Chocolate Baroque "Best Wishes"

Hello to you all, I am back with another sample made from the new stamps that have just been released for July over at Chocolate Baroque. My card uses one of the stamps from 
I first inked up my card with Picked Raspberry and Faded Jeans Distress inks then I sprayed my fragment stamp with water and stamped this onto the inked card. This then removes the ink......
Once this was dry I then stamped the Harebell Butterfly image over the top and coloured in with distress inks.  I inked the edge with Black Soot to add depth then mounted onto white card.

I am also sharing a Christmas card this time using stamps from the newly released  "Turtle Doves stamp sheet". I first of all clear embossed the stamp with black Versafine then using a mask for the moon blended Faded Jeans and Black Soot distress inks for the sky. The hills in the background were made using some torn card and  more fade jeans on some sponge.The tree has been coloured in with Distress inks and the gorgeous sentiment is from the newly released Christmas Magic stamp sheet.xxx

Inspired by Tim Inspiration

Hello to you all I am back with my inspiration project for the challenge
Inspired by Tim
I don't own a lot of Tim's stuff and am inspired more by his grunge but I tend to do pretty grunge.
This is another wooden plaque that I have decorated...I have scrunched up some of Tims tissue wrap and loosely stuck it down leaving plenty of texture when dry gave it a light coat of Gesso..

Once this was dry I sponged on some Chromium Oxide Green Shade PanPastels,I then lightly dabbed a sponnge that had been dipped in Versamark ink pad over the parts that are sticking up and then sponged over some Phthalo Blue Panpastel 

I then got a soft cloth and polished it all. I then put some light modeling paste through my flower stencil and when dry coloured with Magenta. The sentiment was stamped embossed with blue embossing powder and cut up

I then decorated with some burlap.
I do hope you visit the rest of the fab DT makes.

Every Flower

Hello, I am back again, I had planned a day in the garden deadheading and general tidying, I never thought I would admit defeat because of the heat.....So as it was to hot to garden the next best thing to do is craft....
I started this by first gluing Tims tissue onto the card then giving a thin coat of Gesso to mute the colour  after this I distressed the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink the main stamp came next and I coloured the flowers with Picked Raspberry.The roses were stamped and coloured next followed by the sentiment.xxx

And I have decorated a wooden plaque for this one using Acrylic paints for the background and glitter around the edges. Both images have been coloured with distress inks .  The stars are die cuts that I painted and glittered

Inspired by Tim

Hello to you all, I am here today with my post for the challenge over at PanPastel. The theme for this fortnight is
Inspired by Tim
I find Tim a bit grungy which I am not very good at, but this is what Tim has inspired me to do.

I have painted gesso to  the background of of a wooden 6inch x 3inch plaque then when dry covered with Phthalo blue Panpastel . After setting with hairspray I then lightly went over it with some Silver again setting in between layers to stop the colours blending....I dabbed some more Phthalo Blue through Tim's Burlap stencil and stuck down some of Tims tissue wrap with PVA glue ....I stamped the bush image with Black Versafine and clear embossed, I also repeated this for the sentiment.
Next I glued the diamond  cut outs and Tim's Bird and cage dies which I had tried to grunge with some pewter gilding wax.Lastly I added a burlap bow.xxx

A PanPastel Plaque

Hello to you all, I have been having another play with my PanPastels. I have made another wooden plaque..I first painted this with gesso and then black acrylic,when dry stamped up the image with Versamark and sponged over some Silver PanPastel. I then sponged some Versamark through a leaf stencil and again went over with some more PanPastel. The words were given the same treatment and then glued to the plaque. I finally finished this off by giving a couple of coats of watered down PVA glue to protect the surface.xxx
