rose and poppy

 I have made a couple of fairly quick cards using two of my favourite flower stamps from Chocolate Baroque.
The first also uses another favourite, brusho powders.

The image from harlequin rose was stamped with black versafine and clear embossed onto 300gsm white card.
A quick spray with water, then I added yellow, orange and green powders using the dinky plastic spoons that were on the Chocolate Baroque website last year - I hope they will be back at some point, as I would like another set!
Another spritz with water, this time very generously so that the colours spread out around the stamp.
Once it was thoroughly dry, I trimmed the image down, matted it onto black card and then onto a white 5"x7" card blank. It took far longer to dry the image than anything else, Ididn't want to use a heat gun as I liked the spread of colour as it was.

The second card uses a stamp from pretty poppies and a sentiment from mackintosh sentiments.
The poppy was stamped with black versafine and clear embossed, then sponged with distress inks - even quicker!
I love the clear sentiment stamps, it is so much easier to get the sentiment stamped where you want it!
