Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Hopefully after last month, you will be accustomed to our leaner look blog, with just three posts a month. We will be posting twice at the beginning of each month to announce the new challenge, and the following week to share who has won the previous challenge, then again right at the end of each challenge to review some of your wonderful entries into the current challenge. It has been a hard decision to cut back the number of blog posts, but unfortunately, it has been so time-consuming preparing weekly blog posts, we hope that you will understand why we have made the cut backs. We will still have some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team in each of our blog posts, and hope that you will keep up with us on Facebook as well. Thank you as always for your support and comments on the blog each month, we really appreciate your visits.
We will be announcing the winner of Challenge Thirty-Two 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 Random.org from all of the entrants who have used Chocolate Baroque stamps currently availalable 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 fabulous new colour swatch for you this month, and we will be sharing some stunning inspiration from the Design Team over the coming weeks. Here is this month's colour swatch for the new challenge:
Asha has created a pretty floral card, her flowers are set against a glowing background and are coloured beautifully.
Anne's lovely card incorporates the gorgeous Big Bold Background, which marries perfectly with the Rose Stem Script image.
Claire has used one of the Pink Pig journals to create her project, and used it with the rings at the top, allowing her to have the book standing open as a decorative piece of artwork. She plans to create several projects in the journal and change the open page regularly.
Magda's softly coloured card has been created with Pan Pastels. The delicate background creates a lovely backdrop for the vibrant crocuses.
Finally, Vronnie's delightful scenic card incorporates a mixture of Spring-themed stamps.
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. You can get in touch by sending a private message, details are at the end of this post, below the comments section.
We hope that you enjoy the new challenge and look forward to seeing your projects,
