floral harmony (by Veronica)

Weren't last months ' Chocolate Baroque shows on Hochanda  wonderful , hope you are enjoying the chance to catch up on everyone's lovely samples for the shows.

Here is my last floral sample,  this is quite a large stamp - think A6 to have an idea of the size, this card is 8" square.

The image was stamped in black versafine, clear embossed and covered with masking fluid. I used grey brusho powder to create the background, and then coloured the image with watercolour pencils.

The next two pictures are of two of the colouring sheets - these are A4 size and very detailed - they will take you some time to colour in!
I used alcohol markers to colour them in  - they were hardly used, and I didn't want to run out of a colour partway through if I used water-based markers.

My last card used the medallions from the baroque corners plate stamped onto dark brown card using versamark and a pale blue embossing powder.
The front of the white 8" square base card blank was scored halfway and folded back. The inner brown panel was 7" square, and the smaller medallion was stamped in each corner. The front panel was 3.5" x7", with the medallion stamped on both top and bottom left corners.
The centre panel was cut to fit the large medallion image after stamping, so I would guess it ended up about 5" square, and it was mounted onto a matching blue card mat and then onto the folded back front panel making sure I only glued the half that was on the front that the card could be opened.....I did (briefly) think about adding a sentiment to the inner panel, decided against on the basis that I wouldn't get it straight!


  1. Fabulous creations, so inspiring! The colouring is absolutely delightful and love the use of brushos for the background in the first one!

  2. I love the two different cards you have made here withe that pretty large flower and Brusho background Veronica and your colouring of this and the colouring pages is beautiful. I adore the fold back card with the Baroque corners on the dark brown card which gives it a great dramatic look and the gorgeous blue embossing is perfect with the brown. x

  3. Great creations, love the blue embossing, certainly makes it pop's!Fabulous colouring of those sheets, Those colouring sheets would be great to do in the evenings whilst the other half is watching the tv!
