Chocolate Baroque: Song Thrush and Arched Landscape

Welcome to a brand new year of  crafty goodness from Chocolate Baroque. You've seen the new January release stamps (Punky Hearts and Fluttering Hearts) and must agree that they are just LOVELY.

Today I want to share with you a couple of cards featuring the new Cling Mounted Individual Stamps which were released when the new Chocolate Baroque website was launched on December 18th. You can see Glenda's original post here.

My first card showcases the beautiful Song Thrush Silhouette stamp. For the background, I stamped the small leaf from Butterfly Dreams A5 sheet with Memento Cantaloupe onto a piece of yellow card stock. The sentiment is also from Butterfly Dreams and is stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue. To finish, I wrapped some sheer green ribbon and tied a bow.

I stamped Song Thrush Silhouette on Strathmore Watercolour Cold Press Paper with VersaFine Black Onyx and coloured it with Windsor and Newton watercolour. Here's a close-up:

The sentiment inside is from the Birthday Words A5 sheet stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue.


My second card shows off the Arched Landscape stamp. I also did some background stamping using the little stamp from the Fleurs Nouveau A5 sheet and Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from the Patchwork Landscape A4 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx. To finish, only some sheer cream ribbon would do.

This time I coloured the image with Graph'It alcohol markers.

On the inside, I created a border using a stamp from Fleurs Nouveau and Tattered Rose Distress Ink.


These are the Cling Mounted Individual Stamps I've used today:
There are a total of 10 new Cling Mounted Individual Stamps, each one a thing of beauty, a work of art. I hope you've been inspired to play with yours and / or to get some more!  

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be seeing you soon!
