Chocolate Baroque Thistle Butterfly
|Hope this conforms to the colours in the new Chocolate Baroque Challenge! |
I have used one of the stamps from the Thistle Butterfly Set and stamped 3 times on some blue Centura Pearl card. Coloured with Promarkers and then stamped Butterfly and coloured with the Challenge colours.
Added some Stickles "White Diamond ".

|This Penny Black Stamp is beautiful.....Created background using an inked background washed over with Gesso to make it more subtle. Pasted through Stencil with a dimension paste. Leave to dry. Then I stamped stamp one image and heat embossed with gold embossing powder cut out painted with Brusho Scarlet - it's so vibrant...Matt and layering and a sentiment to finish..|
stamp and stencil available from Oyster Stamps
|Put a dimension paste through the Maidenhair Fern stencil and left to dry. Used Distressed Paints to colour the tag. Heat gun to dry. Stamped part of a Woodware stamped down a side. I used Treasure Gold Jewels Gilding Wax to highlight the Fern and really buffed it to shine. A few ribbons and a parchment butterfly to finish...|

Free download paper for the back-ground and stamped the berry spray, doves and tree. Double stamped the bird to cut out and colour - to lift the design. Stamped with Memento and coloured with Promarker Pens.

My other card hopefully will appear at a later date as I was making good progress and really pleased with stencilling and stamping and then a finger and wet Glossy Accents got in the way......will see if I can rescue ...lol x
|I cut a Spellbinders aperture and placed the cut mat onto the inside for the sentiment. Stamped and cut out ( matching die is available is you don't do hand cutting!) and assembled flowers. Scored a frame with the Hougie Board before adding the flowers. Added a leaf and flower to the inside to finish. Will need a box envelope to protect the flowers - out comes the Hougie Board for that and I'll pop a flower onto that too.The card base is 7" square for this card from J and C Creations.|
