Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for your visits and lovely comments over the past month, we really appreciate your support here on the blog, and love reading what you have to say. We will be announcing the winners of Challenge Twenty-Seven next week, so if you entered the challenge, be sure to check out the blog post, to see if you are the winner of our prize.
As a reminder to those of you who have visited our blog before, and for anyone who is new to the blog, our challenges are monthly, based on an inspirational photo and a colour swatch. A new challenge is launched on the third Wednesday of every month. You can use any medium to create your project; inks, paints, pens, pencils, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch in your project. We are offering a monthly prize of £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps to one lucky winner, who will be selected by Random.org from all of the entrants who have used Chocolate Baroque stamps currently available from the website. We welcome entries incorporating other stamps and images, but they will not be eligible for the prize. All entries will have the chance to be selected as one of our Top Three, and can then display our 'I made the Top Three at Chocolate Baroque' badge on their blogs.
We have a zingy new colour swatch for you to create your projects with this month, and some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team, which we will be sharing with you over the coming weeks. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:
I have made a project using a shaving foam background, and added a large flower image as a focal point:
Claire's pretty card uses elements from one of our bird-themed stamp plates. She has used Brushos to create a washed background, and added a squiggly border for a touch of individuality:
Zoe's gelli plate background adds to the retro feel of this card. She has used some modern geometric flowers to complete the design:
Anne has created a stunning panelled card using the Baroque Orchid stamp and some super die cuts:
Magda's romantic ATC is full of layers and texture. Great use of a small space:
We hope that you enjoy the new challenge, and look forward to seeing your projects, Judith xx
