Chocolate Baroque - Guest Design Team member

Good morning my crafty peeps, I’m extremely excited to have been asked to be a Guest Design Team member for this month. Chocolate Baroque has so many new and exciting designs in stamps it’s often hard to choose which ones to use..
Since we are in the middle of the dog days of summer here in Florida, I decided to go with a flower theme.
Supplies: Stamps – Loving Sentiments Rubber Stamp sheet-A5, Ladys Slipper Orchid Colour-Brusho Crystal Colour (Set of 24-Crimson, Violet, Lemon Yellow, Sea Green, and Turquoise) Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black Paper – Watercolor paper, cardstock Waterbrush-Detailer Tip Water Spritzer Bottles-2 pack Double sided Foam Tape Gold photo corner stickers

Cut the watercolor paper to 4” x 5 ¼” (10.16cm x 13.34cm) and stamp the image using Archival ink. When you first begin using your Brusho colors, take a thumb tack, and pierce a hole in the top. I cannot stress enough that a little goes a long way. Lightly spritz the paper with water. This will help the watercolors blend easier.

Being by sprinkling which ever color of Brusho you want to start with onto a non stick surface, then using your watercolor brush, mix a bit of water with the crystals and begin painting in the stamp. Use less water if you want to have deeper colors, and you can mix the colors together to create a specific shade.
Let each color dry before going onto the next color, which will help lessen the chance of colors bleeding together.
Once piece is dry, cut the dark purple cardstock to 5 ½” x 8 ½” (13.97cm x 21.59cm) and fold in half. Cut a piece of light purple cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”(10.16cm x 13.34cm) and layer onto cardstock base. Next cut a strip of medium purple cardstock, 4” x 1 ¾”(10.16cm x 4.45cm) and place on right hand side of mat. Cut out your image and layer onto card, using foam tape. Stamp the saying onto the white cardstock card with Archival ink, and mat with gold cardstock. Attach the saying to the front, then adhere the photo corner stickers.

Thank you so much to checking out my project, and please join me next week, when I use inks to colour in the stamps.
