Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #4

Ooooh! I'm bad!

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!)   

The focal image is from the 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.

On the inside, I stamped a stalk from from the Wild Meadow A4 sheet with TH Wild Honey and Bundled Sage.

A few challenges for this card:

Crafty Girls Challenge #29: Anything Goes
Addicted To Stamps #117: Make Your Mark - water colouring with distress inks
Word Art Wednesday #154: Anything Goes Inspirational
Inspiration Destination #3: Anything Goes
Frilly and Funkie: Autumn Colours
Stamplorations October: Stamps & Embossing

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 18th November 2014, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 26th November 2014. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. Are you game?
