A Beautiful Day

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

Chocolate Baroque has launched two gorgeous rubber stamp sets featuring Peacock images.   Each design is more beautiful than the next, I love them all.    My first design using these new stamps features a beauty from the Tangled Peacock set.


The background is created with Dylusions inks, TCW stencil - mini Fleur DeLis and Viva green gold modelling creme.  I sprayed water over the stencil in the bottom left corner and blotted with a towel to get the 'ghost' effect.  The beautiful Peacock was embossed with gold and I painted with Tombow markers.  I cut out the first one and stamped it a second time to decoupage the feathers and wing.  The sentiment is from Loving Sentiments.      I'm giving this card to a dear friend who is turning 90 this month!

Here is a look at the two new A4 (full page) sets.   They are on special offer during the month of June, with even a bigger discount if you purchase both since it will be so difficult to choose just one:)



Thanks for visiting and if you have time please visit the Chocolate Baroque DT to see the beautiful designs by my talented teammates.  You won't be disappointed !

Have a great day,
Shirley

  4. I absolutely love the way you used the Fleur de Lis stencil to echo the sahpe of the peacock's feathers - especially your layering of his tail. The colours are beautifully vibrant, the more so with your ghosting plus the white on the tail.
    I had to stop & order my set.....

  5. Stunningly beautiful ! That peacock is so gorgeous, and I really love the part of the card where you just used water with the stencil. That is an amazing effect.
    Do you teach through a store, and how often do you do classes ?

  13. Wow! Love the way you used the stencil. Sort of a reverse/ghost image of the modeling paste by using water! Super cool. Peacock is stunning!
