Lesley Wharton is on Hochanda tomorrow (Sat 23rd Dec) with FAB pick & mix shows of Chocolate Baroque stamping goodies. Freeview Channel 85 or watch online (12 and 3pm)
Here is a sneaky peek.
Good morning. Here is my first contribution for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge No. 33.
The images were stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold powder. The edges were distressed (using the edge of scissors) and coloured with watercolour ink (picking up colour from my craft mat and applying with a sponge).
The images were quickly coloured with watercolour pens and a damp brush (the embossing powder resists so colouring is really quick and easy).
I love this gorgeous background stamp (Big Bold Backgrounds – Belle Flower). I stamped it with Versamark onto white card and heat embossed the image with pearl green embossing powder. I then over stamped the border (from Harlequin Rose) and sentiment (from Rose Stem Script) and embossed with glittery pink powder. I drew around a large flower die with pink glitter pen to create the sentiment plate. Then coloured the image with watercolour and glitter pens.
Step By Step:
Good morning – well it’s time to get romantic and send a bit of love. This monochrome rose card would be perfect for the guys. It would work for Valentine’s day or for an anniversary. I hope that you like it.
How to make it:
Good morning. I am excited to share one of my samples for Lesley’s first TV shows on Hochanda at the start of the month. Lesley demonstrated several sets of stamps from Chocolate Baroque featuring a romantic theme with gorgeous roses and heartfelt sentiments. Great for creating projects for loved ones, Valentines Day, Weddings and Anniversaries too.
I have used the Big Bold Backgrounds Leafy Trails stamp to create this card and to decorate a small gift box to match. I embellished using the Rose Stem Script stamp and a sentiment from the Words of Love set.
* The gift box is a purse design from Silhouette – I think that it came included with the Silhouette Studio software
How to make:
Stamp the leafy background with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder. Trim stamping card to fit the card blank leaving a small border. Round the corners with a punch or scissors. Edge with the alcohol marker.
Open out the box and lay flat. Mine was cut on the Silhouette Cameo, but you could use a die cut or a ready-made plain box. My box measured approx. 30 X 21 cm when opened out. Stamp and emboss the box sides with the leafy stamp.
Colour the card front and box with sparkle pens. Spray with a coat of sparkle varnish. Glue the background mat to the card front.
Cut a strip of card, stamp the sentiment and small border with teal ink. Trim and edge with alcohol pen. Attach to card front with 3D foam.
Stamp the rose panel in Versamark Ink and emboss with gold powder. Colour with watercolour and sparkle pens (both are water based so can be used together). Cut out the rose and lightly shape. Tie on a ribbon and glue to the card with 3D glue gel.
