15 minute post at Chocolate Baroque and a sneak peek

Hi there - my first of two posts today ... and a sneaky peak too... isn't it always the same - nothing for days then three come along at once!!!!

On the chocolatebaroque blog today there are more ideas for quick makes ... I have two cards to share...

This first one involves creating a quick distress crayon background - I added the colours gradually to the card and used my fingers to blend. The stamps are from the wild-meadowrubber-stamp-sheet. I stamped them in black archival.

This is a quick make using the Daisy centre flowerhead. I coloured this using distress inks and pens and a paint brush.

Finally a tag that I have on the fiskarettes facebook page ... here's a sneaky peek ...

I hope you can join me over there!

Thanks for looking today!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
