Summer evenings by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, I hope your enjoying your summer so far, it seemed like a long time coming this year!

This months theme for Chocolate Baroque DT blog is "Summer/Sunshine" I've gone more with Summer evenings.

My first card I used a heavy stamping card and sprinkled with Brusho's, I liberally spritzed with water holding up and letting it run down then turning it to run the other way, I let it dry naturally, I started by stamping the Bullrushes from Owl edges in Onyx black Versafine inkpad, then using a green Versafine inkpad I stamped the pretty wild flowers from Floral Edges, I then stamped Woodland tree in Onyx black Versafine inkpad, I stamped the leafy edge stamp again from the Floral Edges set using Versamark inkpad and heat embossing using a sparkle copper Wow Powder, I also stamped and heat embossed in Gold sparkle Wow powder the leaves from the Woodland Tree set, the sentiment is See Beauty and the little birds are from Landscape Edges set

My second card is various Alcohol inks onto Yupo paper and blending solution, the stamps are from Patchwork Landscape, once my back ground was dry which only takes a minute or two I dusted with and Anti static bag and used Black Archival inkpad.

Thank you so much for spending the time to visit, I love using Chicolate Baroque stamps they so unique and such amazing quality. The team are fantastically talented, please pop back each day and leave them some love too, many thanks and have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx



  1. Love your work Zoe xxx Both these cards are stunning xxx

  2. Two beautiful cards Zoe and I love the blues and greens and gold embossing of that pretty scene and then the pinks and purples with the patchwork landscape on the yupo paper creates a wonderful effect. x
