Heartfelt Creations and Chocolate Baroque

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. I haven't been around in blogland too much lately, there just hasn't been time. 

I have a design to show that combines die cut flowers by Heartfelt Creations with stamps from Chocolate Baroque.  I think they go well together :)


The background was created using Dylusions spray inks and over stamped and embossed in silver and Distress Inks using a beautiful damask design.  I also added a little white acrylic paint over a stencil.

The leaves are a stamp and the flowers are die cuts that I spent time to shape.    I start with white card stock and blend distress inks to colour.

Stamps:  Chocolate Baroque:  Dusty Damask (background design) and Sunny Sunflowers (leaves).  The sentiment is a limited edition door gift from an Art Specially Event in the Netherlands.

Dies:  Heartfelt Creations:  Majestic Blooms HCD74 (coloured with Distress Inks & molded using a stylus and mat) and Die-namics: Fancy Flourish Small.

Stencil:  Memory Box:  Texture Diamond

Below you can see the shimmer of the embossing:


Below a close up of the flowers:


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
Shirley

  11. This is really beautiful Shirley and the HC flowers are so pretty especially with the darker blue edge you have given them and the lovely flourishes and leaves behind, and the silver embossing and the stencilling looks wonderful in the background. x

  13. What a smashing card Shirley. I love the way you have layered the background, the silver embossing combined with the touches of white stencilling works so well. The time spent shaping those flowers was time well spent and those leaves from Sunny Sunflowers have always been a favourite of mine. A really super card. Elaine xxx

  25. You and me both trying to play catch up Shirley. Just back from the UK after having a super time with the grandkids, Alex has just turned 16. The first few months of the New Year are busy times for me going backwards and forwards to the UK. Amber will be 18 in March!!!

    Another elegant masterpiece with another super tone on tone colour scheme.

    Off to see what I have missed.
