Gilding Wax (Pebeo Empire Gold) and PVA pearls (Cosmic Shimmer Dark Bronze)
Textured velvet ribbon (brown),
How it was done:
Soft Form Relief Paste was spread over the stamp and left to dry overnight before peeling away. Extra colour was added with glaze pens and gilding wax.
The card blank was repeat stamped with the paisley background and rainbow ink. Alcohol marker was used to emphasise the edges. Textured ribbon was glued down to create a border.
The cartridge paper was stamped using Versafine and trimmed to fit the card front. The edges were distressed and curled using scissors then coloured with alcohol marker. The paper was then spritzed with inks before gluing to the card front.
The embellishment was glued to the card front with 3D glue gel for added depth. Finished with PVA pearls.
My second project is a bright and cheery elephant scene. You know how I love colour and bling. I had a lot of fun with this one.
Soft Form Relief Paste was spread over the stamps and left to dry overnight before peeling away. Extra colour was added using pink and gold metallic plus black paints. Glitter glue and PVA pearls were added for extra bling (you know me!).
Watercolour card was spritzed with water and coloured by dropping on pigment powders. Images were stamped with Versafine (third generation stamping was used to faintly stamp the buildings in the background). The flowers were coloured with metallic pen (taking care not to obliterate the stamp detail – the ink was very opaque).
The card was edged with Versamark and embossed with sparkly powder (Yay, more bling).
The embellishments were glued to the card front with 3D glue gel for added depth. Yellow puff paint was applied to the foreground and heated to puff up and add texture.
I hope that you like my latest projects. This will be my last regular post for Chocolate Baroque for a while. I have been working with this wonderful Design Team for over 3 years now and I am very sad to be leaving. Nothing to worry about, I just have to give extra priority to other things at the moment. However, you will still see the odd post from me in the guest blogger spot and in the Facebook Group. I simply cannot tear myself away completely.
Thank you all for your support and lovely feedback over the years. Big huggles, Anne xxxx.
Good morning. I have created a couple of very quick and easy makes using Indian themed stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque.
My first project was created using Indian Textiles and Paisley Elephant stamp sets, directly stamping onto a matte (absorbent) red scalloped card blank (12.5cm square). The border and sentiment were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with detail gold powder. A little colour was added with dark pink sparkle pen and purple glitter glue.
The background motifs were also stamped with Versamark and then a little mica powder (Jacquard Interference Red) brushed over using a soft make up brush.
The border was stamped directly onto the card blank (15 X 10 cm) using black StazOn Ink (note: I used StazOn as my card blank had a shiny coating – many other inks don’t dry properly on this surface).
The paisley motifs were stamped onto a black card panel using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Mica Boss powder. This created a tacky finish on which gilding flakes were applied (special glue formulated to use with flakes could be used instead). Finished with little black sequins.
Ribbon (gold), mixed beads and small metal bell, faux gems (green round, clear, blue and pink drops)
Fevicryl gem glue and 3D glue gel
How it was done:
The heart was painted with pink metallic paints and edged with gilding wax. The script was stamped onto the background with StazOn and gold metallic paint.
Relief Paste was applied to the large background stamp and left to dry overnight. A little StazOn Ink was applied over the surface, along with gilding wax, to emphasise the texture. This was glued to the heart.
The peacock and sentiment were stamped with Versafine onto stamping card, coloured with sparkle pens and cut out. The sentiment was edged with black ink and attached with 3D glue gel.
The peacock was stamped onto acetate with Versamark and heat embossed with multiple colours of powder. A little colour was applied to the back with alcohol pens. The peacock was cut out and layered up, applied to the heart with 3D glue gel.
Gems were glued down with fast grab strong PVA glue.
