You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you keep to the colours from the colour swatch. 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 winner's badge on their blog.
I used these colours to make a card for an amazing young lady who lost her mother, my friend , to cancer a couple of months go. It was so sudden - from diagnosis to funeral in under 3 months. She was an outstanding Christian, loving wife, adoring mother of 6 and a caring friend to many. Not fair... not fair at all!
I've used Distress Inks to create a watercolour image. The background is mostly Faded Jeans with a little Seedless Preserves around the edges. It ended up darker than I intended but there is still that painterly effect I was after. The image is from Pretty Birdcage A5 sheet and the sentiment is from Pretty Poppies A5 sheet, both stamped with VersaFine Smokey Grey. To wrap up the project - 3 purple bling.
Here's a close-up. I masked and stamped the image several times to create a fuller image. For the open flowers I used Seedless Preserves, a touch of Picked Raspberry and Dusty Concord. The leaves and buds got a wash of Cracked Pistachio. For some texture, I applied a blob of Glossy Accents to the centre of each flower.
I've used this image before on a card.... a completely different look. Here's the LINK to that post.

It's exactly 4 weeks today without Rosie. Not that fast when you're counting each day. Here's photo of Rosie and Peanut lost in sisterly slothfulness. Modesty is an alien concept for my girls... but for the joy they bring me I'll turn a blind eye. Thank you for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
