I have some stamps from the company Chocolate Baroque in my NBUS stash, and I found out they have a challenge blog, so I thought I’d give it a try. CB is a British company, and it cost a small fortune to buy these stamps across the pond, but they are so beautiful I thought it was worth it.
The challenge is to use these four colors:
Which i thought would go well with the stamps in their Asian-themed Tranquility set. I like the sunset gradient, too, so this is what I came up with:
I used alcohol markers on glossy cardstock to make the background. The bodhisattva image is from the CB set, and the sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set called Calligraphy Expressions. I added the gems to balance the composition. The card base is a dark midnight purple; I forget the brand.
Anybody have any suggestions on how to win at challenge blogs? I go through phases when i enter a lot, but I have yet to win. Well, wish me luck.
