Beauty in the Eyes at Chocolate Baroque

 Hello there! I am here today with some makes using the Beauty in the Eyes stamp set released in the October shows for Chocolate Baroque. I made a card, a canvas and a tag using this stamp showing its versatility. Its a really striking image that works so well with different techniques.

In this first sample I stamped the image in black ink and coloured it using water colour pens. I then mounted it on papers matching the colour theme I had chosen and also with the circle theme going on.

For this next one I stamped the image onto script paper and coloured using water colour pens. I then created the rest of the canvas using similar colours of acrylic paints and also mixing coloured mica powders in with texture paste and using that through a stencil. Once all that was dry I added the image.
The final one I used a piece of mop up card and stamped on the image. I used a die to cut the tag shape. Then added more colour using water colour pens and finally added some leaves from the 'From nature 1' set that I had stamped and foiled in flake. I then added the black background and the ribbon. 
I hope this has given you some inspiration. Have a great day!
