Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts, our host this week is Helene whose theme is 'Summertime' and we have a pretty Chocolate Baroque stamp as a prize called Lady in Hat who I think looks very Summery.
Lesley will be sharing a new and very exciting collection of stamps on Hochnda TV on Tuesday 7th July at 10am and 3pm, these are something really different and you won't want to miss out.
I have used several Chocolate Baroque stamp sets here including June Fairy, Glorious Spring and Wisteria Lane onto an inky background of Oxides and alcohol inks which I am finding are rather a fun combination to play with and seems to work best on a smooth finish rather than glossy cardstock. The sentiment is also from the June Fairy set
And carrying on the Chocolate Baroque theme, heres a couple I posted on the CB blog yesterday using the beautiful Katya.................keep your eyes on the samples on Tuesday's shows and you will see she's a lady of many disguises!! I also used Just Butterflies and sentiment from Words of Love .
This one uses elements from the new Timeless set onto an inky background with random stamping using Ephemera 2, Edgy Edges and another sentiment from Words of Inspiration, it's a set I bought many years ago in Glenda days long before I was a DT member with them and still probably my favourite CB sentiment set.
Have a good weekend all and as always many thanks for your kind words and visits.
Fabulous and beautiful cards.
Enjoy the weekend;-))m
Wonderful cards, I just adore the background and stamps in the first card. Hope you are keeping well. Sending hugs. Anesha
Fantastic cards Brenda, but have to say the top one if my favourite. I wish the it felt like summertime here in Hampshire, but the last few days have been quite chilly at times.
Beautiful collection of cards Brenda all so different bu equally stunning
Beautiful show case of cards Brenda love them all. Weather not good here either wet and damp. I had another flare up of the gallbladder last night so not feeling to good today.still waiting for operation. Hope your feeling ok. Enjoy your weekend.
All wonderful cards Brenda, but the first one is amazing! Such striking colours. I even had to show hubby how good it was :) x
Amazing work as ever Brenda - love your first card - that background is stunning. The watches are a great masculine 'make' and I too love that sentiment
Gorgeous cards B. x
An improvement required from the party hangover I think!
Ah, I have and use that word set, too Brenda. I haven't used it in a long while, though. Glenda and I went back many years. I first met her at Port Sunny, when she came to speak with Jenny (Artistic Stamper) who I was working for that day - oh the days of Radiant Pearls :-) It was before she bought the company that later became Chocolate Baroque. I have quite a few of those. I love her Yahoo Group. Gosh that's a long time ago!
Love your fairy card. That inky background is gorgeous. I haven't tried alcohol inks with Oxides...h'mm, I'm tempted, though I only have a small number of the later colours, so mine are mainly Adirondacks, lol. It turned out beautifully! Your highlights are perfect.
Lovely samples - she must be so grateful to have you. Love the triptych. It's a long time since I made one of those, too, though I do have plans if my arch dies ever turn up!
You've done yourself proud, today. Gorgeous art!
Oh my goodness, what a glorious background you've given the June Fairy Brenda. It looks wonderfully other-worldly. The arched triptych is lovely too - I'm rather liking the dignified Katya - and you've created another beautiful detailed collage background for your third card.
Enjoy your weekend,
Beautiful, beautiful cards Brenda, especially the first one with the Summer Fairy, but all have super designs and colours, Kate x
Wow ...how creative and absolutely beautiful. The Summer card is stunning x.
Another terrific trio Brenda. Such lovely colours on your summer card and the bubbly background is intriguing. Katya really is a beauty and the arch gatefold card is the perfect shape for her stunning headpiece!! I love the aged paper with the bits and pieces behind the timepieces on the last card xx
Great cards, as ever. I really love the backgrounds on all 3 cards, all so different and yet all so wonderful. I will have to try alcohol ink with oxides as I have never thought of doing that before xx
lovely cards Brenda!
A gorgeous selection of cards Brenda. I particularly love the top one - that background looks fab, a perfect little fairy scene.
Hope you are well
A really fabulous collection of cards Brenda, great images, colours and designs.
Wow that top card is stunning
Wonderful cards, Brenda. I especially love the first one, what a beautiful atmospheric scene! xx
I love the two CB-samples; they are great!, but...the Lavinia card is my favorite; great colours and a beautiful scene! Hope the weekend is a good one for you! Hugs, Gerrina
All wonderful and different themed cards today Brenda, xxxx
gorgeoussssssssssss and 2 beautiful cards Brenda
All very beautiful cards, Brenda! The alcohol inks background works really well on your Lavinia card. x
wow the colours on your first card are just so intense - beautiful scene. I have the lady on the second lovely card, inked and used her, but she's not made it onto a card yet lol! Great incorporation of the rings onto your third inky card.
WOW all stunning cards Brenda love the fabulous background and silhouette stamps on the first one though
Wonderful creations, I especially like the white and blue pearls on the wisteria.
Wow!! Avevo visto il bellissimo trittico con Katya nei toni del viola e la card con gli orologi sul blog di CB, ma la prima card è sicuramente la mia preferita. Sai che adoro le fate e le tue card sceniche e questa è davvero super con quei colori così vibranti e la texture di alcohol inks sugli oxides!! Una scena magica e meravigliosa!!! Sono felice di vedere che hai ritrovato la tua ispirazione!!
All very gorgeous Brenda, Katya looked fab as a Native American. Your first card is very enchanting and lovely stamps and the background is amazing.
Lovely cards, Brenda! The first one is mesmerizing!
