Sunday Cards ~ Distress Inks, Embossing Folder and Chocolate Baroque Stamps

Chocolate Baroque Poppy Stamp
My first card today is base on a card we made at Eileens Workshop (
Created a background by using Artist Mask in spots and splats ( dries to a rubber ) left to dry and then used Distress Inks to create the back ground.A quick blast with a heat gun to dry and then use finger to rub the rubber off mask to reveal the white base. Stamped image and coloured with Distress Pens. Stamped Sentiment onto next laer and added black lines to frame. Glued image onto this piece of card and then onto next layer and then card.
Second is based on a Crafts~Too Flowers Embossing folder

Used a textured piece of card and ran folder through Grand Calibur a couple of times to get a deep emboss.Tore edges for a distressed look and inked. Used Distress inks over card first and then used gilding waxes to build up definition. Cut out 3 butterflies from ~Kaisercraft stamps and mounted. A few jewel embellishments and matt and layering to finish.
Have a good week
