colour challenge at chocolate baroque

Evening all - how are you? I do hope you have had a good day. Mine was okay - been to see the solicitor - such a nice lady! And I went to see another very nice lady for a coffee this afternoon and had a good blether. So all in all a good day with only one or two minor wobbles - thats progress for you!!!

Thanks for your kind comments on yesterdays card - I have another challenge card for you today - this time the chocolatebaroquechallenge-7 - this is the colour palette:



And this is my card:


I love this stamp - she's such a seventies girl to me - I had to go for the blobby background to go with it!! That was made using the double bubble stencil from Clarity - the stamp is, of course, chocolate baroque. I also used another chocolate baroque stamp around the edge.


I painted the main image using distress inks - peeled paint, rusty hinge, wild honey and then adirondack expresso.

I would like to enter this into the chocolatebaroquechallenge-7

Thats all for today - off to visit some blogs - big hugs Rachel xx
