Fancy Flowers by Chocolate Baroque

Hello everyone and Happy Canada Day weekend to my fellow Canadians and Happy 4th of July to my American friends !

Chocolate Baroque has just announced July's new gorgeous stamp designs are Fancy Flowers and Poppy Meadow.    Each month it's like Christmas anticipating what yummy designs will be revealed. Today I have a design from the beautiful Fancy Flowers set.


I used a peach tone sheet of fairly solid designer paper for the backgrounds and stamped the images from Fancy Flowers with Cocoa Memento Dye Ink.   I coloured the beautiful flower with Prisma pencils and highlighted the center with a white Gelly Roll pen.   I blended a little Vintage Photo & Tumbled Glass DI around the background and added little pearls to the swirls of the flowers.

Here is a look at the Fancy Flowers A5 set with lots of beautiful images to colour and design with.   It's on special offer during July along with Poppy Meadow.   The two sets also qualify for a multi-buy discount.


If you would like to see designs by my talented teammates please visit Chocolate Baroque's Design Team Blog.     Also, you have a chance to win a set of the new gorgeous stamps -  all you need to do is leave a comment at this post here and Glenda will pick two winners at the end of next week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

This is very striking - the white of the flower pollen really draws the eye & I love the way you have added pearls to all those swirls in the background. Your matting colours always catch my attention & I particularly like your use of browns with the brilliant aqua - a softer effect than when using black which really suits the patterned papers you used.
