Finally I managed an entry for the 12th Chocolate Baroque Blog Challenge! I can't believe it's a year since their fabulous challenges began and I'm a bit disappointed not to have managed to make many entries but at least I made the first and the last (with one in between I think).
This is a one layer card (apart from one butterfly top right) and is quite small for me at 5" (13cm) square. I began by dusting Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Iced Spruce over the whole of the card front and then applied Rusty Hinge through a Clarity Poppy stencil. I stamped the main image from Chocolate Baroque Pretty Poppies set using Sepia Archival ink and watercoloured it with the same DIs. I stamped two butterflies from the Honeysuckle Butterfly set with Sepia, top left directly onto the basecard and the other one onto a separate piece of card and embossed them both with clear embossing powder.
Once again I coloured them with the same Distress Inks. I cut out the separate one, shaped the wings slightly and stuck it to the card by just the body.
Finally I stamped the sentiment from Chocolate Baroque clear set Amazing Birthday using the Sepia Archival and again embossed with clear embossing powder.
Thanks for dropping by and now I'm off to link up to the challenge. As there's still just over a week to go on this final challenge why don't you make an entry .... I might just manage another one if I get my skates on ;-).
PS My friend Lynne just pointed out that this card also fits the current Stamping Sensations lovely challenge so I'm linking to that as well. I have these challenges in my sidebar and never think to check them when I do a post, lol!
