It's the first Sunday of the month so time for our new challenges at We Love Chocolate Baroque and Stamping Sensations. Our themes for this month are 'Bright Sunny Colours' and 'Beautiful Blooms'. Prizes at both will be the winners choices of stamps from Chocolate Baroque
There seems to be rather a a lot of colour going on in this post, but crafting with bold and vivid palettes does make me happy! For the top card I brayered Dylusions paint onto textured card to achieve a more rustic finish. Next I stamped Canary Bird Rose focally, and heat embossed with detail clear EP as I find ink takes forever to dry on this paint. Then stamped a second time and coloured with the same Dylusions and paper pieced. Some numbers from Just Useful and Ace Card and sentiment from Life is so much Better.
After stencilling a background I repeat stamped using masking as I worked my way up using one of the blooms from Fresh Florals to create a spray of flowers, then coloured with sparkle pens. The harlequins in the background are from Decorative Edges stamped with Versavfine Clair and sentiment again from Life is so much Better.
On this one again an inked and stencilled background then stamped and coloured, stamped a second time and paper pieced. Two die cut circles to highlight the blooms the script worker stamp from Ace Card, it's one I seem to use over again again, and the single word from Sow the Seeds.
Finally, a bit of mixed media with an inky background stamping onto that and the chipboard shapes with worker stamps from Just Useful, Life is so much Better , Edgy Edges, Small Graph Paper, the the focal Butterfly is from Tangled Garden, sentiment again from Life is so much Better.......theres another set in the pipeline which I just might give some sneak peeks of soon.
Yesterday I shared some photos of Rosa, our new family member who is eight weeks old, she's forever on the move and I'm yet to get a decent front on photo of her. She loves the garden and here she is, smallest in the pack but clearly thinks she's as big as the rest.
Such has been the week with our new Little Miss moving in that I forgot to share my cards from my post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog this week, so here they are, full details on my post here:
I do hope you will join us this month.
