Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments and kind words on my last post.
This is the first of two quick posts this weekend as I wanted to share some cards made with the Chocolate Baroque Christmas stamps.
For both of these cards I have used the Madonna and Child stamp from the “A Child is Born” set.
I printed out a piece of music paper and then just stamped my image onto that using a dark brown Archival ink.
I colored the image using water color pencils. Just applying color where I wanted it and then using a damp paint brush I blended the colors.
I then made up the card as seen using some petty papers from my stash and adding a couple of wooden embellishment and some plasters tape.
For my main focal piece I used a piece of card that I had soaked up some stray ink onto. I lightened areas by *dribbling on some liquid Vanish. Y’know the stuff that you use for the laundry.
I made up the card as seen just adding a little bit of ribbon and some blue gems.
* Just to share. When empty and clean, the bottles that contain the liquid used in the new electronic cigarettes are brilliant for crafting. They have a long thin nozzle on them and work great for the bleaching purposes above or for applying glue.
That’s all from me for today.
I will be back tomorrow with the last of the Christmas cards.
Thank you for looking.
Have a great weekend.
