This is my final post for this month showing samples from April's shows for Chocolate Baroque, for my first creation I am using stamp sets Dream Petals and Butterfly Mind. So I started with a background, using Distress Oxides and stencil brushes gently built colour up in green and blue, I kept it soft and subtle. On some separate card I stamped out the flowers from the Dream Petals and cut them out. I always cut out first and colour afterwards as if using water colours the card doesn't cut as crisp when damp. I coloured with distress inks and when dry used a white gel pen to highlight in the centre of the flowers. I adhered them to the bottom of the card overlapping them.
I then stamped two butterflies and cut them out, I coloured them the same way and put them on as if fluttering above the flowers. Finally added a sentiment.
For this creation I used the stamp set Life Is Wonderful with a sentiment from Birthday Words. I started with the background, I used Cadence Metallic Acrylic paints found here, I sponged them in two different colours all over and left to dry. Meanwhile I stamped my image twice, and coloured the main one with Aqua pencils, I then cut out parts of the image, the butterfly and the biggest flower then coloured them. I decoupaged the the cut out pieces. and adde3d some glitter to the centre of the flowers and the butterfly wings.
I will be back with new posts next month, thank you for looking.
