Patchwork Garden

Hello and welcome to my blog  :)  I'm sharing another of my tv samples for Chocolate Baroque today, featuring their beautiful Patchwork Butterfly stamp set with a sentiment from the Words of Love set.  I have also used Mica powders, black embossing powder, pearl paints, and liquid pearls.

I created the background panel by stamping the silhouette floral panel onto black card with Versamark ink, then I brushed Mica powders over the image.  I fixed the powders with hairspray.  

I cut the panel out leaving a small border of black card.  I then attached it to a white base card.

I stamped a swirl in black ink then embossed it in clear powder.  I added dots with liquid pearls around the swirl.  I then stamped a sentiment onto black card, brushed it with Mica powders, then cut it out leaving a small border again.  I then attached it to the card.

I stamped and embossed a butterfly onto black card, then painted it with pearl paints and cut it out. 

I repeated the process with a second butterfly, then attached both of them to the card.

This is one of my favourite of all my samples for these stamps!  I love using the Mica powders and I think they really showcase the background panel.  The liquid pearls really accentuate the lovely swirl as well.  I'm so pleased with the way this card has turned out, and I think this design would suit a lot of occasions.  
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you've enjoyed this post and you'll come back soon  :)
