Challenge 34, Week Two, Winner's Week

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. This week, we are announcing the winners of Challenge Thirty-Three. The winer of the £15 prize to spend at Chocolate Baroque is Aussie Annie, whose project was drawn by as the overall winner. Congratulations Annie, we hope that you enjoy your prize.

Please email Lesley on so that she can organise your voucher. You can also display our winner's badge on your blog. Details of how to obtain the badge can be found on the FAQ tab at the top of the page.

The Top Three this month have been chosen by the Design Team, who have had a tough time as always choosing from all of your fabulous entries.  This month, as is the case sometimes, we had a tied vote, and we have a Top Four. The Top Four in no particular order are:

Congratulations ladies, you can display the Top Three badge on your blogs. Details of how to obtain the badge can be found on the FAQ tab at the top of the page. Well done to everyone who entered, and we hope that you will join in with the current challenge. You can find the details here.

We have some more inspiration from the Design Team to share with you this week:

Vronnie has created a beautiful card, using Katya as her focal image, and a fabulous washed background:
Asha's pretty card incorporates a real vibrant pop of colour in those red flowers.The stitched border, and coloured matting are lovely details:

Magda has added lots of clever details to her card; repeat stamping of the focal image to create a background, and fabulous texture to her main background:

Finally Anne's card is really dramatic, the bold colours all work so well together, set against a kraft background. The turquoise elements cleverly draw the eye around the card:

We hope that these projects will inspire you to create something yourselves and to join in with the challenge.

We will be back in a couple of weeks at the end of the current challenge with more Design Team inspiration, and a look at some of your artwork. Until then, we look forward to seeing lots more entries from you. If you have any questions, and cannot find the answers on the blog pages, please send a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this post; you will see it after the comments section.
