Blue Sky at Chocolate Baroque

Good morning, its back to work for me this morning but hopefully we'll have a nice quiet day and with any luck I'll be finishing at 3ish. Before I brave the gales and go earn some pennies, I just wanted to share a card made with the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, there are two sets of stamps in the new release, Tranquillity and Serenity  and I've used stamps from both sets for this card (you can find them here).

I stamped the images and added the Heron from Oriental Crane and coloured them with Graph'It markers. I used PanPastels to create the background and stamped the two little birds. I've distressed the edges with Broken China distress ink.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: anything goes
Divas by Design: anything goes
Emergency Crafters: anything but Christmas
Loves Rubber Stamps: anything goes

I'm off to work now, hopefully time will whizz by and I'll be home nice and early for an evening with my feet up on the sofa eating those Christmas chocs, aaahhhhhh bliss!
thanks for visiting today,

  1. I love the way you used the crane to add to the sense of peace in this for you can just imagine the Tranquility meditating creating such calmness that even the crane is unruffled. I also like the fact that you altered the crane stamp by removing the moon so as to fit it into this scenario. The blue birds are a lovely interesting addition to the cloudy sky. The colouring of the water enhances the stamped ripples beautifully & adds depth to the sense of movement.
