Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #31

Welcome to Week 3 of Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #31. We have a pretty colour swatch for you to use in your projects. If you haven't played yet, now's the time to do so.

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch, using as much or as little of each colour as you wish. 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 the winner's badge on their blog.

Since it's February, why not start the month with a sweet, romantic card. Inspired by the watercolour background in the colour swatch, I created a card featuring the rose and sentiment from the Rose Stem Script A6 stamp sheet. I heat embossed the Big Bold Leafy Background using WOW Brilliant White EP directly onto an A2 card. Then I inked it up with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.

I inked up a piece of watercolour paper with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Inks, sprinkled some water and dabbed off the excess. Then I stamped the rose script image using Ranger Cool Graphite Dye Ink. I stamped another set of leaves with Ranger Olive Archival Ink and the flower in Ranger Raspberry Sorbet Dye Ink on watercolour paper, and used Distress Inks to colour them. Then I fussy cut the leaves and the flower before adhering them to the main image. To finish the card, a few sequins and blobs of Ranger Glossy Accent.

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #31 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 14th February 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 22nd February 2017. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.
