Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

Good morning folks, we've got a gorgeous colour palette to inspire you over at Chocolate Baroque Challenge this month, such lovely colours taken from Judith's stunning card. As always there is a £15 voucher for our lucky winner and the DT will be getting their thinking caps on to choose their top 3 too.

Current Challenge

I've used two of the beautiful stamps from Carousel Horses, to create this project. I've used one of the fabulous wooden art blocks, also from Chocolate Baroque which you can find in lots of different sizes here. I began by painting the front and back of the block with white gesso leaving a gap around the edge. Once the gesso was dry I stamped the horses with Black Versafine ink and coloured them with distress markers. 

I applied gold gilding wax lightly around the edges and then piled up lots of bows on the top. I dyed some white seam binding with distress inks to match the challenge colours and layered them up with some glue. To finish off I added some stickles and glamour dust to give the horses a little sparkle.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: R is for ribbon
Colouring in Scrapland: Anything goes
Mixed Media World Challenge: Anything goes with wood
Shopping our Stash: go paperless
Whoopsi Daisy: Hand coloured image
