Foxy Bees

Hello, this is my final post for this month for Chocolate Baroque, and I have decided to use one my favourite stamp sets Honey Bees.  So I started by laying down some subtle colour in blue and green for the background.  I stamped the foxgloves at various heights, and coloured with watercolour pencils. I did some highlighting with a gel pen, I added my bees colouring in the same way.  I added glitter to the wings and a sentiment.
Finally I did dots with a glue pen in and around the foxgloves and added some fine glitter.

Metallic Rose

Hello I'm back with another post for Chocolate Baroque showing you another fantastic stamp set, this time I have used Harlequin Rose.  This was one of the first stamps I bought from Chocolate Baroque and absolutely love it.  I love yellow roses, so went with that colour for this, I started with smooching DI squeezed lemonade over the image, then coloured the image and built up with various shades for depth.  I splattered with white and gold Posca pens.  I layered it onto a background I made with metallic paints from Chocolate Baroque, I just did a thin wash then sponged on thicker paint in three colours.
I love the effect of the paints and need to get them out more often.

Thistle Butterfly


This is my first post for February for Chocolate Baroque, and I have picked one of my Favourite stamp sets Thistle Butterfly.  So I went for a layered up look on this one, I started by stamping the image onto a light smooching of Distress Oxides.  I coloured the image with Distress Inks and decoupaged the Butterflies, and around the edge I used some gilding wax.
I did three more layers Gilding each one around the edge after smooching with Oxide inks.  The final layer I stamped with Distress Ink in my all time favourite colour, Seedless Preserves using the Large Crackle Background.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Creative Knockouts - #438 - Lots Of Layers
2. Crafts Galore Encore - #96 - Anything Goes
3. Creations In Pink - #42 - Anything Goes In Pink

I will be back later in the month with another Chocolate Baroque creation made for you to see.
Happy crafting
