This 6 X 6 inch card was created with the Fantasy Woodland along with the verse from the Tall Trees stamp sets. Images were stamped with Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink. Colouring was really quick and easy using watercolour brush pens. A small ‘dab’ of colour was quickly laid down onto the darker areas of the image, indicated by the stamp detail. A damp brush was then used to draw out the colour giving shading and tonal variation, really quick and easy. The edge of the stamping card was inked with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and the roughed up using the edge of my scissors. PVA pearls and faux stitching was added. I then added Glossy Accents over the apples for added shine. Just about achievable in 15 mins x.
Water based sparkle pens (red, gold, purple, green)
Gelato stick (Lemon)
Glitter glue (gold)
Shaped die for sentiment topper
How it was done:
The edge was stamped directly onto the card front with Versamark and heat embossed with gold sparkle powder. Coloured with sparkle pens. The yellow Gelato was dissolved in water and painted around the border.
The topper was stamped with Versafine and blended with Distress Inks. Glued to the card with 3D gel for added depth. Finished with a little glitter glue.
Good morning. Today I am sharing a quick and easy card using stamps from the Tall Trees and Words of Wisdom stamp sets. The background was created by spritzing and splattering with lime green and bright pink ink sprays. I then quickly stamped the trees with lime and dark green ink. The sentiments were stamped in dark green ink. I used green alcohol marker to frame the image before gluing to the card and added faux stitching with a fine tipped pen. I finished with the obligatory PVA pearls and clear glitter glue for sparkle (I just cannot help myself – tee hee).
Lightly spritz and splatter the background with lime green and bright pink ink sprays.
Quickly stamp some of the trees by picking up lime ink from your craft mat. Repeat stamp some without re-inking. Lightly spritz the stamp with water and stamp again to give some lovely splodged images and a watercolour effect. Repeat with the dark green ink.
Stamp the sentiments with dark green ink.
Use the alcohol marker to frame the image before gluing to the card and added faux stitching with a fine tipped pen.
Finish with PVA pearls and clear glitter glue for sparkle.
Good morning. For my texture project today I have made 2 variations of a butterfly scene card.
I have used ink spritzing and stamping with texture stamps to create interesting backgrounds. I have used the large gem slice stamp and heat embossing with sparkling pink powder to add a colourful textured foreground for my scene. The butterflies were also stamped and embossed, then coloured and cut out.
Both scenes were created in the same way but I took one of them a step further by mounting on a larger card with a textured embossing powder border (using heat resistant tape to adhere the powder before heating), die cut foliage and floral gems, finishing with another of the lovely stamped butterflies. Of course I just had to add PVA pearls and glitter in there too.
We have all had so much fun creating with this month’s theme of texture.
The gorgeous stamps from Chocolate Baroque are so versatile and can be used in so many different ways, from complex mixed media pieces to really quick and simple cards. This month we have been asked to create some quick projects which take under 15 minutes to make.
Here are some quick scene projects for you using the Tall Trees stamp set. This set is on a special offer at the moment.
Do have a look at the Chocolate Baroque Blog to see some more quick and easy projects from my lovely Teamies this week.
Glitter glues (turquoise and purple) and PVA pearls (turquoise)
Watercolour brush and spritzer bottle
The cards and tag were stamped using Distress Inks. To create the quick scene on the white card I stamped the tree three times without re-inking the stamp. On the purple card and tag I lightly spritzed the paper with water and used a brush to drag out and spread the ink and gift a softer diffuse effect. I used the purple marker to outline the card, tag and topper – just to give it a frame. They were finished with the stamped sentiment, glitter glues and PVA pearls. Really quick and easy.
Good morning. Have you seen this month’s lovely new digital paper download on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog? The gorgeous Shabby Paint background. I immediately saw mountains and water so decided to create a scene with mine.
Printed the paper onto A4 and trimmed to 19.5cm to mat onto the card base. Outlined with brown marker and blended Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs) in around the edges.
Stamped the castle onto white card. Extended the rocks by drawing with a fine marker. Coloured with watercolour pens and Distress Inks using a wet brush. Cut out to layer onto the background.
Stamped the castle onto acetate with Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs), then transferred the ink onto the background paper to create a mirror image reflection. Then glued down the stamped and coloured castle image over the top.
Used the fine tipped marker to draw in further details to the scene – creating the mountains and foreground. Stamped the clouds with Memento Ink.
Stamped the tree with Versamark and heat embossed with the Olive powder. Further coloured the image with watercolour pens and Distress Inks.
Finished with some glitter on the mountain tops, Glossy Accents on the castle domes, and PVA pearls.
Good morning. Today I am sharing a stamped and coloured T shirt top using the gorgeous Flowerhead stamps from Chocolate Baroque, and Spectrum Noir alcohol ink pens to colour. I have entered my project into the Spectrum Noir Facebook Challenge for January 2016. I just love using my Spectrum Noir to colour fabric.
I had ruined this top while cooking a curry and couldn’t get rid of tiny yellow stains splashed across the front. Now you would never know that they are there.
I hope that you like this fun project. We need some summery florals to brighten up these darker winter days.
Wash and dry the item thoroughly and do not use conditioner.
Place some scrap paper under the shirt to absorb any ink that may bleed through. Stamp the Flowerheads with black ink and the leaves in blue ink.
Colour the images with alcohol ink pens. Note: it is not possible to get controlled colouring and blending as the ink instantly sucks into the fabric. I used absorbent cartridge paper underneath to take up the excess ink (keep the stained paper to create backgrounds on your cards – it looks quite pretty). I used the lighter more transparent colours for the main colour fill (so as not to obscure the stamp detail), then added accent shading with the darker colours.
Leave overnight for the inks to ‘set’ into the fabric. Iron fix with a dry iron (at the hottest setting that your fabric will tolerate) to make the images and colouring permanent and washable.
