Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge starting over at Chocolate Baroque Challenge and as always we've got a gorgeous colour palette to inspire us, a fab prize for our lucky winner and lots of inspiration from my lovely teamies too!

I've made a steampunk inspired tag using the challenge colour palette and some of my favourite Chocolate Baroque stamps.

I began with a tag and mopped up lots of  Lucky Shamrock Green Starburst Stain. This wasn't so lucky for me as I managed to spill the pot all over my craftroom lol. I stamped the sentiment from Artistic Affirmations and the lacy border which is from Lace Fragments with versamark ink and embossed with a WOW sparkly copper EP. I also swiped around the tag very roughly with Copper metallic paint and a credit card, adding a little copper EP and heating for some texture. The gorgeous butterfly is from Steampunk Butterfly, again embossed with Copper EP but this time on acetate. I cut it out and coloured the back with green and turquoise alcohol inks. I've added a little ribbon and a brad to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers: add some texture
Daring Cardmakers: mirror mirror (shiny/reflective)
My time to craft: anything but a card
Penny Black and More: use your stamps
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Favourite tool (heat gun)
Try it on Tuesday: Let's get messy

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
