Hello everyone I hope you are having a great weekend.
Chocolate Baroque has just launched a fabulous and fun new rubber stamp set, Steampunk Birds. As soon as I saw the 'punky' Parrot I wanted to create a tropical garden for him to hang out in:) It's been colder than normal here in Ontario, Canada so it would be great to feel warm tropical sunshine.
I started by stamping cog plants from Punky Flowers on the background with white Colorbox Pigment ink. I blended a few colours of green pigment ink over top and then rubbed off ink over the images (ghost stamping), but they are hidden into the 'garden'. Next I stenciled with Distress Inks and TCW Gears (at the top) and TCW Ferns in the centre.
I embossed the Parrot from Steampunk Birds and the flowers from Punky Flowers with copper on watercolour paper, coloured with Tombow markers and cut them out to attach. I added die cut leaves and a small metal cog. Imagine is from Artistic Expressions.
Here is a look at Steampunk Birds A4 set, which is on sale until the end of December.
If you have a chance please visit Chocolate Baroque's Design Team blog to see what my talented teammates are showing.
Note: The photo that I used for my new blog header was taken right after snow storm in February. We have some snow right now, but not this much ! (thanks again to Donna for teaching me how to create these).
Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
