Card created for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 23

I am loving the Colour Challenge this month – just my colours. I have used Brushos for the background and the Gothic Fragments stamp set. I have stamped and cut out the elements, so there is no tricky masking involved. I hope that you like it.

I also sent this one in as one of the TV samples for the recent TV shows on the Craft Channel. Lesley is a fabulous demonstrator – so do look out for the shows and catch up online.

AW Be Happy Challenge 23

Materials:

Step By Step:

  1. Colour the watercolour card with Brushos. Drop crystals into the wet ink and spray with water to get a mottled effect. Spray randomly with mica spray to add more texture and sparkle. Leave to dry.
  2. Stamp the die cut banner background texture with pale turquoise ink and emboss with the clear powder. Stamp the sentiment in dark turquoise.
  3. Stamp the main images onto smooth card with Versafine. Colour with watercolour pens and cut out.
  4. Trim the watercolour card slightly smaller than the card blank and glue down. Glue on the stamped fragments and sentiment banner.
  5. Edge the card with black marker and add faux stitching around the border with white pen.
  6. Finish with a little glitter glue, PVA pearls, die cuts and organza bow.

Still Moon created for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 23 and recent TV show

I am loving the Colour Challenge this month – just my colours. I created this one as one of my TV samples for the recent Brusho’s show on the Craft Channel with the Design-A-Tree sets. Wasn’t Lesley brilliant!

AW Still Moon Challenge 23

Materials:

Step By Step:

  1. Trim the stamping card to approx.14cm square (slightly smaller than the card blank).
  2. Stamp the trees in Vintage Sepia and the sentiment and birds in Onyx Black ink.
  3. Draw a circle in the sky and apply masking fluid.
  4. Prepare Brushos for painting by adding crystals to a little water in a palette. Paint the picture with the inks. Remove the masking fluid and drag some of the colour across the moon.
  5. Spray the moon and central area of the painting sparingly with a little mica spray.
  6. Add a little shading to the trees with the fine tipped marker, extending at the roots to anchor the trees.
  7. Edge the card with black marker and blend Distress Ink in from the edges.
  8. Mount onto the mirror card and glue to the card blank. Finish with a little glitter glue for moonlight sparkle on the branches.

Copper Tree scene card created for the Chocolate Baroque TV show on The Craft Channel

I created this one for Chocolate Baroque as a TV show sample for the recent Brusho’s show on the Craft Channel. Lesley was brilliant! You can still watch the show on catch up if you missed it.

AW Copper Tree

Materials:

Step By Step:

  1. Paint Brusho onto the watercolour card. Whilst still wet drop on some of the crystals and spritz with water to create the tree foliage and foreground. Dry.
  2. Stamp the tree with glue and apply the gilding flakes. Press down the flakes and leave for a few minutes before buffing off with a sponge (to remove the excess). Clean the stamp quickly to remove any glue residue.
  3. Use the fine tipped pen to add some shading to the tree and draw in a base to anchor the tree.
  4. Stamp the leaves with Sepia ink, and the sentiment with black ink.
  5. Edge the card with black marker. Attach the ribbon and bow and mount onto black card, and then glue to card front.
