A Collection of Cacti (by Jodie)

Hello everyone, today sees the second of our blog posts from Guest Designer Jodie. She has created a lovely card featuring some of our fabulous cacti range.

Jodie writes:

Good morning everyone, this is my second project for Chocolate Baroque. This time I was inspired to create a card using these cool succulent images.
Because the set contained many great images, it was difficult to choose just one to use on my card, so I didn't!

Stamps- Scrumptious Succulents set
Ink- Ranger's Archival Ink Jet Black
Paint- Distress Paints including Tarnished Brass, Salty Ocean, Spun Sugar & Scattered Straw
Distress Stain- Peeled Paint
Paper- A4 Drawing Cartridge
Liquid Frisket Dip-Nib Set

I stamped the first image onto the paper.
Next I applied the liquid frisket and let this dry completely.
Next I stamped the second image over the first, with the liquid frisket creating a mask.
Finally I applied a bit of liquid frisket over part of the second image, let dry and stamped a third image.
I stamped all images with Archival ink to create a collage of images for the card.
I used the rubber cement pick up tool, picked off the dried liquid frisket and began colouring in the images.
First I used stain to paint the green parts of the succulents.
I watered down the Distress paint, and used that to colour in the remainder of the collage.
Once the card was complete, I added embellishments by dipping the handle of the brush into Distress Paint Tarnished Brass ande added some dots.

Jodie will be back next week with her final project for this month.

  3. I love the pretty shades of pink and green Jodie for these beautiful cacti, and some great masking and stamping to create a wonderful group of them, also some great background stamping in complementary colours too. x

  4. Great stamping and colouring too, and I really like the colour palette that you’ve used x
