'Taking the Plunge'
Above is my entry for this month's Chocolate Baroque Challenge.
*The stamp sets used were from two different sets of Chocolate Baroque Oriental clear stamps which I have had for some time and I felt they fitted the colour scheme nicely!
*The inked background was done on a Gelli plate which was firstly daubed with Mini Ranger Distress 'Mermaid Lagoon,'Peacock Feathers' and 'Twisted Citron - in that order and top to bottom;' a piece of scrunched-up newsprint paper was then dabbed over this to create a background texture. A 'sticky-note' circle was placed as a moon mask then a print was 'pulled' onto a piece of 7ins x 7ins white card.
*The stamped images were arranged and stamped accordingly using Versafine Onyx Black then coloured with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils before a moon was added using a foam blending spot and Distress 'Fossilised Amber.' I added a scribbly border with a Micron pen and finished off by edging the card with an alcohol marker before adding Mr Frog to the bottom right-hand corner.
No 3D additions this month - well - there's a first!!!
Et voila! - and here we have 'Taking the Plunge!'
