parsley clock

 I have to admit that I think my favourite of the new stamps from Chocolate Baroque is this one, featuring the cow parsley - such a different flower, and so delicate.
My first card was very simple, stamped and white embossed onto black card - the parsley was actually coloured with pearlescent paints, but they only show up on the butterfly in the scan image.
The sentiment was just stamped using a white pigment ink

 The background to the second card is a distress ink one, with peeled paint , broken china and squeezed lemonade pads stamped onto a paint mat, spritzed with water and the drawing cartridge used to mop up the colours.
Butterfly coloured with watercolour pencils, and a white posca pen for the parsley flowers.
The last sample had distress oxide inks sponged onto a whiteboard heart and the top fo the parsley flowers stamped in white ink along the bottom, and repeated once in black ink.  The part of the image with the butterfly was then stamped in black - butterfly coloured with alcohol markers and white

  1. Hi Veronica, I'm a bit late on my rounds this week, the first of your projects stamping the Parsley Clock (Keksi here in he Fens) is so effective on black, a real statement piece.
