New Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, have you made a start on those Christmas projects yet? Glenda has some gorgeous new stamps this month at Chocolate Baroque to help you feel that festive vibe lol. This project features one of the gorgeous images from Gothic Angels, combined with some old favourite stamps from Terrific treescapes and Home Sweet Home.

I began with a little wooden  plaque coated with white gesso, I inked in the sky with distress inks, masking the moon and then splashed some water and swooshed it around a little before blotting to create the clouds. I stamped in the cottage and added some shadows with weathered wood distress ink, added the trees and then drew in the hills with a fineliner pen. The sentiment is stamped with versamark and embossed with WOW gold embossing powder. I stamped the angel on some smooth white card, coloured her with Graph'It markers and added some glitter. I popped her up on some silicone glue to give the impression of the angel watching over the little cottage.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Created with Love: anything goes
Fashionista: Christmas
Happy Campers: use a stamp
Hobby house: Christmas
Make my Monday: anything but a card

Thanks so much for calling by, have a great day and i'll see you soon

  1. Just love the way you used different stamp sets to creat this & the really effecive way that the angel is 'presiding' over the season. It gives a real sense of security & what Christmas means.....
