chocolate baroque challenge

 Very last-minute entry for the current Chocolate Baroque colour challenge !
Brusho backgrounds, poppy stamp stamped with versamark and white EP for both cards.
Lesley's pretty download for the backing paper on both.
The one on the left, i painted the whole image with diluted white reinker and left it to dry overnight before colouring with marker pens and a waterbrush. I couldn't get the darkness i really wanted in the centre of the poppy, so had another go, this time using an ancient box of Karisma pencils to colour the image, no reinkers on this one.

The colour is more what I wanted, but the blending is rubbish - and guess what, i couldn't find any blending fluid to try to improve it either!


  1. Another stunning card vronnie. I like the slightly more subtle colours on the first one really. Kate x

  2. Beautiful cards Vronnie. Love how you have used the colors. Thank you for playing along with the Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge.

  3. Fab colours, I love your colouring x

  4. Sometimes it is a challenge to get out what is in your mind's eye. any chance mineral oil will blend colored pencil? I love your background especially with the darker flower.

  5. Lovely cards, I love your beautiful flower and gorgious colours!!

    Have a nice weekend
