Exciting News!

Hi Folks, I hope you have all seen the rumblings going on by now at The Design Team Blog and hints of something new about to happen. Well today is the day that it all starts! Chocolate Baroque has its very own challenge blog, and you can find it right here

It is a monthly challenge blog, starting on the third Wednesday of every month at 8.00 a.m. with an inspirational photo and a colour swatch. You can make anything that you like, and if you use Chocolate Baroque stamps, you stand a chance of winning £15 to spend at the Chocolate Baroque website. Anyone using stamps from other companies will be entered into the draw for the Top Three and can display a badge on their blog if they are chosen as a winner.

I have made a tag using the colours from the inspirational photo to help inspire you. I have used Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Festive Berries Distress Inks to create my background. I have used some texture paste through a Crafters Workshop stencil to add some interest. I then added three butterflies which I coloured with pencils to tone in with the main colours.

So take a look at the new challenge blog, make a project and enter the challenge, and enjoy crafting. Thanks for stopping by, xx

your pencil colouring of the butterflies looks splendid over the top of the inked background & I especially love the way the red close to the butterflies' bodies echoes the red stencilled motif in the background. The pale blue of the textured butterfly is picked up superbly by the stamped butterflies' wings too.
