GDT for Chocolate Baroque.

Hi everyday it's a busy blog day for me today. My 1st post is a tag I made for Chocolate Baroque.
Thank you to Glenda for asking me to join is as GDT.

  • I cut the tag out on my Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine using Kraft card.
  • Using Floral Bouquet I stamped the main image with Versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder. 
  • I then coloured the flowers with Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves & Crushed Olive distress inksTip: Make sure each colour of ink is dry before adding the next one so that they don't bleed together.
  • Next, to create a background, I stamped randomly around the main image with the Teeny Weeny Meadow stamps using Crushed Olive.
  • When everything was completely dry I distressed the edges with the Picked Raspberry to emphasise the colour in the bouquet.
  • Finally I added some twine and the Thank You mess
  • Back soon with another post.
  • Thanks for calling
