Birds with beaks

First the scans, as the colours are better looking on them.Daqadoodles002 Daqadoodles001The first is a bird in on the ground in a cornfield, made with stencils from TCW and stamps from Chocolate Baroque and 1 Dutch text clearstamp: “zomaar” meaning: without reason, literally translated. A card wihgoout a specific purpose, not for a birthday, but just because it can.

The card is made for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challlenge 7

I read the colours as:

  • Chocolate brown
  • brick red
  • olive green
  • cream/beige/straw yellow.

With this in mind I browsed through my collection of stamps.


Isn’t a brewster perfect for these colours? Brown and red, with corn and straw colours on the ground, green in the back. For the green background I also used a Chocolate Baroque stamp, or several actually. I konw you can hardly see it but the green was a bit too harsh green.

The other one is a bit darker, but with the same colours. Mixing the brown and read a bit more on the gear.


This card is a bit plain, it lacks something. A little bit of glossy accents on the eyes maybe, or (I notice now) metal colourd screws.

A little sneak peak also on birdcard number 3 – with the fired brick colour in mind I ofcourse had to use bricks as well!

  1. Hi Debbie, you’ve made some lovely cards using the CB stamps and the colourchallenge colors! It’s a joy to see these, have a sparkling day! xMiranda

  2. Hi Debbie, fabulous cards, as always. I love the rooster card, that stamp always makes me smile, as I used to keep chickens, and still miss them. Great use of the stencil in the background, fab idea it goes really well. Love card number two, and I shall be interested to see how number three turns out! Thanks for entering the Chocolate Baroque challenge, Judith xx

  3. Hi Debbie, both designs are fantastic, beautiful artwork and great use of the challenge colours. Thanks for joining us again at Chocolate Baroque’s Challenge, Shirleyxx

  4. Thanks for your lovely comments! My parents had chicken, and we would like some too but not untill after the renovation we’re planning on having in a few years.
    Glad you all like the cards, as they’re made with quite simple materials (stencils, sponge, distress ink, scissors, stamp, glue is basically all you need).

  5. Beautiful! You never fail to amaze me with your creations!
    Thank you playing along in Chocolate Baroque’s 7th Colour Challenge. A new colour challenge has started and I hope you’ll join us again.
    hugs, Asha
