Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you for your support throughout the month, we really appreciate your visits to the blog, and love reading your lovely comments. We will be announcing the winner of Challenge Twenty-Three next week, so if you entered the challenge last month, please be sure to check the announcement 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 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 blog.
We have a fabulous new colour palette for you to use this month, and some beautiful inspiration from the Design Team, which we will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:
Anne's project incorporates some of the Punky Flowers against a vibrant background, and an inspirational sentiment:
Julie has used one of the individual cling mounted stamps, Ophelia, and created a sunray effect background to surround the image, adding glitter for some shimmer.
Vronnie's Brusho backgrounds, and black matting create a very dramatic feel to her card:
I have created a card using images from a paisley stamp set to create a butterfly, with a stencilled background.
Thank you so much girls for your inspiration using the new challenge colours. We hope that they will encourage you to create something yourselves, using your own crafting materials, and join in with 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, Judith xx
