Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

Good morning my lovelies, how's your week going? We're half way to the weekend  and its a long weekend off work to look forward to :-)  Its an exciting day today as its the start of our second challenge at Chocolate Baroque Challenge blog, do pop over to the challenge blog and check out the colour swatch for inspiration and also have a look at the fabulous projects from my lovely talented teamies. There's a fab prize for our lucky winner too so remember you've got to be in it to win it lol.

My camera has really changed the colours on this card, I've actually used Brushed Corduroy distress ink but it looks really bright green lol. Anyway I began by making a distress ink background using Stormy Sky, Brushed Corduory and a little Wild Honey distress ink. I stamped the flourish from Decadent Brocade  with versamark and embossed with distress EP, this is my absolute favourite flourish, its so pretty its a real shame to cover it up with anything.

I just love this butterfly, its from Patchwork Butterfly . I embossed with WOW black EP and coloured with Inktense pencils before cutting out and layering up with silicone glue.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: anything goes/up up and away
Clear it out: anything goes
Sweet Stamps: Anything goes

I hope you're enjoying the new challenge as much as we are, its a fab excuse to have a play with some of the old favourite from your Chocolate Baroque collection (not that we need an excuse lol)
Thanks so much for visiting today, have a great day
