Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

Good morning my lovelies, well the last month has disappeared in the blink of an eye and its already time for a brand new challenge at Chocolate Baroque Challenge. This month we have a gorgeous colour palette to inspire you:

As always there is a fab prize of  a voucher for Chocolate Baroque goodies for our winner and of course there's the honour of a Top 3 place too. My lovely teamies have lots of inspiration for you so keep popping back to the challenge blog for a look :-)

For my card I used distress inks and Graph'It markers, I used Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac and roughly brayered them in lines on my gelli plate, I added some texture with a sponge and took a print. I overstamped the print with one of my all time favourite back ground stamps from Decadent Brocade stamp sheet and dusted a little black soot distress ink around the edges.

The focal image is from the Summer Fairy Collection, coloured with Graph'It markers and distressed with the same colours of distress inks. I layered the image up on black card, punched a pretty border and decorated with some seam binding ribbon (dyed with the same distress inks). 
To finish off I added some little die cut butterflies and topped the button off with a bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew: black cardstock
Papertake Weekly: anything with wings
Through the Craft room Door: anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy: distressing

Thanks for visiting, have a great day and hope to see you again soon

  1. Such a gorgeous card Claire, I love the background and the way the colours get lighter as you go up the page. I love the fairy on the toadstool also.
