Are we all ready for the weekend then? I love weekends as they usually give me the opportunity to spend some time in my craft room, which I love.
I'm here today to share a card that I've made for the colour challenge over at Chocolate Baroque. I love Chocolate Baroque stamps and I've really enjoyed watching Lesley Wharton demonstrate them recently on Hochanda, I think she's a true crafter and a great inspiration to both new and accomplished stampers. I've watched the challenges come and go but I haven't joined in before as I only own one set of their stamps but when I saw the latest colour challenge, I thought I would have a go and join in this time, so here's my creation:
I used Ink Dusters to colour the background with the yellow ink and then used a circular mask to create the Sun by going over the sky again with more yellow and then with terracotta. Next, I used a stencil to add the mountains. With my background now in place, I stamped the flower and I used some bleach to take out the colour. I then water coloured the head of the flower with the purple and cranberry and the part below was coloured with cranberry and terracotta. When this was dry, I highlighted the edges with a white pen. I stamped around the edge of the card with another stamp from the set and then used a finger dauber, first with purple, then cranberry to create a vignette to draw the eye into the image. Finally, I finished by adding a computer printed butterfly. I stuck the butterfly onto card and then fussy cut it out before curving the wings to give them some dimension.
That's me all done for today so I'll wish you all a happy weekend and hopefully lots of happy crafting :)
