A selection of baubles (posted by Elaine)

As you will have seen last weekend, the newest CB stamp set the lovely Artist's Baubles  brings together some old favourites, reflecting the styles and designs of some major nineteenth century artists including some of my own favourities such as Morris, De Morgan Mackintosh and Klimt. I have been having a play with these stamps, while my DT colleagues have been working their magic with Punky Flowers.



I wanted to make a set of cards with each of the baubles. I embossed each one and then coloured them with Prismacolor pencils. I backed each bauble with a scalloped die cut and mounted each onto a toning background colour. To finish I added an embossed sentiment from the Artistic Affirmations set to each card.

This set also has some other lovely elements, a cross, corners and a lovely classical motif which are very useful.

  1. You certainly worked your own magic with this set - absolutely love the way you used matting colours in keeping with each individual motif & used different sentiments too. I particularly like the way each motif's circle 'glows' against its background mat. What an absolute delight.
