Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35 - Final Challenge

Welcome to Week 1 of Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35. Sadly, this will be our final challenge. We have had a wonderful time playing, creating and having fun. But, like all things in life, there comes a time when even good things come to an end. I hope you'll join us in our last show and tell using this colour swatch:

As always, 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 card featuring a stamp from the March Fairy DL stamp sheet. I mirror stamped the image.  To be honest, it turned out better than expected! To prepare the background, embossed a piece of watercolour cardstock with WRMKWhimsy folder and applied Distress inks: Pine Needles and Mowed Lawn. Then I sprinkled some watered down gesso and finished it with droplets of Liquid Pearls: Mint ad Holly.

I did the mirror stamping with VersaFine Black Onyx because the slow drying gave me enough time to position the mirror image. Mememto Tuxedo Black would have dried too fast before I got my act together. When completely dry, I coloured the image with Copics and finished the card with a couple of purple bling.

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #35 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 20th June 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 28 June 2017. I hope you'll play along one last time and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
