Before I post my latest project I would like to welcome my latest follower Barb, who I met for the first time a few months ago at a craft workshop. I think it is lovely to make new friends and feel part of a community through crafting. Welcome Barb!
Now for my first post in 2017.
Recently I saw some lovely stamps from Chocolate Baroque on Hochanda TV and it motivated me to dig out my stash of stamps from this lovely company.
The main image is from the Fragrant Honeysuckle set which is still available on the Chocolate Baroque website. I have stamped on white cardstock using a grey ink pad, Memento London Fog. I wanted to keep the outline subtle as I didn't want too much of a stark contrast with the colours I had chosen. I started with alchohol markers but when I had finished colouring I wasn't really happy with the blending or contrast of colours that I had achieved so I used my Spectrum Noir pencils to add more depth of colour.
The card is finished by layering with dark blue card, some co-ordinating backing paper and a bit of lace and ribbon and few adhesive pearls.
I hope you like it.
Bye for now
