Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

I recently purchased a stash box from Chocolate Baroque and inside were these two wooden blocks, so I thought I would use them for this challenge.

Current Challenge

I used Archival Fern Green to stamp the images and coloured using Distress Inks Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed and Antique Linen. The stamp set is Flora and Fauna.

Finnabair Inspired Canvas

I recently attended a workshop with my craft club friends at Craft of Hearts, Tonypandy and this is what we made!
Going again soon to do an Art Journal cover and then we are having a go with Powertex.

Wanderlust Week 4

Week 4 already and this week we are encouraged to try our hand at still life painting. Eek I can't draw a straight line, that's why I buy stamps!
Well, I had a go and quite pleased for a first attempt. Maybe I'll be brave next time and use a canvas and not my art journal.

I am taking part in Wanderlust, a year long mixed media course. We have a video each week, a prompt for the art journal twice a month and lots of other wonderful things. I have learnt so much and it's only the third week! You can find out more here.

Here is my first art journal page....

 ....and here is a travel journal I have made from the Kate Crane video.

Lots of spaces left to add photos, tickets, receipts, etc. Memories from a Baltic Cruise 4 years ago.

Gilded Butterfly

Hi All
I treated myself to a Craftsy online class.
This one was 21 techniques with favourite supplies.  It was good to go over some of the techniques again and learn some new ones.
For this card I used Distress Inks Tea Dye and Vintage Photo and an IndigoBlu Butterfly which I added Gilding Flakes to.
Sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.
Very shiny IRL, but difficult to photograph.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I'm a bit behind in our monthly Christmas Card makes on Chocolate Baroque.
So here is the September prompt - Walking in a Winter Wonderland. I have also used the colour scheme so that I can enter into the CB Monthly Challenge.

I used the Damask Reindeer Set and Terrific Treescapes.
Distress Inks used - Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Mustard Seed and Picket Fence. These were spritzed with water  and cover with scrunched cling film.

Thanks for looking
