Morning Peeps, advance warning it's a rather photo heavy post, not only do I have my mid month shares from today's posts over at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges, there is also my artwork from my Chocolate Baroque post here.
So starting with the top card which features the lovely Penny Black Summer Dream along with a Visible Image sentiment, very simply made by masking the edges of a die cut frame and using Distress Markers to ink the blossom branch, spritzing with water for the first stamping and gradually building up with colour with repeat stamping.......all using my invaluable Tonic stamping platform.
Using Penny Black 40-330 Pop Pop Poppy, 40-470 Script and 30-229 Special Wishes
Here I utilised one of many background pieces...............I tend to have a day making background and masterboard's with various mediums and colours ready for making up into creations. I find doing this is invaluable when there is a rush show on TV as half the work has already been done, plus very often if I am struggling for mojo leafing through the pieces in the draw provide the missing inspiration, either with their colours or the stencilling I may have added.
On this occasion I have used a piece that was randomly brayered with acrylic paints and stamped Penny Blacks Pop Pop Poppy using sparkle pens direct to stamp and again layering up the colour using my stamp platform. A PB sentiment, OB Swirls stamped around the edge in gray and PB Tiny Dragons and a few sequins.
This is a sample again for Hochanda, this time for one of Pete Simpson's Artisan Designs shows. I thought the vivid colours I used on this one were perfect for this month Stamping Sensations theme, I stamped each of the blooms onto pieces of card which I had first sprayed with Pixie Powders, cut them out and arranged over some stamped and coloured leaves from the same stamp release. Finally a sentiment from one of the sets in the show and a few sequins.
Now for my chocolate Baroque shares, I won't go into detail here as I have written up all the information and stamp names over at the Chocolate Baroque blog.
