More Patchwork ideas...... (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Have you seen the new gorgeous stamps at Chocolate Baroque? The 'Patchwork Landscapes' are so much fun to colour and also to add your own 'patchwork' in every way you can imagine.......

I have made this one using the pillow top background.......I thought it would be a good match with these stamps.......I've stamped with black and coloured with the Distress markers. Scored the squares and sponged the areas in between by masking........You can find the technique here.
You can find the large butterfly on the 'Tangled Garden sheet' and the smaller version is a clear stamp.The wings are partially accentuated with the clear Wink of Stella pen but you can't see the lovely shine here. 

Maybe I did inspire you to give it a try?
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!

  5. how wonderful Miranda - beautiful work xx

  6. This is so beautiful and I love the quite subdued colour palette you have used but still so pretty, and the shading on the patchwork background gives it great dimension. The butterflies work wonderfully with the patchwork landscape stamps too.

  7. OMGeee! I didn't recognise the background technique because you have such a light touch with it - blooming gorgeous - love all the stamps, the colours, everything! I love every little detail on this card - thank you for sharing and inspiring Karen x

  8. These are gorgeous Miranda, loving the background!

  9. Beautiful! I am really loving this pretty Patchwork Landscapes set! Great colors on your card!

  10. Thank you so much for the link to the tutorial. The effect is very striking when combined with the tree & those particular butterflies. Your use of colours is very striking with the black & white providing a perfect foil for the brilliant green & orange. I especially like your multiple matting with the wide white frame.
