Challenge Thirty

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. As we approach Christmas, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas from the Challenge Blog Team.

We will be announcing the winners of Challenge Twenty-Nine 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 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 pretty new colour swatch for you this month, and some stunning inspiration from the Design Team, which we will be sharing over the coming weeks. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. on Tuesday 17th January 2017 and the winner will be announced on Wednesday January 25th 2017. Here are some projects from the Design Team:

Julie's pretty floral card uses clever shading on the background to create a sunray effect. She has created a beautiful floral border to frame her eye-catching focal flower:
Magda's beautiful card is full of texture and detail. Repeat stamping of the main flower has created the feel of flowers against a garden wall:
Finally, Claire's romantic project would make a beautiful Valentine or Anniversary card, she has created a very elegant card, especially with the added gem detail:

Thank you girls for your inspiration using the new challenge colours. We hope that they will inspire you to create something 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 blog post, below the comments section.

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