Chocolate Baroque Patchwork Landscapes

Hello to you all, I am sharing with you my very first project on the Chocolate Baroque. design team. I am still pinching myself to think that Glenda thought me good enough.

I have decorated a wooden Door Hanger  using the fabulous Patchwork Landscape and Springtime Edges stamp sheets .  I first made my background by painting with a coat of Gesso and then blending various acrylic paints,I stamped my images with black Versafine onto white tissue paper,I then coloured the flowers on the reverse before applying PVA glue and attaching this to the hanger. I went on and stamped a script stamp in various places using white acrylic paint followed by one of the stamps from the Eastern Grasses stamp sheet this was stamped with Black Versafine....The edges were then inked with Black soot Distress ink.Last of all was the sentiment stamp inked up with black Versafine.
I am entering this into

Fabulous creation!

I like the tiny bits of colour along the bottom & the real pop of white on the snowdrops which is beautifully echoed by that script stamping. The Eastern grasses provide such a lovely frame too & the inking around the 'hole' is very effective. I love the way the tree sort of provides a 'hat' for the sentiment & how the border beneath really grounds it.

I absolutely love this piece and don't think I've ever seen a door hanger that looks this classy! The color palette goes so nicely with the sentiment you included and it gave me a sense of peace and hope as I looked at it. Great job with pulling all of those elements together and creating a beautiful scene. Thanks for sharing your amazing work with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
