It is Quintile time again for the swap at Chocolate Baroque - for anyone who may not know, a quintile is a piece of art which is five inches square and because they need to be posted it was suggested they should be kept reasonably flat. The theme this month had me in somewhat of a quandary because in fact there was no theme -'free choice' we were told with the usual proviso of using Chocolate Baroque stamps and/or products purchased from them. I think this month has proved beyond doubt that I have way too many of their stamp sets as well ink pads and other forms of colouring along with CDs, papers, dies and so on - you get the picture I'm sure; but what to use?? Not long ago I purchased a gelli plate from them and thought I would use that to make the tiles before deciding which stamps etc to use. I had a session of dabbling with acrylic paints and the gelli along with various masks, crumpled paper and so on until I had a reasonable selection of coloured backgrounds. Below are my two final results and I have a few more usable backgrounds to play with for something else.
A long post today, sorry - details below each picture
