We Love Chocolate Baroque- Springtime
Flower Challenge- Pretty Pastels
I wanted to use my pastel chalk and colour with them. It's spring, so tulips are in order. I had this stamp for 8 years or so and like using it just like all the rest of my stamps but this one has not come out to play in a while. I stamped and embossed the tulips in gold and then I had some fun colouring in my tulips with my pastel chalks. I use cotton swabs to colour with my pastels and find they work quite well. I edged and highlighted the tulips in blue before stamping and embossing the sentiment in blue. I used my cotton swab that already had yellow on it to just colour around the saying. For some sparkle, I used my stickles on my tulips.
Crafty Creations-Anything Goes
I have a ton of calendar pages that, no, I can't throw out. I spent a few months going through all of them and cutting them out including even the back, with the small pictures, that I can use on cards. I received, a few years back, a Victorian calendar which was quite romantic and, while it is not completely my taste, I did save and cut out some images that I thought were nice including this one. Now, this could be for Easter but I was thinking of Alice in Wonderland. I actually love this one Crafting Blog Challenge called the Library Challenge but she is taking a hiatus. I hope she does come back because I enjoy this blog. I love the blue background since blue is my favourite colour, it's glittery and it matches Alice's dress. I have 2 sizes flower punch which I used to make the flowers, glued them in place and added the gold crystal in the middle. I took letter stickers which asks, "Do you have the time?" You know the rabbit is asking Alice since she did just take a hit of acid. For a finishing touch I added the heart.
Wishing everyone a great week ahead.
