Tramonto fiorito

Alcuni giorni fa ho avuto la grande fortuna di vincere il premio della talentuosa Asha al Blog Hop di TuesdayTrowdown: due timbri Chocolate Baroque con dei fiori meravigliosi, che desideravo da tempo!!! Non vedevo l'ora di provarli, così ho preparato questo mixed media e ho deciso di partecipare al challenge#24 di Chocolate Baroque.
Mi sono ispirata a questa immagine/palette di colori del challenge 
Current Challenge
...e un po' anche al famoso quadro "Notte stellata" di Van Gogh   :D LOL
La base è un cartoncino bianco di recupero. Ho disegnato alcune linee con un pennarello da embossing trasparente e le ho embossate con la polvere da embossing color oro.
Ho stampato due fiori su avanzi di cartoncino bianco, li ho embossati in oro e li ho colorati con i Graph'it markers. Poi li ho ricoperti di vernice trasparente glitterata.
Per creare le "stelle" nel cielo ho mascherato la parte esterna (quella con i petali) di uno dei due timbri di CB e ho stampato solo la parte centrale, embossando con la polvere oro.
Oltre ai due timbri con i fiori, ho usato anche i capelli di Ofelia (un altro timbro di CB che avevo già), perchè mi fanno venire in mente il cipresso in primo piano di "Notte stellata" :D Li ho timbrati due volte, accostandoli ad altezze diverse.

Li ho timbrati direttamente sullo sfondo, li ho colorati con i Graph'it markers e poi li ho ricoperti di glossy accents.
Ho colorato lo sfondo con una grande varietà di Distress Ink, per cercare di riprodurre la palette del challenge e ci ho spruzzato delle gocce d'acqua.
In alcune zone, ho steso del Crackle trasparente (Distress Clear Rock candy).
 
Ho tagliato uno dei fiori in due parti e le ho posizionate sui bordi; l'altro fiore, intero, l'ho messo al centro. Per fare gli "steli" dei fiori ho usato un avanzo di grosso spago.
 
Ho aggiunto le bellissime gemme multicolori che Asha mi ha mandato come bonus (GRAZIE!!), e in alcuni casi le ho incollate sopra delle paillettes color oro.
Poi ho incollato tutto sopra tre strati di cartoncino di diversi colori.
...Lo strato più in basso veramente non è un cartoncino, ma è la carta viola che a volte si trova nelle cassette dei pomodori :D Mi piace tantissimo, così l'ho incollata su un cartoncino di recupero e l'ho usata come base! :D 
Mi dispiace di non essere riuscita a catturare in foto tutto il luccichio del mio tramonto... Forse in questa qui sotto, scattata con poca luce esterna, si vede un pochino (ma si perdono i dettagli dei fiori).

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

A stunning card, how lucky you were to win Asha's blog candy, and to be able to create this project. It is very reminiscent of the Van Gogh piece, and I would have recognised what you were trying to represent. Love the details, and great use of the challenge colours. Thanks for your entry into the Chocolate Baroque Challenge, Judith x
