Nature's inspiration with Chocolate Baroque......

Howdy doody?? 

I am on a roll this week lol :-)

Creative juices are working overtime - though finding what I need in the Craft Lab is still challenging me lol!

Inspiration for today's offerings comes from all the beautiful Cherry Blossoms and Apple blossoms in the village just now - I adore the delicate nature of them.....

The stamps are from the wonderful Essence of Nature set ( yes again!! ;-) lol) from Chocolate Baroque - available HERE

This time I have simply decorated them with Cosmic Shimmer Pearl drops available HERE

This second sample uses the fabby Wink of Stella pens (Pink) from Zig (grab 'em from Hobby Art HERE)  which I used to colour the background card and to stamp with before edging with Shaded Lilac distress ink for that spring colour theme. 

Once all that was done I ran the whole image though the Ebosser in the Hexagonal embossing folder (HERE) for extra interest :-)

I hope you like today's offerings - it would be lovely to know what you think - so please feel free to leave a comment below

Right off to have brekkie and do some more creative experimentation......have a good day!!!

Crafty cheers for now
