This is my first entry to the monthly challenge for Chocolate Baroque. It’s a fun challenge to do as they set you a colour palette to work with.
I’ve used my Indian Elephant Chocolate Baroque stamps as the key pieces in this creation.
I started by working onto linen finish cardstock. I sprayed the card with water and then applied streaks of colour using Distress Paints – Mustard Seed, Broken China, Mowed Lawn and then used the lid of my Festive Berries to add some red circles. I used a cloth to blend the colours a little and I then sprayed it again with water to help it blend further.
Once dry I added some dotty details using Salty Ocean Distress Ink through a mask.
I then stamped my elephant and the wording (from Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations). Finally I built up a collection of flowers in both corners with the flower stamp from the Indian Elephant set. I think this little stamp has to be my favourite stamp – I just love the delicate detail of it!
It was then in with lots of highlighting with the white gel pen to bring it all to life. Finally I drew a line border around the outside and added a few ‘sparkle’ highlights with my black fineliner.
I love working with the elephants.. whatever I create always make me smile!
