Good afternoon. Today I am sharing a set of cards created with the new stencils from Chocolate Baroque. These are fairly quick makes.

I decided to try running the Russian Spires stencil through my die cut machine on the embossing setting to get added texture. I also brayered over the stencil with glycerine before embossing. This transferred to the card providing a medium on which to sprinkle embossing powders. I experimented and played with different colours, adding additional colouring with pens or pencils. I quite liked the distressed effect.

Materials:

  • Russian Spires, Silhouette Palaces 1 and 2 stencils, and Words to Dazzle & Sparkle stamp set
  • Card blanks (20.5 X 15cm), smooth card (black and white), glitter card (lilac, cream, blue)
  • Glycerine (available from the chemist)
  • Heat embossing powders (gold, pink, amethyst)
  • Versamark embossing pen
  • Alcohol markers (black, grey)
  • Acrylic pen (opaque white)
  • Metallic coloured pencils (Faber Castell)
  • Watercolour and Sparkle pens (Spectrum Noir)
  • Pebeo Gilding Wax (gold, silver)
  • Die to cut sentiment panel (Tattered Lace Pin Dot Rectangles)
