Spring into Summer by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope you are all well.  I'm back again with my second post this month and I've chosen four mini projects to share with you today.  Last year Chocolate Baroque added blank calendars (Blank 2019 Calendar/Planner) to their range and I decorated several for Christmas presents and one for myself.  

For the first project I have used stamps from the ButterflyDaisy Collage set, Distress Ink, purple Versafine ink, alcohol pens and a stencil from my stash.  I stamped a large collage image in the center of the picture area, then stamped a couple of daisies and butterflies.  I used alcohol pens to colour all the images.  I then used a stencil and DI to create the background.

For this one I used stamps from the Steampunk Travel  and Steampunkery sets, metalic paints, Distress Inks, alcohol pens and a couple of masks from my stash.  I stamped several images using black Versafine and embossed them with clear powder.  I used paints, inks and pens to colour them, using metalic paints for the metal parts.  I then used the stencils with a DI to create a back ground.

This project uses stamps from the Underwater Kingdom and Seadragon sets, Distress Ink, Koh-I-Noor paints, black Versafine ink, clear EP and a stencil from my stash.    I began by stamping and embossing all the images and then painting them.  I took a stencil from my stash and applied DI through it to give the picture a watery background.

For this month I decided to go sunny and hot!  (Well I can dream can't I?)  I used stamps from the Indian Elephant and Paisley Elephant sets, Distress inks, black Versafine ink, clear EP and a gold pen.  I stamped and embossed the elephants first then masked them.  I then stamped and embossed the Palace silhouette image between the elephants, and stamped it again in second generation ink.  I then stamped a script image repeatedly across the page and used one of the worker stamps to fill any spaces in the background.  I used a black fine liner pen to ground the Palaces and the elephants then removed the masks and coloured in the elephants.

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope you have found my little collection enjoyable!  I'll be back again next month with more craftiness to share with you  :)
