Hello and welcome to my blog :) Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the Chocolate Baroque challenge blog http://chocolatebaroquechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ challenge # 31. I haven't joined in with the colour challenge for a couple of months and I was eager to jump right back in, especially with such a gorgeous colour palette! For this project I have used stamps from CB Poppy Meadow set; Brushos, Distress Ink, gold marker pen, gold embossing powder, grey Versafine ink.
On a piece of white card I stamped a large Poppy image and masked it. I then used the 'wet on dry' technique with the Brushos, I just love the way the colours spread! I let the colours dry, then used DI's to stamp smaller images randomly all over the panel in 2nd generation ink. I then blended red DI around the edges of the panel.
I removed the masking fluid and used DI's to colour the main image. I then stamped a small butterfly from the Patchwork Butterfly set onto white card, embossed it in gold, cut it out and painted it with DI's. Next I stamped the corner images and embossed them in gold.
I used a gold pen around the edges of the panel and matted it onto some red card, then onto a white base card.
I attached the butterfly with dimensional glue.
I stamped a sentiment onto white card and embossed it in gold. I die cut it, stencilled colour around the edges, and added gold pen before attaching it to the card with dimensional glue. I'm very pleased with this design, red Poppies are my favourite flower and I love using them in my artwork. This card is a great worker card, suitable for men or women and any occasion.
Thanks for popping by my blog today, I hope you enjoyed this post and will visit again soon :)
