Hi and welcome to my blog :) Today I have one of my Chocolate Baroque samples from the floral shows last month to share with you today. I have used the lovely Bird of Joy stamp, the Useful Leaves stencil, and alcohol pens.
I began this project with a piece of white stamping card and stamped the bird and word images using grey Versafine ink. I then coloured the image with alcohol pens. I used colours that are similar to a Peacock.
I coloured the flowers in a coordinating colour, and I added a shadow line around both the bird and words in a pale colour.
I added some foliage by stencilling leaves around the focal image using Distress Inks.
I blended some Distress Ink around the edges of the panel and matted it onto black card. I stamped a swirl image from the Patchwork Butterfly stamp set in opposite corners of a white base card, then blended the ink around the edges as before. I then attached the focal panel to the base card.
I love this card, I always feel that the combination of blue, yellow and green is so cheerful and fresh. This card would suit a whole range of occasions and any recipient.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog, I hope you've enjoyed this post and that you'll come back again soon :)
