You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch, using as much or as little of each colour as you wish. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display winner's badge on their blog.
Here's my Christmas card featuring the brand new Swirl Centre Flowerhead. I inked up the background with Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio. I stamped the corners with Colorbox Metallic Gold Ink and scattered some snowflakes with Mermaid Lagoon. The greeting is from the Christmas Cheer A5 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Crimson Red. To finish, gold ribbon tied in a simple knot and a few tiny gold bling.
Here's a closer look at the flowerhead. I heat embossed it with WOW Gold Rich EP, inked it up with Aged Mahogany and fussy cut it before adhering on the card with foam tape.
