Chocolate Baroque: Love In Full Bloom

Happy Valentine's Day! On this day dedicated to love I want to show you what I've done with the new Crackling Rose individual cling mounted stamp. I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black and coloured it with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils. There's more good stuff by the over at the Chocolate Baroque DT Blog.

I trimmed the image, did some fussy cutting and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink before mounting it to the stencilled background. To created the wall, I used Tim Holtz Bricked stencil and inked t up with Fossilised Amber and Scattered Straw Distress Inks. To finish the card, I tied a bow with some sheer cream ribbon for a soft, feminine look.

To colour the image, I used the following colours:
Blooming Rose
117 Light Cadmium Red; 118 Scarlet Red; 121 Pale Geranium Lake; 219 Deep Scarlet Red; 223 Deep Red; 126 Permanent Carmine; 142 Madder; 191 Pompeian Red; 193 Burnt Carmine; 194 Red-Violet.

Rose Buds
192 Indian Red; 142 Madder; 226 Alizarin Crimson; 127 Pink Carmine; 128 Light Purple Pink; 129 Pink Madder Lake; 134 Crimson

Leaves
266 Permanent Green; 167 Permanent Green Olive; 267 Pine Green; 278 Chrome Oxide Green; 165 Juniper Green; 170 May Green; 173 Olive Green Yellowish 174 Chromium Green Opaque; 158 Deep Cobalt Green; 112 Leaf Green
