Zoe - Colour Challenge #28 for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning Lovelies, I'm a little late posting today, up to my eyes in it at the moment. Today I'm sharing my first sample for Challenge number 28, I love these cool colours, I felt they were quite contemporary which is reflected in my project.

Here's my wall plaque!

I used some cardboard box which I semi stripped and painted with a chalk paint very randomly for a more "rustic" effect, then using a mini triangle Gel plate, chalk paints and various texturising implements - bubble wrap, comb and crumpled paper towel, I then inked the rest to tie in the colours using distress ink, I stamped my flowers over the top using Onyx Black Versafine inkpad - Sketchy Doodle Flowers and Sketchy Doodle Landscape, I then finished off by highlighting areas with a Chrome marker and liquid enamel dots.

This is the colour Swatch to copy, I didn't make the card with it!

Thank you so much for visiting, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx

Zoe - Colour Challenge #27 for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning Lovelies, I'm back today with a second sample for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge.please click on the link for the info on joining in.

For this card I used a glittery paint and simply painted it across the Linen textured card starting with the darkest shade working down to the lightest, once it was completely dry I used Versamark inkpad to stamp Winter edges stamps, first using a pale blue pearlescent embossing powder and the trees using a black embossing powder, I heat set the paler colour first to stop any contamination, the sentiment is a diecut.

Below is the colour Swatch in which to follow, yummy colours don't you think?

Thank you for joining me again today, I hope I've inspired you to join in? Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
