Alpha Tags J and K

 It's time to show the next tags in the Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag series!

I am really enjoying doing the tags and am amazed at the variety of artwork produced each month.

J is for Jubilee! Well I had to didn't I?

Tag is randomly stamped with floral stamp from Texture Fragments set and embossed in white. Masked off areas to make a Union Jack (well sort of!) Used DI Barn Door and China Blue.
Ribbons from stash and Charm from Ribbon Girl.

K is for a Kaleidoscope (of Butterflies)

I used Alcohol Inks Sail Boat Blue, Red Pepper, Sunshine Yellow and Lettuce to make the background.

I then stamped a solid Butterfly from the Butterfly Blush set and embossed in various colours from Stampendous.

I then printed off the matching Butterflies from the Artylicious Butterfly Bliss CD ROM, cut them out and layered them.

Need to do 3 next month, so best get started!

St Luke's Charity Cards Challenge - One Layer

"This month at St Luke's there is only one rule and that is to have no layers on your card - stamp, draw, ink, emboss - whatever technique you fancy  - just do it directly onto the base card."

For my card I have used the Passion flower stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Easter Traditions set. Simply stamped with Memento and coloured with pencils!

Thanks for looking

Less is More - Yellow

Gosh it seems ages since I posted a card!
So, back to it with a card made for Less is More.

This week we are back to a colour challenge and the chosen colour this time is 


Other colours may be in evidence as long as the main focus colour is yellow.
 For my card I used a Crafty Individuals stamp with a Honeysuckle image, a Chocolate Baroque swirl from Artistic Expressions set and DI Scattered Straw. Layered stamped image onto plain white card which had DI blended around the edge to match!
