created a background with DI's, dabbing them onto a craft sheet, spritzing with water and swooshing the card through it. I stamped the baroque heart from the Harlequin Rose set four times, stamped the sentiment and used TL dies to create the mat and layering.

Many thanks for taking a peek today and I hope you can find a moment to pop over to the DT blog to see what my teamies have created.
