Chocolate Baroque: Magical Birthday

Hello, friends! Time for another Chocolate Baroque inspired show and tell featuring the Spring Fairy Collection Multi-Buy DL sheets. I made a shiny sparkly birthday card with stamps from the March Fairy DL sheet. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque's Words to Sparkle and Dazzle A6 sheet.

I started by stamping the images with VersaFine Onyx Black onto Canson Watercolour paper. Then I coloured them in with Caran d'Ache Suprasoft Pencils. For the hills, I did some masking wth torn paper and applied Mowed Lawn DI. There's also a light dusting of Tumbled Glass DI around the top edge for the sky.

Here's a closer look at the image. I added Stardust Stickles om her outfit because fairies shine, don't they? There's also "Pearl" Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder on her wings. Then I added little blobs of Mint and Daffodil Liquid Pearls.

Challenges:
Colour Inspiration Monday #22: AG with Hand Coloured Image

That's all from me today. It's been gloriously sunny and not too hot. And with the days getting longer.... oh it's been truly magical! Thank you so much for stopping by.

Beijinhos!

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35 - Final Challenge

Welcome to Week 1 of Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35. Sadly, this will be our final challenge. We have had a wonderful time playing, creating and having fun. But, like all things in life, there comes a time when even good things come to an end. I hope you'll join us in our last show and tell using this colour swatch:

As always, you can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch, using as much or as little of each colour as you wish. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display the winner's badge on their blog.

Here's my card featuring a stamp from the March Fairy DL stamp sheet. I mirror stamped the image.  To be honest, it turned out better than expected! To prepare the background, embossed a piece of watercolour cardstock with WRMKWhimsy folder and applied Distress inks: Pine Needles and Mowed Lawn. Then I sprinkled some watered down gesso and finished it with droplets of Liquid Pearls: Mint ad Holly.

I did the mirror stamping with VersaFine Black Onyx because the slow drying gave me enough time to position the mirror image. Mememto Tuxedo Black would have dried too fast before I got my act together. When completely dry, I coloured the image with Copics and finished the card with a couple of purple bling.
Challenges:
Cardz 4 Galz #47: Add Texture
Through The Purple Haze #125: AG
Crafty Gals Corner #123: Add Flowers

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 20th June 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 28 June 2017. I hope you'll play along one last time and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Beijinhos!

Chocolate Baroque: Fantasy Castle

Good morning, friends! I have a simple card to share with you today featuring a stamp from Chocolate Baroque's  Fantasy Castles A5 sheet. This set is packed with several lovely castles taken straight out of your favourite fairy tale.

I didn't want to fuss with it too much because this card is all about that magical castle. To make the image pop I stamped a background design with a stamp from Texture Fragments onto grey cardstock with Ranger Cool Graphite Dye Ink.


I coloured the image with Copics and applied some Stardust Stickles to the water. To finish, a light dusting with Distress Ink around the edges. And of course... Wink of Stella on the domes for a touch of magical sparkle!

Thak you so much for stopping by. I'm sorry I'm not as active on the blog as I used to be. Life is kinda overwhelming at the moment and I'm barely managing to get my DT stuff done. I'm hoping the dust will settle soon... fingers crossed! Your comments and comments are greatly appreciated... and do not go unnoticed.

Beijinhos!
