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 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:
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.
Marga's beautiful blended background creates a lovely backdrop for the large focal flower. Notice the crackle element too:
We hope that you enjoy the new challenge, and we look forward to seeing your projects,
