Moonlit Waterfall from Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, today's card share features some more of the scrumptious new clear stamps from  Chocolate Baroque, this time I've used the focal image from 'Moonlit Waterfall' which I've coloured with distress markers.

I stamped and embossed the main image with WOW Gold detail EP black card and cut out the frame, layering it up over the image with 3d foam for some depth. I didn't think this beautiful little scene needed a lot of embellishments so I created a background using the delicate dragonfly silhouette stamps from the same stamp sheet. I stamped the dragonflies with versamark and again embossed with gold EP. To finish off I've added some gold braid and a glossy black button from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Art with no Boundaries: anything goes +Asian inspired
Delicious Doodles: Harvest Moon
Gingerloft: embossing

Thanks for popping by today

  2. This is a gorgeous stamped scene Claire. The first thing I noticed was the lovely frame. Very effective and makes the whole card very elegant.Your stamped dragonfly background is fab.

  3. Very striking - especially the way the navy draws the eye towards the deep blue of the waterfall. The colouring is terrific & there's such light on that water that you can imagine it glistening. Love the bead & thread embellishing & your perfect positioning of those dragonflies for the background pattern (not easy I know). The stone escarpment has me thinking of the bus route through the Beacons to Cardiff where there are very similar cascades of water (this just looks so touchably real).
