Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

Good morning folks, we've got a gorgeous colour palette to inspire you over at Chocolate Baroque Challenge blog and today I'm sharing the project I've made for inspiration.

The colour swatch is gorgeous and I thought it was a great excuse to use one of the beautiful new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this lovely lady is called Summer Fair and she's gorgeous some beautiful sisters too , you can get the full set here.

I've used an Oval Basewood Plaque for the base of my project. After a coat of white gesso I created a crackle effect background by applying a coat of red acrylic paint, once that was dry I brushed on PVA glue and then a layer of cream paint. Once that was dry I applied a mixture of Maimeri Iridescent Paste and Gold acrylic paint through a stencil and again left it to dry. 

I coloured the focal image with Graph'It markers and cut her out before attaching her to the base. I've added raffia, dried flowers and a gingham bow topped with a paper poppy to finish off

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Country View Crafts: Hot summer days
Crafty Awesomeness: Anything goes with a coloured image
Pile it on: Make your own background
Really Reasonable Ribbon: anything but a card with ribbon/trim

Thanks so much for visiting today
