Chocolate Baroque Alphatags E, F and G

It's time to send off this month's Chocolate Baroque Alphatags!

E is for Eclipse

For this tag I masked off a moon with a Post it note and using my blending tool covered the tag with DI Black Soot. I used stamps from Chocolate Baroque Howling Moon - railings, trees and small owl, larger owl is from Fat Robin set with the holly masked off. Stamped with Versamark and  Black EP.
Cut out a moon in black card to resemble the eclipse!

F is for Flowers and Foliage

Background of tag made with DI Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Tattered Straw, water and gold mica. Stamped the Fern stamp from Chocolate Baroque Wild Meadow with DI Peeled Paint. Die cut two leaves from Spellbinders set, covered with Versamark, clear EP and different colour micas. Die cut a flower with TH Tattered Florals from CB paper and added a brad coloured with DI Aged Mahogany.

G is for Gratitude

I was struggling with this letter and then Glenda released some new stamps! Artistic Expressions were perfect. I printed off some paper from Essence of Nature, stamped and embossed in Black EP the text, added a butterfly from Just Butterflies painted with mica powders and added three gems.

Thanks for looking,
Will get these in the post today and look forward to receiving my swaps!

Less is More - Script

Week 58 at Less is More

Everyone's favourite... the One Layer Card!
Actually we think that some little time ago the thought of a One Layer Card struck fear into the hearts of many LIMettes, but we know that quite a few crafters now really enjoy this genre and make some stunning projects.
This week we'd like you to include 
This includes any text, not just handwritten styles, but must be in addition to any sentiment you might decide to add.
If you have no suitable stamps, you could always resort to your own handwriting (Shock Horror!).

For my card I have used a Verse from Chocolate Baroque's Artistic Expressions and the Flower is from their Punky Romance set.  All stamped in Archival Black and a little Glossy Accents on the flowers!   
Nice and simple today!

Less is More

Less is More Week 56 - Colour
"It's the first week of the month (Gracious, it's March already) and so we've got a colour challenge which this week is
This could be anything from off white to black with any shade of beige, brown or grey in between."

For my card I have used Clarity card and DI  Antique Linen,  Tea Dye and Vintage Photo, which I applied with Ink Dusters. Matted this onto Core'dinations and roughed the edges and inked with Vintage Photo. Sentiment is from the gorgeous new Chocolate Baroque Artistic Expressions.
