Periwinkle Corners

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.

We are still looking out our windows at piles of snow, but the sun is shining and they are starting to melt.   I have a card today using one of Chocolate Baroque's  new clear stamp sets,  Periwinkle Corners & Rosebud, which includes 3 pretty & delicate designs.  

I stamped the Perwinkle Corner onto Kraft paper and coloured with my Prisma Pencils.  I used a Nellie's Muliframe die cut oval and blended a little Crushed Olive and Black Soot Distress Ink around the outside.   I used a stamp from Textured Fragments around the first background.   I stamped the Periwinkle again around the 2nd background on Kraft Paper with black & blended Crushed Olive DI again.

Here is a look at the Periwinkle & Rose Bud mini stamp set.

If you would like to see more designs using the new stamps by my talented team mates, please visit Chocolate Baroque's Design Team Blog.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day !

  3. This is beautiful Shirley, and just goes to show that they are not just corners. I love the way you've put the beads in the centres of the flowers.

  5. I love the way you have made this whole design cohere by the use of both colour & imagery against some very striking black matting. The use of the corner stamp for the focal image just shows what may be done with a little twist in the orientation & I love your positioning of both of the corner stamps for the background. That sheer brilliant purple bow echoes the purple pearls of the flowers beautifully. Have a super Sunday.

  12. Hi, Shirley! A striking card, and lovely colors! How do you ever come up with the beautiful color combinations. The contrast between the black and goldish-olive looks amazing (I love black and olive, anyway, so it would have been a hit here LOL). Looks great to use the focal image as the frame image, too! Has the letter carrier brought anything new lately? hugs, de
