Chocolate Baroque: Krafty Kingfisher

Hello, friends! I'm back with another project idea. This time I'm going for an intensely vintage look using an image from the Kingfisher Song A5 stamp sheet by Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the kingfisher onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink and coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos. For that aged look, I applied Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo all around the edge of the card. Finally, some Stardust Stickles and little white dots on the water to brighten things up.

The bird was joy to colour. I could not resist adding a little shimmer to his feathers with the Clear Wink of Stella. His eye is a black bling. There's a hint of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink in the sky and I added the puffy clouds with white Polychromo pencil.
Challenges:

Hello again, friends! Time for another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week the theme is my favourite - Holiday.

I made a Chinese New Year card using the Lunar Lights stamps by Lawn Fawn. The year of the Rooster started on January 28th, 2017.  I paper pieced the lanterns. To stamp the glow of the lanterns I used Delicata Gold ink.

I heat embossed the greeting with WOW Rich Gold EP and finished the card with a few tiny gold bling.

Make My Monday #39: Shimmer and Shine
Scrapbook Stamp Society #109: AG + Option Red

MHKD February Release: Glory Of The Lord

Today we have this floral beauty called Glory Of The Lord.


I wanted to keep this card as CAS as possible... which for me is not easy. The urge to fuss and fiddle is too great, but I persevered and produced this:

I coloured the morning glory with Copics, added some Stardust Stickles, a few sequins and finished the card with sheer green ribbon. Suddenly, it doesn't sound so CAS, does it?!

Chocolate Baroque: Heartfelt Thanks

Good morning, friends! I've been playing with 2 new A6 stamp sheets by Chocolate Baroque called Baroque Meadow and Words To Dazzle and Sparkle.

These new stamps were introduced on Hochanda last week and are exclusive for purchase through Hochanda for a few more days but they'll soon be available at Chocolate Baroque online store.

I made a thank you card featuring the images from Baroque Meadow and a sentiment from Words To Dazzle and Sparkle.

As started by masking off the moon with a circle die-cut before inking up the background with Distress Inks: Chipped Sapphire, Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo. Instead of stamping the silhouette image in black as I usually do, I went with Archival Ink Olive to contrast the moody background.

And to brighten the scene, I added white and glossy accent dots. I love the detail on the grassy silhouette image and it's so versatile too.
Challenges:
HeARTful Stamping Feb 5: For Someone Special + Rubber Stamp
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends #51: AG
Gem Of A Challenge #187: Add A Butterfly

That's all from me today. The weather is being extremely uncooperative lately. There's some sort of storm brewing in the high seas and it's bringing frightfully HUGE waves. Last week it was a battle with ice and hailstorm. What surprise awaits us next week, I wonder! Stay safe and warm, friends!

Beijinhos!
