colour challenge at chocolate baroque

Hello lovelies! How are you? We are good and enjoying the half term! I had a day yesterday whilst the girls went to jujitsu and we are doing that again today - I had a run in the morning and did a bit of gardening later before my mum and dad came up - it was lovely to see them - I actually cooked a meal too - and baked a cake - so thats all good. Today I think I will swim unless its dry them I'll run again!

Have you seen the new colour challenge over at chocolate baroque? Here's the banner and picture:



Such lush colours - here's my interpretation of it -


well the colours don't look much like it - but trust me in real life they do! The Ophelia stamp was stamped and masked and then I used evergreen bough to do an all over background. Then I overstamped in evergreen bough using some of the flowers from the sunny sunflowers stamp set. 


I also stamped some leaves in purple (seedless preserves). And added some picked raspberry through a stencil. Finally I unmasked the image and coloured it in using distress pens - picked raspberry, seedless preserves, faded jeans and also a spectrum noir skin tone pencil. Finally I stamped the chocolate baroque stamp 'Let the adventure begin'.

I would like to enter this into the chocolatebaroquechallenge eleven.

Hope you have a great wednesday!

Big hugs rachel xx

  4. Gorgeous make, Rachel! This background with the image go so well together and the colours are gorgeous! If you take s pic and the colours look wrong it takes a moment to rectify in picmonkey by using the 'neutral picker', just click on a white are and it should adjust the warmth.. Hope this helps ;) hugs x
