Today I would like to share a card I made for the Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge. To see full details of the challenge, the wonderful inspirational projects by the DT and all of the entries please click Here.
Here is my little card
I stamped my main image onto white card stock using Black Archival Ink and masked her off.
I created the background using Distress Inks, spritzed with water on an acrylic block.
The circles are made with craft paint and a plastic bottle top.
When I had finished the background and it was dry, I removed the mask and coloured the image with water colour crayons.
If you have any questions please give me a should in the comments box.
I quite like pretty Valentines Cards…probably edging towards a vintage style if I am honest but for this card I wanted something simple in style that may be used for the men folk.
I also wanted to use cut out shapes on this card but not ones that have been cut out on a die cutting machine. The machines are great but not everyone has one.
Apologies for the shadows on this photograph. I did um and are whether to change it but I think it shows the depth a little better with them in.
I stamped my heart and fussy cut around it.
I ran the blade of a craft knife just around the edge of the heart, not to distress it, but to just curl it over.
I then cut two panels, one in white card and one in pretty paper as seen above.
I cut a half circle shape in each piece just large enough for the heart to fit in.
I then made up the card as seen attaching the pieces with foam tabs and adding a bit of bling to the bottom left hand corner to balance the flowers at the top.

Here is my little offering
I started this card by making a background (as seen below) and I was going to layer it up but I quite liked the background and wanted to show more of it on the card so I cut a little aperture and placed my stamped focal piece behind it.
For the insert I stamped the gentle man and colored him with Distress Ink. To bring it all together I stamped the wording around the edges.
This is a copy of the stamped background for information only. Please do not copy it or reproduce it electronically. Chocolate Baroque Angel Policy can be seen here.
For my background piece I used one of my own Time 8 background papers and painted it, using craft paint, yellow and green as seen. You can just see some of the “Time” words and the figure “8” under the paint.
I then stamped the clocks with paint to give a very faint impression and stamped the script using ink and just part of the script stamp from this set.
To finish off I used a stencil and paint to make the fancy chicken wire pattern.
The card was made up as seen with the addition of the ink and quill pen die cut which I attached using foam pads.
