I've been playing with some new Chocolate Baroque stamps. Both cards shown here use the Punky Flowers set. But two completely different syles.
Steam Punk cogs - the spiky flowers are stamped and embossed in gold, the larger flowers were left to dry a bit, and so the embossing powder has taken less. This was to try and give an illusion of depth. The yellow is SU Hello Honey, such a lovely old gold type colour. Although the background was sponged and coloured, I gave some texture by using an embossing folder with cogs.
This card is for my niece who is studying science - Happy 21st Jen!
In the same set are some lovely art deco flowers which I embossed on to some card I had inked, and added a sentiment from the Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh sentiments. The inky background is SU Blackberry Bliss (I know its more purple really, but when watered down and smudged across the paper is this gorgeous pinky purple) and Hello Honey.
