Challenge Nineteen

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new challenge on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog. Thank you so much for your support and comments throughout the month, we really appreciate your visits to the blog, and love reading what you have to say.

We will be announcing the winner of Challenge Eighteen next week, so if you entered a project 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 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 entrants 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.

The challenge colours this month are taken from a much softer selection than last month, and we are using a lovely piece of artwork created by Lesley for your inspiration. The Design Team girls have created some beautiful designs that we will be sharing with you over the coming weeks. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. on Tuesday 16th February 2016, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 24th February 2016. Here are some inspirational projects from the Design Team for you:

Claire has created a pretty card using some of our bird stamps, with matching embellishments:
Zoe has created a fabulous textured wall hanging:

Debbie has been busy creating three cards for your inspiration, a Christmas card, showing that pastels can work all year round, and two pretty floral cards, thank you Debbie!

Thank you so much girls for your inspiration, such a gorgeous selection of projects using the challenge colours. We hope that they will inspire you to rummage through your stash and join in the creativity with us. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our challenge blog team. You can get in touch by sending us a private message. Details are at the end of this blog post, below the comments section.

We hope that you enjoy this new challenge, and look forward to seeing your projects.
