WLCB August Reminder

Today is the 18th of August so time for a reminder about the current challenge over at we love Chocolate Baroque where the theme is:

** Favourite Stamps **

As I am still quite new to Chocolate Baroque I don't yet have any stand out favourites but this stamp called baroque meadow is definitely going to end up in that category as I have used it several times already.

This is actually a one layer card, I started by masking a strip on the side and bottom of the card then I inked with DI until I was happy (the sun was done with a piece of post it note).  Once I was happy I took away the masking tape from the left side and stamped the image with Versafine Clair twilight ink. 

When I removed the masking tape from the bottom the edge was a little ragged so I fixed it with a black marker pen and a ruler.

This was really very simple to do and I am pleased with it. I hope you like it too.

I do hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge this month. 

I am looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.

I am also sharing this at:
Hand Stamped Sentiments #370 - photo inspiration (the butterflies, silhouette and the mauve flowers)

Cardstock: Smooth stamping card
Ink: Distress ink, wilted violet, victorian velvet; Versafine Clair, Twilight
Stamps: Chocolate Baroque, Baroque Meadow

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

It's an inspired design using Baroque Meadow Hilary, I also like this stamp as it's a silhouette and makes it really versatile. Again so nice seeing the envie and insert stamped, I do envies sometimes must must borrow your idea and take it further.

What pretty colours on your beautiful blended background and I really like how you've masked the area and then added the fabulous silhouette stamping to go over the edge. A real beauty Hilary x.

This is so lovely - and I agree I've only got a few Chocolate Baroque stamps but they are lovely to work with. Great tip for the ragged edge - I must remember that one - thanks for joining us at HSS this week.
