Fabulous Flappers from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, its a bank holiday here in the UK today so yipppeeee Monday off work! I'm planning a nice walk with my lovely fur babies and a few hours playing in my craft room, much better than work any day. Today's card features this months new release stamps, Fabulous Flappers from Chocolate Baroque. I just love these elegant ladies, the are lovely to colour.


The first background is made with distress inks in shades of green and my ink blending mat, spritzed with water and then mopped up with white card. The next layer was made using Fancy Flourish stamps with shades of Green Memento ink.

The flapper, vase and flowers (all from the sampe set) have been stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Graph'It Markers. I stamped some of the flowers around the edge and distressed with some green ink. I added some stickles to the centre of the flowers and layered up over a spellbinders border die cut. I've used Tea Dye distress ink to tone the card I used for matting with the image.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine: flowers
CRAFT: make your own embellishment
Crafting at the weekend: anything goes
Die Cut Divas: at least one embellishment

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon

  6. I love the way you have used the vertical lines to accent the trims & wrap of her dress in orange, the soft floral stamped edging echoes not only the flowers of her dress but that sprig emanating from the 'urn'. Your grounding of her is lovely & I just love that Memento Fancy Flourishes background. A thoroughly interesting layout.
