Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend. It's still very cold with piles of snow here in Ontario, Canada. We are looking forward to Spring, it's been a very long, cold winter, the toughest that I can remember. However the sun has been shining a lot in the last month which always feels good.
Chocolate Baroque has just launched gorgeous new stamp sets for March: Fantasy Castles, Magical Landscapes and a Spring Fairy Collection.
I have a design today featuring a castle and clouds from the gorgeous new Fantasy Castles.
I love the details in all the new designs they
beautiful. I wanted to create a true fantasy with a castle in the sky
surrounded by clouds.
I used Teal & Cut Grass Dylusions Inks to create the smaller background. Next I stamped the castle and clouds with Cobalt Archival Ink. I bleached the ink away from the clouds and painted them with Midnight Dylusions Ink (using my craft mat, water & brush). I coloured the castle with Prisma pencils and added glitter to highlight some areas.
The larger background was created with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using an acrylic block. I stamped with a decorative textile stamp from Indian Textiles using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.
I distressed all the edges and added a little Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I added a strip of background between the layers that I had cut away from the smaller background.
Here is a look at the new Castle stamp collection on special this month. They are available individually or as a set:
