River King and Solitary Tree.

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well today.  I have another couple of samples from last months shows to share with you featuring more beautiful stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

River King.

I have used stamps from the Kingfisher Song and Sticks and Stones sets; Distress Inks, sepia Versafine ink, clear EP, Koh-I-Nor watercolour paints.

On a piece of Drawing Cartridge I stamped and embossed the Kingfisher, branch and bridge scene images, then masked them off.  I used water colour paints to create a dawn (or dusk) sky and a calm river scene for the background.  I then removed the masks and painted the stamped images.  I took a spare piece of card and stamped and embossed the Flag Iris image twice.  I then painted them and cut them out.  I matted the focal panel onto dark card, then attached the Iris images in 3D.

On a white base card I stamped several worker images around the edges of the card using Distress Inks then attached the focal panel.

Solitary Tree.

For this quick card I have used stamps from the Trees A Crowd set; Distress Inks, acrylic paints, black Versafine ink, clear EP.

I began this project with a background that I had made previously with acrylic paints and a Gelli plate.  I stamped a large bare tree image in black ink and embossed it in clear EP.  I trimmed the panel and blended ink around the edges.  I then drew a border around the edges of the painted background with a fine liner pen.

I took a Kraft base card and stamped along two sides creating a border to go either side of the focal panel.  I then attached the FP to the card.

Thank you for dropping in today, I hope that you have enjoyed my post and been a little bit inspired.  I shall be back later this month with some more CB samples so until then take care and stay safe,

  1. Two brightly coloured cards Penny, and love the first with the kingfisher and your painted scene is delightful, and echoed softly in the background to the scene, and then the second with that burst of colour behind the tree, and lots more lovely trees in the background. Beautiful. x

  2. Two very beautiful and vibrant cards. I really like how you've raised the flowers on the first on as it gives your card some added dimension that works really well x
