Floral Beauties (by Julie)



Hello and welcome! The four new stamps Chocolate Baroque have to offer you this month are a real treat, so today I have chosen two of them to show you and they are Crackling Rose and Floral Musica.


This first card is Crackling Rose, which I have stamped onto watercolour card using Onyx Black Versafine and then water-coloured with brush markers. I cut the design out using an oval die and layered onto another oval matt, coloured with Hickory Smoke Distress ink which I then over stamped with the crackle egg from the clear, Natural Egg set. The birthday sentiment is from Amazing Birthday, which again has been cut using a die. I then finished off the card by running Crystal Stickles around the edges of the die cut pieces and to the rose design.


Floral Musica was used to create my second card and was stamped and water-coloured as before.
The base card was stamped with the heart from Music Fanfare and coloured with Marigold and Mustard Seed Distress inks and then finished off with touches of a white high-lighter pen.

Many thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon.
