Quick makes for Chocolate Baroque

Hello all! I do hope you are all well and if not I send you big healing hugs! Today I have two cards on the chocolatebaroque blog where the post is all about quick makes - 15 minute cards. There are always lots of ideas on there so do pop over if you get chance.

My two makes are quite similar - I have used the same techniques in both cases.

In both cases I stamped then masked the main image. Next I added more masks to create the border strip and blank off most of the card. Next I added distress ink to the main border and then used seasonal fragments to overstamp. Finally I removed all masks and coloured the main image.

This is the second one using exactly the same techniques but different stamps and colours.

I don't know if you saw the giveaway on craftyindividualsblog here. check it out!

Big hugs
