Good morning. Today I am sharing another quick make using the Spring Bird Crocus and Breath of Spring stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque. I love creating these monochrome scenes. Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink is the perfect colour, giving the effect of blue & white pottery.
I used fancy edged circle dies to cut the stamping plate and background, but plain circles would work well too. I stamped the image with Distress ink and dragged out the colour using a damp brush. Extra colour was added by picking up more ink from a craft mat and a watercolour brush. The corners were stamped directly onto the card front. I added a coat of Spray & Shine to the topper to give it a ‘pottery tile’ finish.
Cut the frame and square mats for layering. Edge with Distress ink and add faux stitching with the fine tipped pen.
Stamp the image and sentiment with Distress Ink. Pull out the colour using a damp brush. Add some ink to a craft mat and use as a paint to add extra colour and shading. Use the white gel pen to add back some highlights if needed.
Mat and layer onto the card front using 3D foam on the topper for extra depth.
Good morning. Here is a sneak peek of some of my show samples using the lovely Spring themed stamps from Chocolate Baroque featuring on Hochanda today. I will be blogging more details and tutorials over the next month xxx.
