Chocolate Baroque: Beautiful Butterfly

Hello, friends. Sorry I haven't been around much. Life has been hectic... really really hectic. Haven't had much time to get inky and, as a result, my craft room in a suspended state of disarray!

But I managed to create a quickie: a notecard featuring a gorgeous butterfly from Chocolate Baroque's Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet. It's a simple card, not time-consuming and perfect to accompany a gift for a special person. The finished project measures 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".

I stamped the butterfly on the edge of the card, coloured him with Polychromos and cut around his wing. And every butterfly deserves a garden, so I stencilled one for him using TCW Daisy stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle A5 sheet, stamped with Archival Jet Black. And yes, I've added 3 little blings on his wings.


I continued with the stencilled background on the inside of the card.

Can you believe half the year is over? That's scary. And I can hear the ol' familiar jingle bells not too far away! Eeeeek!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Beijinhos!

ATSM #246: Anything Goes


Hello again and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week the theme is an easy one - Anything Goes. Absolutely no excuse not to play along!

I made a card for a friend's birthday using stamps from Altnew's Dahlia Blossoms sheet. The ink stains in Salty Ocean Distress Ink makes the blossoms pop. I heat embossed the greeting with WOW Gold Rich EP and finished the project with droplets of Mint Liquid Pearls.

Here is a closer look at the dahlias.

Now it's your turn to link up your project for the Anything Goes challenge. You can make anything you like. I looking forward to seeing your projects.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have fun with this challenge.

Beijinhos!

Chocolate Baroque: Bold Butterfly

Good morning, friends. I made a one-layer birthday card. Oh yes, I did! Trust me, I'm surprised myself but stranger things have happened!

I started by heat embossing the largest butterfly from the Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet with WOW Gold Rich EP directly onto the card base.

Next, I worked on the background by blending Distress Inks in shades of green: Crushed OliveMowed LawnPeeled Paint and Pine Needles. Then I sprinkled some watered down Dina Wakley White Gesso to add interest to the background. I also added random blobs of Icicle Stickles for a touch of magic.

And finally, the greeting from Words To Dazzle and Sparkle stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

I added colour to the gold embossed butterfly using Distress Inks: Barn DoorMustard SeedWild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade.
That's all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon!
