Autumn lady from Chocolate baroque

Good morning to you! I hope you are well and happy. We are okay - my girls had a lovely afternoon yesterday at their sports day - they really enjoyed themselves! I of course loved it too - but not quite as much as my evening swim at the quarry - it was really wonderful.

Today I am sharing with you a card I made whilst at coffee pot on Monday - I took some extra stamps along and had a play with the autumn lady from Chocolate baroque. I also used infusions in making this card.


I stamped the image and coloured her in distress pens and then masked the image before using paperartsy golden sands infusions on top of ripe persimmon distress ink.


Here's a closer view - the words are from Tim Holtz.

I'm having fun with the infusions - I caught a great video the other night from Giogiocraft - she shows 10 ways to use them here - I'm enjoying working my way through these ways and I will try to see if brushos work in exactly the same way - they seem pretty similar although the infusions to me have more mixtures of colour within one bottle. Don't know if thats true but its my current opinion! What do you think?

Have a good Thursday - I'm off to Kendal to see a friend from my distant past as a chemistry teacher in Kent! I haven't seen Alison for about 10 years so it will be lovely! Also we're off to see the Hobbit in the park at Lancaster tonight! Excited!

Big huggles
