Hi everyone. Here are a couple of quick cards I made for a post which Chocolate Baroque do once a month over on their Design Team Blog featuring cards which take about 15 minutes to make.
started this using two different images from the Nature's Paisley set
of stamps using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and heat embossing with
Versamark Ink and WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then blended ink
into the background using Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Carved Pumpkin
and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. I added a bit of script from the Paisley Elephant set using Blueprint Sketch DI ink, and then added a little stamp from
the Indian Textiles set and heat embossed with WOW Silver Metallic EP. I also
defined the edge a bit more with the Blueprint Sketch.
I finished it with a piece of turquoise vellum stamped and heat embossed with the sentiment which wraps around the background before adhering to the white base card.
For this second card I
used a flower image from the Indian Textiles set, and stamped the flowers using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and coloured
using Abandoned Coral DI and Fossilised Amber for the flowers, and some
more Fossilised Amber and Twisted Citron for the foliage, applied with a
waterbrush I then filled in the background using Salty Ocean and some
more twisted citron together with a bit of Blueprint Sketch around the
edges, again using a waterbrush. The water had made the lines of the stamped flowers a bit indistinct so I defined them with a very fine Black Micron Pen.
I die cut it with a
Crealies Pierced Rectangle and added a white layer behind it. I then
added one of the stamps from Nature's Paisleys set to each of the corners of
the white base card using Versamark and WOW Gold Metallic Embossing
Powder before mounting the flowers on to it.
