Challenge 20, Week Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to our final week of Challenge Twenty on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for your support and lovely comments throughout the month, we really enjoy reading what you have to say. We hope that you have been enjoying the challenge, and the DT inspiration this month. There is still plenty of time to enter, and you can add your projects to the link in this post.

This week, we are taking a look at a few of the entries that we have received for the current challenge, and showcasing them on the blog.

Sue created a soft and magical fairy landscape, while still keeping within the colour palette.

Janny's steampunk owl, on a super textured background is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face:
Hellen's beautiful encaustic wax card is enough to encourage anyone to want to learn a new skill, it showcases the tulip stamps beautifully:
Sharon's CAS card showcases the lovely lace flower, using embossing as a resist, with white accents:
 Lesley's striking card on the other hand, is balanced by black and is stunning with the small stamped tiles around the central sentiment.
We have a free download from Lesley this week, a truly gorgeous paper that we know you will love. Please do not pass the image onto others, but send them back here to collect the freebie for themselves.

To obtain your free download, please click on the image below. Once you have enlarged the image on your computer screen, right click the image, choose the option 'Save As', and save the image to your computer. You can now print the image onto a variety of surfaces for your crafting projects.

The Design Team have been making some stunning projects for your inspiration using the free download. Claire has made this absolutely beautiful floral card:
Anne has made an amazing mixed media piece:
Dominike has used our latest Babushka stamps and created a little tag using the download, such a lovely idea:
She has also created one last piece of inspiration using this month's challenge colours for you, mixing the Babushka stamps and one of our older stamps, and created a little scene:
Thank you so much girls for your lovely projects. We hope that they will inspire you to use Lesley's download paper to make something yourself. If you do make something using one of Lesley's downloads, please share it with us by uploading it to our Facebook page, we would love to see what you create.

We will be back next week with a brand new challenge, but hope to see lots more entries for the current challenge in the meantime. Don't forget, if you have any questions, and cannot find the answers on the blog pages, please send us a private message using the contact form located at the very end of this post; you will see it after the comments section.
