Hi there, today's card features some of the stunning new stamps released this month by Chocolate Baroque. When postie delivered these stamps I was blown away as they are fab-u-lous. I adore flower stamps and have loads but as always Glenda has come up with some more 'must have' stamps, you can check them all out here and the new stamps are on offer too so don't miss out. This card was quite a challenge as anyone who knows me will tell you I'm a real bodger and not the neatest stamper so getting this frame right was a bit tricky. It might have helped if I'd been able to find my stamp positioner lol.
I've used the large allium type flower stamps from Fragrant Honeysuckle stamped 4 times to create the corners. I pencilled in a line to give me a guide where to stamp and then just went for it lol. I stamped the images with versamark and embossed with black detail embossing powder. I used a clear ruler and a fineliner pen to create the frame.
The ladybirds are from the same stampsheet. again embossed with black EP and coloured with tinkabella ink and given a coat of glossy accents. The quote is one of my favourites, from Chocolate Baroque's 'Curly Birds' stamp sheet. It all looked a little plain so I masked off the outer frame and lightly spritzed red and black mica spray. I matted the finished artwork on red and black card before attaching to an 8"square card blank.
i'm entering this card in the following challenges
Crafts 4 Eternity: clean and simple
Fussy and Fancy: polkadots (on my ladybirds)
Moving Along with the times: blooming marvellous
My Mum's Craft Shop: flowers
