sunburst meets Chocolate baroque

Hello lovelies! How are you? I'm late today and need to get a move on as I have a PTA meeting to go to - just writing this after having been to the Lancaster Museum on a school trip all about Vikings - very interesting stuff! Anyway - today I have a card to share with you made using the new embossing folder from crafters Companion and some older chocolate baroque stamps.


I made the background using distress inks - mustard seed, ripe persimmon and festive berries with a little picked raspberry - I smoosed them all over card using an applicator then used the sunburst embossing folder. Next I swiped over with a black archival pad.


The focal stamps are from Chocolate Baroque - two older sets - love these ladies! I have coloured them again with distress and fussy cut before mounting on the card. The background so made me think of art deco - thats why I used the inage.

Better get off to that meeting!

Big Hugs
