My 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.
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!
I wish to enter this into the Chocolate Baroque Monthly Challenge
