Challenge Eighteen

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 Seventeen 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 that are currently for sale on the website. We welcome entries incorporating other stamps, 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.

As this is our last challenge of the year, we have chosen a beautiful photo incorporating Glenda's cat Purdy for your inspiration. The colours are very striking, and the Design Team girls have come up with some stunning projects which we will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. We hope that you will be able to find a little bit of time over this busy festive period to join in with the challenge and get creative with us. Here is the colour swatch for the new challenge:

The challenge will close at 12.00 p.m. on Tuesday 19th January 2016, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 27th January 2016. Here are some inspirational projects from the Design Team for you:

Miranda has created a stunning Christmas card and an intricate Art Nouveau themed card:
