Chocolate Baroque Challenge #4 in Nouveau Style

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well this week.

I have a design to show today using the Free Digital Background available from Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge Blog, which features the colours for the current challenge:

The background is the free download that you can find here.   I stamped the beautiful lovebirds from Nouveau Lovebirds with black ink, coloured with Inktense pencils and highlighted with a white Gelly roll pen and glitter.  The background behind the birds was created using Distress Ink & water on my craft mat.  I stamped the deco pieces from the set on the background paper (not straight at the top, it was hard for me to just leave it that way!).  Love is from Artistic Expressions

And below is the challenge inspiration photo.  We would love it if you could join us for a chance to win a £15 gift voucher at Chocolate Baroque.

Design by Lesley Wharton

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Wunderschön, Shirley.
Du hast die Farben wunderbar umgesetzt.
Ich liebe diese Stempel von Baroque.
Und grade gestern habe ich auch diese beiden Vögel verarbeitet.

This is a really gorgeous card with an unusual image and the motifs top and bottom. Love the way you have coloured/painted it, the main image of the birds seems to glow.

A beautiful card Shirley, and the choice of stamp, wonderfully coloured, is just perfect with the digital background and the lovely enhancement with the colours and extra stamping and pretty ribbon. x

how incredible with the white highlighting so meticulously accomplished, Miss Shirley! Wonderful card in every way, and I also like your Fall header - how resplendent. I know you remember it fondly, with bittersweet feelings. Think of the new family enjoying the work of art in their yard! xo
