May all your dreams come true.........

Good morning!

This card has been created for the current Chocolate Baroque colour swatch challenge - it was a beautiful colour choice this time.

I've taken some photo's for this one so lets take a journey and see how I got there.....

Oooh lots of lovely inkiness!  It was a mixture of distress inks and adirondak on here.  Blended them together and then stamped some flower images on there just with water (not easy to see I admit) and then also splattered some water on there too and lifted off the colour.

OK, here comes the stamping! So I've used the Chocolate Baroque flowers and coloured them in using my Polychromo pencils.  I must say, this took a while but it was sooooo relaxing.  I then highlighted some areas with the white polychromo pencil.

So on the final card you can see that I have added further flowers, again coloured those in and highlighted with the white pencil and added a background stamp and the word "Art". On the actual card I have stamped the sentiment also from Chocolate Baroque.

I enjoyed making this one purely down to the quietness of just sitting down, colouring in and drifting off to that place where we all go when our minds switch off a bit - have you ever been there - it's really nice!

I would like to enter this in to the Chocolate Baroque colour swatch challenge:-

Hope you enjoyed your visit today,
Thanks for stopping by,
