Hello Peeps, hope all is well in your parts.
I have done just done the draw for the NEC tickets and you will find the lucky winners a bit further down this post, but first I have a card to share using some Chocolate Baroque stamps. It's one of my first pieces for them as a team member and more of my work will be on the CB blog in a week or so.
So many of the CB stamps lend themselves to the vibrant backgrounds you can achieve with Dylusions and the Indian Elephant and Indian Textiles sets which I have used for this card are no exception. I started by spraying the reverse side of a sheet of centura pearl with Dylusions Pure Sunshine, Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Postbox Red plus the mandatory spritz of peal mica spray.
I then stamped the images with black archival ink plus a bit of background stamping using CB Decorative Edges using the second and third generation stamping to get a more faded look. Next I bleached out the colours from the flowers and painted with the same colour Dylusions and used a versamark pen to add detail gold embossing powder to some of the droplet patterns across the top. The words are stamped onto an offcut of the base piece and a nice flourishy organza bow.
I know I am half a day early with this but my day is all planned out for me tomorrow, so here are the names of the people out of the draw who will each receive tickets for two to the NEC Hobbycraft show in November...........
And the surprise gift will go to........................
Fit Kitty who I think is is Canada
