Autumn fantasy (by Miranda)

Hello fans of Chocolate Baroque,

Here I am with my 3rd post working with the great stamp sheet ' Folk Art Garden'. I stamped the Folk art garden stamp using a brown colour onto the background. I die cut a large circle out of this background. Then I colored with color pencils for some accents.

But the circle was too large for my card so I did die cut a smaller circle and use the left over piece also. 

Than used a bit of my imagination and stamped some ' dangles' at the bottom of the circle and a flower from the sheet in the circle.........anyway I had a fun time thinking of what to do.......I gave accents with some glitter pens on the ' dangles'.

I embossed the butterfly twice and colored it with watercolor markers, than decoupaged it and attached them to the card....

You can find the ' dangle' stamp on the ' Wisteria' stamp sheet. There is a small and large one on the sheet.

close up to see some shimmer accents........

And here again all tree Autumn posts together, always love these vibrant warm colors!

Well, this was my last post for this guest design episode but I will certainly be back for more in time........I am working on one which has a lot of coloring....will show it soon!
Thanks for your kind comments and till next time,

  7. This third card is gorgeous using the Folk Art Garden stamp Miranda. I love the way you have die cut the circle and then moved the smaller outer circle down to give an interesting shape, and the background stamping goes beautifully with it, and your colours with the pinks and browns are so that butterfly too, a great finishing touch. All three cards are so different and use the stamp stunningly. x
