Good morning all you crafty Peeps, I hope you week is going well, it's my turn to post over at the Chocolate Baroque DT blog again today sharing some more of my makes using the stamps that Lesley showcases on Hochanda in August, the first show featured a wonderful collection of Vintage inspired floral stamps and the second show was all about Winter and Christmas. I will share a few of my samples for both shows with you.
Starting with the card at the top which features Flora Musica I stamped onto a Distress Oxide background and the used DI's to colour the image. Using Decorative Edges I stamped some random harlequins using the same Oxide inks, a little Butterfly from Just Butterflies and sentiment from Words of Inspiration which I think is my all time favourite Chocolate Baroque sentiment set.
I am also tucking in an entry for the new Butterfly Challenge, I'm ashamed to say I have not joined in for weeks but just happened to see the new theme pop up on my dashboard and knew I had a card in my gallery that would fit in a treat, the theme is of course a Butterfly plus the choice of Silhouette and/or Indigo, I think I have ticked sufficient boxes with this one. The image is Stampendous and the sentiment Penny Black.
For this card I again created an Oxide ink background and the overstamped with the holly from Winter Birds using Versafine blue ink. The central panel has a sentiment from the new Christmas Word Plate and again the same holly around the edges.
This one was a bit of an experiment !! Yet another Oxide ink background............yes I am a bit obsessed with them and over stamped with Harlequin Bouquet which I stamped with Versafine black and coloured in with the same DI's. I then covered the whole piece with three layers of Versamark and heat embossed each layer with detail clear poweder and then the madness set in..........I cut the piece into seven piece and rearranged onto a piece of coordinating cardstock, but do quite like the finished effect.
For my final card I used Kraft card, a mask and a white inkpad to create the Christmas bauble shape and with the mask still in place stamped the house from New England Winter using Gathered Twigs DI and finally the little sentiment set from Frosty Trees and a white bow to finish.
As always my thanks for popping in today and I hope I have inspired you to go check out the lovely stamps from the shows.
