I'm so pleased to have broken up for the school holidays - it was just manic for the last few weeks and its nice to get a lie in.
I've got a couple of cards to share that I have done with just one of the stamps from the carousel horses theme plate from Chocolate Baroque
The first is an 8 by 8 card completed with virtually all Chocolate Baroque products.
The backing paper is printed from the Essence of Nature CD. The horse is stamped in memento tuxedo black and coloured with pro markers.
The insert was printed on the computer and then stamped with the horse. The corner ornaments are from the New England winter stamp plate.
I think the horse looks good in monochrome.
Now onto a second card. It has turned out very sweet and girly, but I just couldn't help myself. These stamps are so gorgeous.
The backing paper is again from the Essence of Nature CD. As you can see, I've stamped the horse in versamark and then embossed with silver EP. The horse is coloured in shades of purples, lilac and lavender then cut out with a nestie and mounted on a scalloped oval. I've added a Marianne Creatables tag and flowers, some punched leaves, a sentiment from Lili of the Valley and a charm. Its all a bit busy but its turned out cute so that's OK.
