Hello everyone, and welcome to the final week of Challenge Thirty on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you so much for your visits and lovely comments throughout the month, especially when you have been so busy throughout the Christmas period, we appreciate your support, and really enjoy reading what you have to say. 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 add your entries to the link in this post.
We are taking a look this week at some of the entries we have received for the challenge so far.
Alice's pretty floral card incorporates a beautiful graduated embossed background, stunning large flowers as a focal point, and butterfly embellishments to complete the project:
Carole's elegant Art Nouveau themed card is a very eye-catching design, with the fabulous stencil in the background, and partial stamping to create a border at the top and bottom of the card:
Finally, Kate's pretty card, using the lovely honeysuckle image against the white embossed background is a lovely design. The shaped card blank adds another dimension, without the need for layers.
Vronnie is going to introduce herself to you, and reveal a bit more about herself.
The rot set in, I bought a few more, discovered crafting on TV, first Jayne Nesterenko and then Glenda Waterworth- quilling was forgotten, and my mitts became very colourful again- I seem to have an almost magnetic attraction for ink.
I was thrilled to win a place as a Guest Designer two years ago, which taught me a lot, and I was really over the moon when invited to join the team itself last year. As a very messy crafter, I have had to learn to keep stamp sets together instead of dumped in the nearest plastic box- the sales of stamp storage sheets have soared since then! I still have boxes of orphan stamps to sort out, and a very untidy craft area- every attempt at sorting it out properly ends up with larger heaps than before and not being able to find anything!
My Husband swears stamps are taking over the house, and my Son couldn't believe his eyes when he found a box of Brusho powders in the bathroom recently!
It is harder work sometimes than it sounds being on the DT, and I am totally in awe of those who manage to be on several teams, but it is great fun, and the girls are a fab bunch of people to work with.
Thank you Vronnie for your biography, your craft room sounds just like mine! It was great to get to know you a little better.
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, and 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.
