Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #33

Welcome to Week 1 of Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #33. We have a lovely colour swatch for you to use in your projects. If you haven't played yet, now's the time to do so.

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch, using as much or as little of each colour as you wish. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display the winner's badge on their blog.

Here's my offering for this challenge - a floral birthday card. It turned out more "earthy" than I intended but hopefully, the lovely lotuses (or should the plural form be loti?) stand out against the background.

The focal image is from the Floral Notes A5 stamp sheet and the sentiment is from Words To Dazzle.  First I stamped the image with Ranger Dye Ink Cool Graphite. Then, I masked the flowers before inking the edges with Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw and Antique Linen Distress Inks. For the sentiment, I used VersaFine Crimson Red and finished the project with little drops of Hydrangea Liquid Pearls.

Here's a closer look at the flowers. I coloured them with Caran d'Ache Suprasoft Aquarelle Pencils.

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #33 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 18th April 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 26 April 2017. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thank you for stopping by and have a magical day!
