Chocolate Baroque "Best Wishes"

Hello to you all, I am back with another sample made from the new stamps that have just been released for July over at Chocolate Baroque. My card uses one of the stamps from 
I first inked up my card with Picked Raspberry and Faded Jeans Distress inks then I sprayed my fragment stamp with water and stamped this onto the inked card. This then removes the ink......
Once this was dry I then stamped the Harebell Butterfly image over the top and coloured in with distress inks.  I inked the edge with Black Soot to add depth then mounted onto white card.

I am also sharing a Christmas card this time using stamps from the newly released  "Turtle Doves stamp sheet". I first of all clear embossed the stamp with black Versafine then using a mask for the moon blended Faded Jeans and Black Soot distress inks for the sky. The hills in the background were made using some torn card and  more fade jeans on some sponge.The tree has been coloured in with Distress inks and the gorgeous sentiment is from the newly released Christmas Magic stamp sheet.xxx
 I am entering this into
