Completely forgot to publish this scheduled post.... it should have gone out yesterday. Maybe it's this awful weather we're having ... or maybe I'm consumed by guilt for having polished the last slice of cheese cake and for shamelessly licking the plate. Whatever the reason, I plain forgot to get this card out and to entice you into playing along with Chocolate Baroque's brand new Colour Challenge #4.
I hope it's not too late! The colours are gorgeous and the DT makes nothing short of spectacular! Here's my humble offering:
For the background I stamped the floral stamp form the Texture Fragments A4 sheet with TH Black Soot and heat set it with Stampendous Clear EP. Then I inked the background with TH Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey and Aged Mahogany. On the 4 corners I attached 4 pink brads. To finish, a sheer bow in dark red. (Can't go wrong with a big fat bow!)
Butterfly Dreams A4 sheet, stamped with Versafine Black Onyx onto watercolour paper. I coloured the image with TH Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey using a Sakura Koi WaterBrush #2. With a white gel pen I went over the stalks for an added pop of white.
Wild Meadow A4 sheet with TH Wild Honey and Bundled Sage.
A few challenges for this card:

Thank you so much for stopping buy. I'll try an get myself more organised but with just one more day left in the week, I had better get my skates on! See ya in blogland, friends!
