All of a Flutter from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, todays card features this month's new release stamps from  Chocolate Baroque which are perfect for getting ahead with those Valentine projects. This card uses stamps from Fluttering Hearts with one of the borders from Poppy Edges which co-ordinates beautifully with the new stamps.

I began by stamping the floral edge stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of stamping card. I took a larger piece of card and stamped both the large and small bird/heart stamps, again with Memento Ink. I used Graph'It markers to colour the images before cutting out the floral edge.

I took a cloud template that I'd cut from some scrap card and used PanPastels to create a cloudy effect in the background. PanPastels are perfect for this as if you go over the image you can use a pencil eraser to remove the colour. I layered the floral edge over the little scene with 3d foam and used a layer of white and then pink card to mat the scene. Lastly I stamped the sentiment with black ink.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Colours: white, flowers plus a sentiment
My Craft Creations: anything goes
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, 
Claire xx
