Hello dear friends,
I don't know what do you think, but for me a tag is a concentration of ideas, feelings, techniques, colours and layers of products.
For this Tag Collection I used the following items, that you can find at Chocolate Baroque:

Fragrant Honeysuckle for the images
Essence of Nature for the sentiments
- Different stencils
Distress Ink Pad
Versafine in different colours
White Gesso
- Modeling Pastes
Tags size 8"

I hope that in each tag you could find something interesting.

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.

Cards and ATCs

Hello girls,
as my third and last blog post for this month, I would like to inspire you with some cards and ATCs.

The background of this first card was created by blending Distress Ink Pad on which I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, different stamps from Chocolate Baroque  and coloured them with watercolour pencils.
The collections are : Landscape Edges ( sun and wall), English Cottages (house and tree), Village life (tree)

Here is a very clean and simple card
I just stamped  with Versafine Onyx Black, two stamps from Village life  and the birds from Landscape Edges  on a blended  Distress Ink Pad background, using  the beautiful 250gr A4 white cardstock

On Your Birthday card
has as focus points the red label with the sentiment from the  Words to Dazzle and Sparkle  stamp plate and the glittered Stickles light coming behind the clouds. In Landscape Edges  you can find all the stamps for this card. The background is again blended with Distress Ink Pad  on A4 white cardstock

Three ATCs from the same  A4 white cardstock wiped with Distress Ink Pad and water. The stamps from Landscape Edges are stamped with Ranger Archival Inkpad Jet Black, as well as the sentiment from the Amazing Mackintosh Words collection. 

Thank you for passing by and I will see you next month with another Chocolate Baroque stamp series
