Quirky Scene Created for Chocolate Baroque Challenge 16


I enjoyed making this quirky landscape with the little house stamped on a slant. Thought that it would be a nice card to send and bring a smile to a friend going through a difficult time.

I created it using this months Colour Challenge colours.

AW Challenge 16 scene 2

The stamps (Country Views and Sunburst Scenes) were featured on the recent TV show with Lesley Wharton on The Craft Channel.


  • Country Views, Sunburst Scenes and Mackintosh Sentiments stamp sets
  • DL card blank (approx. 20.5 X 10cm)
  • Printed sentiment from computer
  • White stamping card (suitable for alcohol ink colouring)
  • Spectrum Noir Alcohol ink pens (pale blues and greens, pink/purple, golden yellow and black)
  • Inkpads: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Peeled Paint)
  • Fine tipped marker – alcohol ink resistant (water based)
  • White gel pen
  • Clear crystal glitter glue, blue PVA pearls
  • Adhesive and sticky foam pads

How it was made:

  1. Stamp the scene with Memento ink. Some of the foreground elements, such as the trees, will need to be stamped first and masked before stamping the images behind.
  2. Use black detail pen to draw and ‘join up’ the landscape. Colour with alcohol ink pens. Finish by adding highlights with the opaque white gel pen.
  3. Trim to fit the card front and edge with distress ink and finally black pen to create a frame.
  4. Stamp the sentiment ‘Just to say’ onto a die cut topper and glue on the printed sentiment. Edge with distress ink and black marker. Stick to the card with foam pads.
  5. Finish with a little glitter sparkle on the sun and roof tops, and PVA pearls on the sentiment plaque.

I hope that you like my project. I am looking forward to seeing your entries for the Challenge this month.
