Challenge Thirty-One

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for your lovely comments and visits to the blog over the past month, we really appreciate your support, and love reading what you have to say. We will be announcing the winners of Challenge Thirty 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 the 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 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 fabulous new colour swatch for you this month, including a piece of original artwork from Miranda. We will be sharing some beautiful inspiration from the Design Team over the coming weeks. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. on Tuesday 14th February 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 22nd February 2017. Here are some projects from the Design Team:

Claire's pretty tag, incorporating a foliage border, and the duo of butterflies is finished off with bold black accents:
Anne has used a Big Bold floral background to make her stunning card, adding a lacy border, and a lovely sentiment. The challenge colours are perfect for her floral theme:
Magda's gorgeous card returns to the butterfly theme, her dreamy background provides the ideal setting for her glittery butterflies:

Thank you girls for your inspiration using the new challenge colours. We hope that they will inspire you to create something yourselves for the challenge. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our challenge blog team. You can get in touch by sending a private message, details are at the end of this post; below the comments section.

We hope that you enjoy the new challenge and look forward to seeing your projects.
