Good morning folks, its time for a new challenge at Chocolate Baroque Challenge and this month we've got a gorgeous colour palette for inspiration. I've had fun with Brushos for my DT project and as always my teamies have created some gorgeous projects. Our random winner (chosen from entries using CB stamps) will receive a £15 voucher to spend on goodies from Chocolate Baroque and there are Top 3 honours up for grabs too.
To make this card I stamped the large flower from Sunny Sunflowers onto watercolour card and masked the image off.
I've used Black, Grey and Lemon brusho powders sprinkled onto watercolour card and then misted with water to create my background. I love all the different tones that you get with Brushos, some of the greys have a greenish hue, soooo pretty!
When I removed the mask some of the paint had leaked through but I kind of liked the shadow effect so I didn't worry too much about it.
Next I stamped the bees which are from Rose Tree with black archival ink. I used a little diluted bleach to remove the brusho colour from the bees an then added some colour with distress markers. I also used my distress markers to colour the sunflower.
I added some glamour dust to the wings using a quickie glue pen.
The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder (the sentiment is from Words of comfort and Cheer).
To finish off I've added some white dots with a Graph'It shake pen and doodled around the edges.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: anything goes plus a sentiment
Corrosive Challenges: Mixed Media
Crafting with an attitude: anything goes
Papertake Weekly: animal magic
