Song Thrush and Arched Landscape (by Asha)

Happy New Year, friends and welcome to a brand new year of more crafty goodness from Chocolate Baroque. You've seen the new January release stamps and must agree that they are just LOVELY.

Today I want to share with you a couple of cards featuring the new Cling Mounted Individual Stamps which were released when the new Chocolate Baroque website was launched on December 18th. You can see Glenda's original post here.

My first creation is a fresh and vibrant card showcasing the beautiful Song Thrush Silhouette stamp which I coloured it with watercolours. For the background, I stamped the small leaf from Butterfly Dreams A5 sheet on to a piece of yellow card stock. The sentiment is also from Butterfly Dreams.


The spotlight on my second card falls on the Arched Landscape stamp. This time I coloured the image with alcohol markers. I also did some background stamping using a little stamp from the Fleurs Nouveau A5 sheet. The sentiment is from the Patchwork Landscape A4 sheet.


There are a total of 10 new Cling Mounted Individual Stamps, each one a thing of beauty. I hope you've been inspired to play with yours. As always, swing by regularly for more crafty ideas from the rest of the DT. Details of inks and colours are available on my blog.

Beijinhos,
Asha

  2. Two inspiring and pretty makes Asha. I like the use of just one stamp in one colour on both the backgrounds and the lovely fresh bright colours on the main images. x

  3. Your lovely rivvon on the first picks out the lime green highlights beautifully & I like the way your stitching echoes the detail on the the little Butterfly Dreams leaf you used for the background. It's lovely seeing your use of the 'little oddment' stamps for backgrounds in both of these projects. The second is my favourite with your colouring of the trees making them very tactile & full of dimension. your little touches of blue on the clouds is very effective in just hinting at shadows. The sentiment is a perfect choice for the image too.
