Stamping is my first love and I couldn't resist these lovely stamps from Chocolate Baroque when I saw them a couple of years ago.
I have stamped the background image with black Versafine ink and then cut a square from the centre. This inner square has been coloured using a combination of watercolour paints and pencils and placed on a slightly larger mat of black card, then positioned over the original stamped image which I have left as black and white.
I have stamped and cut out the words and a honey bee that has been coloured and a bit of sparkle added to the wings, although I don't think this shows up very well in the photo. These additional pieces have been mounted on to the card using foam pads. Finally I've mounted the whole thing on to another mat of black card.
All the stamps used are from Chocolate Baroque and are called 'Big Bold Background Belle Flowers Single' and 'Honey Bee.'
