Chocolate Baroque Guild Members April Swaps

The newly formed Chocolate Baroque Guild started its swaps for 2011 in April with an ATC with the theme of ‘Chocolate’ in Chocolate and  Cream and a Tag with the theme of ‘Baroque’ in blue hues.

My ATC comprised of an Artylicious background paper overstamped with various stamps form Elusive Images and Chocolate Baroque. A strip of Chocolate Pearlescent card was punched a la Martha and laid over glass glitter. Stciky backed pearls were added. An Acrylic heart from CB was gilded with shades of gold leaf and satmped with the floursih from the Love Stamp.

My Tag was a cream tag coloured with DI and sthen stamped with some EI and Chocolate Baroque Stamps. Half was covered with a piece of torn Artylicious background paper , again overstamped with EI and CB stamps. The torn edge was decorated with Gold Leaf and Gold Glass glitter and an Acrylic tag was gilded on the reverse and stamped on the front. It was finished with a fabris flower- coloured with Di and stamped with a CB word stamp.
