Chocolate Baroque: Gilded Ornament

Hello, friends! Happy Monday! Chocolate Baroque has released 6 brand new cling mounted individual rubber stamps called Baroque Ornaments. They are absolutely gorgeous... seriously! You can do so much with these delicate and intricate stamp designs ... and you have 6 to choose from.

I've got an easy card project to share with you, featuring the Palm Fan Silhouette Baroque Ornament stamp. This card is a luxurious blend of spice and gold and full of eastern promise. Think Arabian Nights and heady scents of Moroccan souks.

I prepared the background with a blend of Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Fossilised Amber, a touch of Dusty Concord and a hint of Seedless Preserves.

Next I worked on the focal images. I stamped the ornaments on a card the same size as the background and heat embossed it with WOW Rich Gold EP. Then I coloured it with Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany in the middle and blending out with Carved Pumpkin. For contrast I inked the outer edges with Chipped Sapphire.

After fussy cutting the ornaments in one piece, I adhered it over the prepared card base with foam tape, exposing the inky background.

The greeting is from Loving Sentiments A5 stamp sheet, stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue.

Here's a closer look at the ornament. Gorgeous design and with clear, crisp lines. A joy to emboss too!
