I created this sample for the recent TV shows from Chocolate Baroque on The Craft Channel. Lesley Wharton was fantastic and gave some wonderful demos using the new background stamps. They are so versatile for so many projects and styles.
- Baroque Orchids and Open Weave stamps, Mackintosh Sentiments stamp set
- A5 white card blank, white stamping card and pink vellum
- Acrylic paint (pale aqua)
- Inkpads: Versamark, dye base ink (pink), Distress Ink (Tattered Rose and Peacock Feathers)
- Glitter sparkle embossing powder in white base
- Clear glitter glue and PVA pearls (pale aqua)
- Cut-N-Dry Foam and palette knife
- Die cut and punched flowers, tag, mini doilies, swirls and leaves
- Pink netting (Spider Web) and pink raffia
- Oval Art Nouveaux die (Tonic)
- Lattice embossing folder (Crafters Companion Embossalicious)
- Adhesive and 3D glue gel
- Stamp the white card and mini tag with the Baroque Orchids stamp and aqua acrylic paint. Cut decorative aperture into the stamped mat, distress the edges and curl. Add pink ink to the edges. Tie a bow onto the tag. Tip: Apply the paint to Cut-N-Dry foam with a palette knife, working well into the surface. Use this to apply to your stamp.
- Cut 2 oval mats from the vellum. Stamp using Versamark and the Open Weave stamp. Emboss with glitter powder.
- Emboss a strip of card with the embossing folder. Ink with blue ink to bring up the detail. Distress the edges, and edge with pink ink.
- Edge the card blank with pink ink. Glue all the mats and components to the card front. Embellish with the flowers and swirls.
- Finish with glitter glue and PVA pearls.
Happy Crafting, Anne xxx.
