Chocolate Baroque - Final August Project

Good morning everyone,

The month of August has flown by.  Hard to believe that this is my third and final project as this month’s Guest Design Team member.  It’s been wonderful.

 We’re going to end with the flower theme and coloring with Distress Inks.



   Stamps – Loving Sentiments Rubber Stamp sheet-A5, Auricula Script

   Distress Inks – Pickled Raspberry, Dried Marigold, Twisted Citron, Worn Lipstick

   Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black

   White cardstock, dark pink & pink cardstock

   Waterbrush-Detailer Tip

   Double sided Foam Tape

   Gold cardstock

   Corner punch

   Gold sticker strips

 Stamp the image onto white cardstock with Archival ink. Taking the Distress ink pad, Pickled Raspberry, smush it onto a non stick surface. Then pick up the colour with your waterbrush and begin painting in the image.

Start with your lightest colour, let dry slightly, then come in with your darker colours for contrast.  In order to get deeper colours, use let water, to blend, add more water.  If you feel you’ve got too much water, simply dab with paper towel.  You may have to go over certain areas a few times to create depth of color.

Once piece is dry, fussy cut out the image, leaving a small border.

Once piece is dry, cut white cardstock to 5 ½” x 8 ½” (13.97cm x 21.59cm) and fold in half.  Cut a piece of pink cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼” (10.16cm x 13.34cm).  Punch corners with corner punch, and add gold strips of stickers for interest.  Cut 2 strip of dark pink cardstock, one ¼” x 5 ¼” (.60cm x 13.34cm), and the other one ¾” x 5 ¼” (1.90cm x 13.34cm) and attach to middle of pink layer.  Attach to front of card.

Attach image to card front with foam tape.

Stamp saying with Archival ink onto white card stock, trim and mat with gold cardstock.  Use corner punch to punch corners of saying & attach to card. 

Thank you so much to checking out my project.
