Potential in all

Another card made with a preset colourcombination:

Daqadoodles027The colourscheme is from Chocolate Baroque challenge # 7.

I stamped the queen, then the pawns several times and masked all off, then coloured the card using various shades of brown and green.  I then took a CB background stamp from the nature fragments set, misted it with water and put it on the card, then dabbed a dry cloth to the card. The stamp absorbed the water nicely, leaving a bit of a chessboard pattern behind.Daqadoodles150208zo130419006The chesspieces are coloured with a waterbrush and distress ink scattered straw. The text is embossed. I should look for another red embossing powder, I am always a bit disappointed by this one, it looks so bright red when unmelted, but is much darker melted. I had really wanted the word Queen to pop.  To compensate, I put a red background against it, stamped a CB stamp from the steampunk christmas I think (the corner stamp) with fired brick or barn door, went over it with a waterbrush and after that went over it a bit with waterbrush and scattered straw distess ink.

Back to the steampunk birds / onto the extra card in this post.Daqadoodles028

I had planned it to be an entry into the CB challenge of that month, challenge 5. If you look at those colours, it doens’t really match.

It’s because I got carried away while making the card,deciding to put in an accent and make the wing yellow. I didn’t think of the challenge colours at that point, I just made the wing yellow. And then I thought: uhhh that’s not in the challenge colours! So this didn’t get into the challenge entry.

I added more accents in the flower stamp, as I didn’t have to stick to a colour scheme anymore.  Daqadoodles141122za16144807

Looks good this way, doesn’t it?  I just love the steampunk birds I guess!

    • Thanks for your visits – even if they’re late. “Real life” is much more important then the online version, that should always come first. I don’t know if being “late” is linked to that, but if you’re short on time, then it is😉. Don’t worry about commenting on every post! A like once in a few posts so I know you have visited/seen them is good enough for me too😉
      Do you get any error messages when leaving comments on the other posts?
