Gorgeous free download from Chocolate Baroque

Good evening folks, I'm running late as always but I just wanted to give you a heads up as there is a gorgeous free download backing paper to pick up over at the Chocolate Baroque Challenge blog

You can't see if very well as this pic is rubbish but its a gorgeous wood effect paper, I've altered it with a Crafters Workshop stencil and used both watered down Maimeri White gesso and Maimeri Glassy Gel medium to add some texture. The focal images are some old favourites from Chocolate Baroque, the mermaid is from Mermaid Queen and the gorgeous border stamp in the foreground is from Seaside Dreams (as is the sentiment). All the images were stamped on kraft card and coloured with pencils, I didn't do much blending as I wanted a sketchy effect. I've used recycled corrugated card as a background and added some cheesecloth and a few little shells and pearls. I've also added some plaited twine to hang my little wall hanging

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps: lots of layers
Craft your passion: anything goes
Crafting from the heart: anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner: anything goes
Paper Shelter: Recycle
Penny Black and more: stencils, masks etc
