Challenge 29, Week Three

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. We hope that you are enjoying the current challenge and the inspiration provided by the Design Team. For those of you visiting the blog for the first time, do check out the information on the blog, especially the tabs at the top of the page, where you should be able to find all of the answers to your questions. Here is the colour swatch for this month's challenge:

You can find a link to the current challenge here, where you can add your entries at the end of the post. This week we are sharing more inspiration from the Design Team.

Magda has created a bold floral tag, incorporating one of our newest stamps:
Anne has created a lovely Christmas card with one of our recent Christmas images:
She has very kindly written a tutorial so that you can have a go at making this card yourselves.


Christmas Post single stamp
6" x 6" white card blank, white stamping card, white pearlescent card
Versafine inkpad (Vintage Sepia)
Watercolour pencils (green, red, brown, gold)
Wax crayons (light gold, dark brown)
Fine-tipped permanent pen (brown)
Glossy Accents
Chunky 'glass' glitter and clear glitter glue
Winter themed frame die
Foam pads or 3D glue


Cut decorative frame frrom pearlescent card. If you don't have a suitable decorative die, a plain frame looks nice and you could decorate it with winter foliage or snowflakes (die cut or ready made).
Stamp the image and cut out to fit behind the frame. Extend the scene on the left and right by drawing with the fine pen.
Draw onto the bricks with wax crayons to give some areas of texture. The wax resists the watercolour. Colour the image with watercolour pencils. Use a damp brush to pull out and blend the colour.
Stamp the branches onto the card blank.
Mount the topper and frame with foam pads or 3D glue.
Finish with chunky glitter and glitter glue. Add Glossy Accents to the tree baubles.

Thanks so much Anne for a super tutorial. 

We hope that the projects we have shown you this week will inspire you to join in with the challenge yourselves. We will be back next week with another post, and more projects for you.
