Echinacea all the way from Chocolate Baroque

  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.

In this final piece I stamped the backgound to the card using worker stamps then the main focus was stamped in versamark and heat set with white embossing powder before colouring in using water colour pencils. The layer in between was kraft card given the stamping and versamark/embossing powder treatment. 
Hope you've found some inspiration from my makes this month - I always enjoy making for the shows - the stamps are so intricate. Love them!
Have a great day!
