Imagine the possibilities........

Good morning!

Here is my entry for the current Chocolate Baroque colour swatch challenge:-

My teal blue is coming out rather blue on the photograph but it is indeed the same teal blue as the sky is but the light is making it lighter!!!!!!

I have used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens for this project to make the lovely blended background here.  I then stamped Katya right in the middle and lifted out some colour from her face and her head dress with water.

The silhouette palace 1 stencil was used at the bottom and I sponged some Momento red ink through this and shaded it a bit darker with a Momento brown ink pad.

The sun/moon and clouds have been produced using water again and lifting some of that ink and covering the sun/moon with some of the lifted ink so it gives you that lovely positive/negative effect.

The sentiment is from the Chocolate Baroque words of inspiration stamp set and the little birds are from the serenity set

I finished off by adding some white pen dots around the head dress to pop it a bit and I was very happy with this.  

The example of the challenge swatch made me think of a calmness with a dreamy feeling and so, this is what I tried to produce with the Chocolate Baroque products that I have and the colours for the swatch.

Hope you like what you've seen here today and have enjoyed your visit.

I would like to enter this in to the Chocolate Baroque challenge 34 colour swatch challenge:-
