Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge #9

Hi everyone

It’s time for another new Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge.

To see full details of the challenge and this months colors please click HERE.

Here is my little offering for this months challenge.

FloLangleyChallenge 9 025awmA really easy card to make.
I stamped Ophelia, masked her and then stamped the Fountain Scene.
I stamped the butterfly onto a piece of card, colored it, cut it out and attached it with foam pads.
All of the images have been stamped using Archival Ink and colored with water color crayons.

Chocolate Baroque Stamps used: Fountain Scene and the gorgeous Ophelia.
Just to share, Chocolate Baroque are well known for their amazing sets of rubber stamps but these two stamps are from their new “Cling Single” range which can be seen here.

Inspiration for this card came from a couple of trips I made last year with my crazy blogging friend from down under Kylie.  We went to the Alcazabar in Malaga and to the Butterfly Park in Benalmadena which was simply magical.

Card Making with the Spring Bird – Crocus

Hi everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a card made using Chocolate Baroque’s new Spring Bird – Crocus rubber stamps.  Love these stamps.  I think this little bird could be one of my all time favourite stamps.

When I was little I can remember we had a little privet hedge around the garden and every year my Dad would trim the hedge and there would be an old tea pot sitting there, within the branches, that we had placed for the wrens to nest in.  Every year I would clean it out and put it back.  Isn’t it funny how some memories stay with you all your life.

FloLangleySpringBirds 007awmcI used a die for the base card and for the bird cage.
I stamped the little bird image, colored it in and fussy cut around it.
The card is made up as seen with foam pads to attach the image and embellishments.

Card Making with the Crazy Chicks

Hi everyone

Yey! It’s Friday.  Really looking forward to the weekend.

My hens have gone completely bonkers and have all started getting broody.  I was expecting some chicks to hatch out a couple of weeks ago but the mother hen left the eggs and they went cold but now I have two more hens are sitting so looks like we are going to have a ooodles of baby chicks.  Love this time of year.

So, today I would like to share a card I made.  A little bit grungy in style. Very inky but lots of fun to make.

To make this card I colored a piece of white card with Spray Inks and Distress Ink.
I stamped my image and then removed some of the ink, with a damp paint brush and kitchen paper, to create the high lights.
I gave everything a quick spray of fixative to fix the inks and a coat gel medium.
