Challenge 34, Week Four

Hello everyone, and welcome to the final week of Challenge Thirty-Four on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you so much for your visits and comments throughout the month, we really appreciate your support. We hope that you have been enjoying the current challenge. There is still plenty of time to enter, and be in with a chance of winning a £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque. You can find all of the details, and add your entries in this post.

This week, we are taking a look at some of the fabulous entries that we have received for the Challenge so far.

Celia's pretty fairy card incorporates a scene built up using several stamps, dimensional flowers, and a handmade background:

Debbie has entered twice this month, returning from a break, and she has given us two fabulous entries. The first, is a steampunk based card incorporating a beautiful peacock, and oriental flowers. She has created a beautiful layered background:
Her second card is a fabulous watery creation, with lots of detail, again mixing a bit of steampunk into the design. This time, the teal colour is strongest amongst the challenge colours:
Annie has created a lovely vibrant card, set against a dramatic dark background, to show off the btight colours:
Carole has demonstrated how to use a Christmas image in a non-seasonal way for her softly coloured card. The image has been stamped onto a wooden heart, and set against a pretty floral background.

Another Christmas image has been used by Kate, and again been used as so that it can be given at any time of the year. By masking off a small section of the image, it becomes multi-purpose.

Leanne has cleverly used water to bleach away colour from the image, and her background to create a beautiful project. She has mixed stamps from several sets to produce this lovely, dreamy card:

Finally, one of Sandra's entries for this month, is a stunning tag. She has used lace pressed onto her gelli plate to create a patterned background, and used the challenge colours to create a fabulous graduated effect around the edges of her tag.

We have more inspiration from the Design Team for you this week.

Claire has created a page in her journal, she has used a mixture of Christmas images to create a delightful scene:

Magda's project is a quirky steampunk card, mixing stamps and stencils. A great detail is the way the stencil spreads over the top layer onto the card itself.

We have a floral offering from Vronnie this month; a beautiful Brusho background, and stunning blue roses.

 Finally, I have made a card using some long unused stamps, Distress Inks, and water based markers. I have created a sunset sky for a bird silhouette stamp, and added a lovely motivational saying, just right for sending words of encouragement to someone. You can see full details on my blog.

We will be back next week with a brand new challenge, but we hope to see lots more entries from you in the meantime. If you have any questions, but 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.
