Fat Plants

Hello,
do you like fat plants? To be honest I didn't until I received the new "Succulent and Cacti" stamps from Chocolate Baroque to work with. During this month I will show you the samples I have made.

Just for you card  :   
Stamp the big Captivating Cacti image with Versafine Onyx Black on 250 grams white cardstock and colour the background and the cacti with Brusho watercolour powder diluted in water. The sentiment is from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle plate


Grow positive thoughts card:
On  250 grams white cardstock stamp the image using Distress Ink Pad  according to the colour that will be used to colour the flower from the Scrumptious Succulents plate.  Use colouring Pencils for the background and the flower. While the frame behind and the background of the sentiment are made with  Distress Inkpad green and brown blended together.  Stamp the sentiment from the Blossom and Grow stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black



S.w.a.l.k. card :
Stamp the flower from Scrumptious Succulents plate on craft paper with Versafine Sepia.  Colour the flower with white and brown pencils; stencil the bricks with Distress Ink Pad Walnut.  You can find the sentiment S.w.a.l.k. among the stamps of the Mail Art rubber plate


Thank you for passing by and see you on the 17th again.

Essence of Nature for the sentiments
- Different stencils

April Cards


Hello everyone
this morning I have some quick projects for you done with the stamps that Chocolate Baroque has demonstrated at the TV show at the beginning of April

Card with envelope:
For this one I used Dina Wakley White Gesso and Tim Holtz Distress Crayons-Set 1 for the background andArchival Jet Black for stamping the flower of "Wisteria Lane"  on the mat and on the envelope. You can find the sentiment "On your Birthday" in Words to dazzle & Sparkle.


Thank you card:
This time I coloured the flower of the stamp set "Eastern Grasses"with different colours of Distress Inkpad and spritz it with water before stamping, in order to have a watercolour effect.  The sentiment of the same rubber plate, is stamped with Versafine onyx black. 




Napkin rings:
This simple table decoration could be perfect for a summer dinner.  Stamp with Versafine onyx black the waterlily of "Serenity" .  Colour the stamp with Aquarelle watercolour pencils and cut the contour.  Use a piece of heavy white cardstock  for creating a napkin ring and colour it with a similar pond colour.  Glue the waterlily on your ring.






I hope you liked the post of today and thank you for passing by.
