Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #9

Hello everyone I hope you are doing well this week.

I have a design today for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #9.  The colours this month are gorgeous.


I used one of CB's new cling single stamp - Lady in a Hat and a sentiment from the Amazing Birthday clear set.

The background is Dylusions Inks (Midnight and Teal) which I love stamped with a flower from the Sunny Sunflower set.   I coloured the lady with Inktense pencils, cut her out and attached.

And below is the beautiful colour inspiration:

Card designed by Glenda of Chocolate Baroque

We would love it if you could join us, please visit Chocolate Baroque's Challenge Blog for all the information.

At the suggestion of one of my kind followers, I will join in at the Inkspirational Challenge #78 - as the theme is "She Art or Image of a Woman".  (Thanks Greta :))

Thanks for stopping by,
Shirleyx

Shirley, what a wonderful sentiment to put on your masterpiece. Even tho it is a birthday card, I image that the flowers over her hat are what seem to live in your mind - colorful, magical, exquisite - a garden of love and color! It's a beautiful card. hugs, de

This is a beautiful card Shirley and the stamp is so pretty. The lovely coloured background is so multi-layered and the sunflowers suit this card perfectly. These are the sort of colours I love to use too. x
