July18My second entry to the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog.

The challenge is a colour palette one – so I started by gathering together the colours and stamps I wanted to play with.

I started with a piece of white linen card.

I applied a blend of Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and Scattered Straw on the background and then splattered with water droplets, left a moment to react and then lifted the colour to leave little white patches.july17stash

Next I added some highlights using a Memory Box mask with a Distress Ink Salty Ocean inkpad.

I wanted to add a subtle splash of red in the background so I used the bottom of my Stix2 gluestick into my Festive Berries inkpad and dotted the little circles about on the design.

Now for my feature stamps – the beautiful peacock is from Chocolate Baroque Peacock Glory.  The unique self wording is from Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations.

My peacock stamp was painted using a waterbrush and a little salty ocean and festive berries wiped onto my non stick craft mat.

A little fineliner border to finish and I’m done!July18a

  2. Hi Jane, your creation is beautiful. Great use of the colour inspiration and you’ve created a beautiful background to compliment your colourful Peacock. The Artistic Expression works perfectly with your design. Good luck and thanks for joining us in the fun at Chocolate Baroque’s Colour Challenge! Shirleyx

  3. Love this Jane, the background is fab, and the layers are very effective. The green and blue are a favourite combination of mine. Your peacock is very majestic, and the linen texture is super. I love the touches of black from the sentiment to the edging. Thanks for your second entry in our challenge, Judith.

  4. Wow how beautiful, the peacock looks fab and that background is stunning. Love the way you’ve created to rings, clever idea . Thanks so much for joining our first challenge at Chocolate Baroque
