Baroque Best Wishes

Yaaaaay!! I've made a card and it's still daylight!!!

Just for two challenges today, firstly at Pals Paper Arts where they have these colours for us,

and again over at Addicted to Stamps where we are required to Make a Mark with marker pens.

So without further a do, here it is

I have used my SU Write markers to colour the rubber stamps before stamping onto the white card, and then using the Big Shot to cut the Nestabilities Labels, and mounting them on 3D pads. The finishing touch was the addition of white pearls to the centres of the small flowers, and three under the sentiment.

I love this stamping technique as several colours can be used in one go, instead of several times with the different colours and the hassle of trying to match the designs up. A little tip with a larger stamp ( such as the flourish in this SU set) is to huff a breath on the stamp to moisten the whole design before stamping onto the card, as it can take a while to colour the stamp, the starting point can dry before the final detail is reached.

Recipe :                                  
Card = Real Red and White card FMS
Stamps = Baroque Motifs,Fresh Vintage, and Fiskars sentiment
Inks = Real Red, Primrose Petals, and Pool Party
Tools = Big Shot and Nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads and White Pearls

 Thanks for dropping by and I hope to be back soon.
