My Chocolate Baroque Debut

Hi everyone I'm Debbie & this is my first blog post as a Chocolate Baroque team member so I'm just a bit excited! 
I was asked recently what was the first Chocolate Baroque stamp that I bought? What better way to introduce myself to you all!

So let's start off with Medici Flower stamped onto a Brusho background with a black inkpad & simply coloured with water based pens. 

The image was then mounted onto black card & I've added thin strips of black card to the background to add interest.  The background has been created with Studded Lattice which I have embossed with white powder & sponged with Distress inks Worn Lipstick & Spun Sugar. The sentiment comes from Amazing Mackintosh Words. I've mounted the design onto an A5 white card blank. 

For my second design I've used French Heart which has also been stamped onto a Brusho background & water coloured using Brusho powders.

 I have used Chocolate Baroque White Silk Board which is a great quality card especially for this technique.
 I have used a 7" x 7" ivory card blank & this has been stamped with Open Weave using a brown inkpad & I've also sponged lightly around the edges of the card blank. 
The sentiment also comes from Amazing Mackintosh Words & both stamped pieces have been mounted onto orange & then brown card before attaching to the card blank. 

For my third & last design I've used one of my favourites Lords & Ladies.

 I've embossed in white onto a circle of Kraft card & coloured with water colour pencils which have not been activated with water. I find that you get stronger colour when using Kraft card than with ordinary pencils. 
I've used a 7" x 7" white card blank which I've stamped with Square Bubbles using Distress ink Seedless Preserves. I've also softly sponged around the edges using the same inkpad.
As before the sentiments with which I've randomly stamped around the edges of the card blank come from the very versatile Amazing Mackintosh Words. To finish I've added some faux stitching around the edge of the circle using a white gel pen before attaching to the card blank.

I hope you've enjoyed my designs. See you again next time, Debbie
