A touch of Charles Rennie Mackintosh



Good morning, I hope you are all enjoying the Summer weather which seems to be slowly returning to us here in the UK. And as it's 4th July a Happy Independence Day to all our American friends.

Today I am posting over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team blog, sharing some of my creations made for the June shows on Hochanda when Lesley shared the most beautiful Machintosh inspired stamp sets during the first batch of shows and on the second the lovely Seasonal Ladies, all of which were a joy to work with. You will find all of the stamps I used on the Chocolate Baroque web site.

I won't go into detail how I made my shares as all the instructions are on the DT blog but I am always happy  for you to mail me if you have any questions. The card at the top uses images from Mackintosh Window stamp set. And as I used three offcuts of Fabriano to stamp the images I am popping over to see Miss Di and Parsnip in the Playground, I'm thinking the end of term party must be any day now and wouldn't want to miss out on that one.



For this card I used stamped from the new Amazing Mackintosh WordsLarge Crackle Background and Mackintosh Windows again.


Here I used Brushos, the individual roses from Mackintosh Windows, a sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words and then the beautiful Spring Awakening.


And for my final share I used the lovely Winter Dawn and the new stencils that coordinate with the Seasonal Ladies.

Many thanks for popping in to have a peek at my makes today.

Beautiful cards Brenda. The first one is so intricate and superbly stylish. I love the second one, it has a great layout and the image inside the frame made with UTEE is such a clever idea, it's funny how we sometimes overlook the techniques that we've previously used and I need to have another go st this sort of thing again, thank you for the inspiration. Wonderful colours on the last two cards too. Wishing you a happy day. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Fabulous selection of cards! Love the deco images. And as youngest has had an offer of a place at Glasgow School of Art (home of Mackintosh!), I'm hoping to collect more images!

My fav CRM inspired designs, love how you used this stamp. Sad to say this part of the set is uninked in mine! But you have inspired me and pinning for future ref. The little plaque you made is fantastic - so effective.
