Special offers at Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, oh dear Mr Blogger has not been my friend this week, I haven't been able to add pics as its telling me I'm over my storage limit when I'm not grrrrrrr. I wanted to share some exciting news, Glenda over at Chocolate Baroque always has some fab special offers on new stamps but she has decided to have a special offer on one of the older stamps too! This week's offer is on the Christmas script series of stamps, have a look here as they are gorgeous!

I've coloured the large stamp from Mistletoe Script with Derwent Inktense pencils, adding lots of shadow around the leaves to give them some depth and die cut with nesties before distressing with Iced Spruce distress ink, I really love this colour, its one of my favourite distress colours. The background was made with iced spruce and peeled paint distress inks using the spritz and flick technique, overstamped with the smaller mistletoe stamp. I've added a little silver charm, some white organza ribbon and some tiny faux pearls made with my viva pearl pen.

i'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: ribbon or trim
Crafty Boots: anything goes
Crazy for Challenges: put a bow on it
Our Daily Bread: winter holiday
Papercraft Star: holiday greenery

If you get a minute have a peek at the rest of the stamp in the collection over at Chocolate Baroque.
Thanks for popping by
