Final 15 min post for Chocolate Baroque

Hello there! Well I have a card over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team page today - its the final time that Judith is putting together our quick makes so its worth  visit. I only have one card this time and this is it:
 I have used a gelli background print made using inks that I created. Over the top I stamped the artichoke image and simply coloured it in using watercolour pencils - I just love my inktense pencils - they are fabulous! I also darked the outer area afterwards covering the image with a circle then brushing over with distress oxide.

Hope you are having a good weekend - I am at Cumbria crafters again today - these months really roll around quickly - and Penny has a gymnastics competition tomorrow - so no rest for the wicked!!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
