My Project with the free digital paper download from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. Have you seen this month’s lovely new digital paper download on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog? The gorgeous Shabby Paint background. I immediately saw mountains and water so decided to create a scene with mine.

AW Digital Challenge 21


  • Shabby Paint free download paper
  • Fantasy Castles, Magical Landscapes and Tall Trees stamp sets
  • 20.5cm square card base, white stamping card and piece of waste acetate
  • Inkpads: Ranger Archival (Coffee), Distress Inks (Gathered Twigs, Forest Moss), Memento (London Fog), Versamark
  • WOW Embossing Powder (Olive)
  • Spectrum Aqua watercolour pens (browns, turquoise, green)
  • Alcohol marker and fine tipped permanent pen (brown)
  • Stickles glitter glue (Crystal)
  • PVA pearls (turquoise) and Ranger Glossy Accents

How it was done:

  1. Printed the paper onto A4 and trimmed to 19.5cm to mat onto the card base. Outlined with brown marker and blended Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs) in around the edges.
  2. Stamped the castle onto white card. Extended the rocks by drawing with a fine marker. Coloured with watercolour pens and Distress Inks using a wet brush. Cut out to layer onto the background.
  3. Stamped the castle onto acetate with Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs), then transferred the ink onto the background paper to create a mirror image reflection. Then glued down the stamped and coloured castle image over the top.
  4. Used the fine tipped marker to draw in further details to the scene – creating the mountains and foreground. Stamped the clouds with Memento Ink.
  5. Stamped the tree with Versamark and heat embossed with the Olive powder. Further coloured the image with watercolour pens and Distress Inks.
  6. Finished with some glitter on the mountain tops, Glossy Accents on the castle domes, and PVA pearls.
