Baroque Tiles


This was a difficult sketch challenge for me (Splitcoast). It reminds me of tiles in a kitchen which also has lots of copper in it...possibly a stove hood or lots of copper pots and pans. I sponged the whisper white with green galore, night of navy and creamy caramel. The stamp sets used were SU Baroque Motifs and Mostly Flowers. Then I cut it in equal sizes and embossed it with two layers of glassy glaze. I mounted the tiles on night of navy and layered it on copper paper. The emblem on the front is embossed with SU copper EP. The ribbons are sheer navy and copper cord. Thank you for your comments.

I saw another one similar a few days ago. Now that I've seen yours, I'm inspired to do one myself. I'll post it if/when it's done. Thanks for the inspiration - AGAIN - lol
