Rainbow tree!

I have always been a great fan of the Chocolate Baroque Wild Meadow stamps, so I was excited to be sent the Teeny Weeny Meadow set ahead of release to have a play! The set contains some of the old favourites in miniature and some new images and it is one of these I have used on this card. This is the branches of a tree taken from a photograph. I have given it the Andy Warhol treatment!


I repeat stamped the tree image in black archival ink and cut out the tiles. I used at least 4 colours of ink on each tile in 6 colour families to build a depth of colour with Cut n Dry foam. I always try and leave a pale patch in the centre to get a glowing effect. I added a sentiment from the Artistic Affirmations plate embossed in teal metallic EP onto white card and the shaded with inks.The panels are matted onto hammered black card.

Needless to say I can highly recommend this versatile A6 set, as well as a number of cracking new stamp sets over on the Chocolate Baroque on line shop.

Have a happy and creative long weekend!
