Challenge Thirty-Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for all of your lovely comments throughout the month, we really appreciate your visits to the blog, and love reading what you have to say. We will be announcing the winner of Challenge Thirty-Three next week and if you entered the challenge, do be sure to check out the 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 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 bright and cheery new colour swatch for you this month, and we will be sharing some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team over the coming weeks. Here is this month's colour swatch for the new challenge:

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. on Tuesday 16th May 2017, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 24th May 2017. Here are some projects from the Design Team:

Our first project is from Zoe, she has created a background using Distress Inks, using some layering and embossing, with a fussy cut key to complete the card.

The second projects is by Magda, a fabulous ATC, incorporating flowers and harlequins, a great combination.

Julie's background was created by using grated pieces of colour blocks, and adding water. The mini mandala stamps over the top really add to the swirling effect.

Finally, Marga's beautiful blended background creates a lovely backdrop for the large focal flower. Notice the crackle element too:

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 the challenge blog team.
