Guest Blog Post - Chocolate Baroque Dream by Linda Simpson

Here is the next guest post in our mini series from Linda Simpson. This is her take on a circular design using the Tangled Fragments stamp set.


Today I am sharing my second GDT for Chocolate Baroque




1. Base card is cut out using Spellbinder Grande Scalloped Circle Die
2. The first layer is pale yellow card cut out with Spellbinder Grande Circle Die, I then inked around the edges with Dew Drop Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink
3. The background is made by using shaving foam and spraying Cosmic Shimmer Mica mists into the foam and placing the card onto the foam then lifting off, removing the foam which reveals the pattern.  
4. I stamped the image using Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with embossing powder, this was then cut out with scalloped circle die and the edges inked with Cosmic Copper ink. I coloured some of the shapes with Spica in brown and yellow.
5. To finish off I added the ticket Dream.

I don't know what you think but this reminds me of a cream pie, definitely dreamy! Well done Linda and thank you for sharing another lovely piece of artwork.
