Hello there. I am here today with my final set of inspiration from the September Chocolate Baroque shows - this time using the Echinacea Blueprint set. In this first sample I used an MDF film strip stand that I bought in a previous show and gessoed it black. I then created the central portion by stamping the main image on card and colouring using water colour pencils.

Santas little helpers at Christmas Card Club
Its time for another outing of the Christmas Card Club and this fortnight the theme is Santas Little Helpers - my mum has been a good girl and followed the theme - but I am afraid I had new stamps itching to be used so I have gone with the Anything Goes option! Here's mine: I used stamps from Hobby art and coloured with Clean colour pens.
Here's my mums using Pink Ink stamps.

More floral architecture for Chocolate Baroque
Hello there! I am on the Chocolate Baroque blog today with some more floral architecture for you from the September shows. In this first sample I used both the chrysanthemum and the allium sets along with flitterglu, foil and mica powders - all done on black card - I stamped the images in flitterglu then put the stamps straight into water before adding the flake and the mica powders to the glue.

snowmenwomen or snowfamilies at Christmas Card Club
Time for the first October outing of the Christmas Card Club - can't believe its already challenge 21 for us - this year is surely moving fast. The theme this fortnight was snowmen/women or snowfamilies. Snowpeople - you get the idea! I have made 3 cards and my mum has done two - all snowpeople are from Hobby Art stamps.
Firstly my three - all pretty much the same - stamped - cut out using sue wilson octagonal dies and coloured with clean colour pens - distress oxide in background and mounted onto die cut card and card blank.

Lupins and Lightbulbs for Chocolate Baroque
Hello there! I am on the Chocolate Baroque blog today with a couple of makes from Chocolate Baroque's September shows - these makes mostly use the Lupin Blueprint stamp set but there is a little stamp from the Echinacea Blueprint set also used.
My first piece is my ceramic piece - I do love this one and think it worked very nicely! As usual I stamped the images in ink and then over painted all the line work as well as the colours in glaze. My friend Deb from PottyRoos then took over and did the over glazing and the firing.
