Hello there! I'm playing with my Chocolate Baroque products today. Here's another card from me featuring one of the gorgeous new singles released in August: Hanging Flowers Single A6 stamp. What can I say? I just love ... absolutely adore this stamp. It stamps beautifully with clean crisp detailed image and a true joy to colour. It's the kind of image that will work well for all occasions.
I'm allergic to pink. The saccharine sweet hues especially, they make me heave. But for this card, I was drawn to that loathsome colour…and still managed to keep my breakfast down!
The background is fake bokeh and I used the Seasonal Elements Stencil and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, applied directly onto a deep pink card base. Then I inked the edges with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. I added some Lawn Fawn Twine in Orchid to wrap up this project.
I decided to keep the design simple, without any unnecessary distractions. I started by stamping the image with VersaFine Vintage Sepia for a softer more natural look. Then I coloured it with Faber -Castell Polychromos and did a little off the edge framing. The background was too white, so I knocked it back with shades of grey and matted with the teeniest show of lavender card. There's also some Clear Wink of Stella on the flowers.
