Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #15

A new Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge has started and we're kicking off this monthly meet-up with another collection of gorgeous colours. If you haven't played yet, now's the time to do so. These colours are gorgeous and will work for any occasion.

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you keep to the colours from the colour swatch. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display winner's badge on their blog.

I made a CASish Halloween card. This simple design can be easily reproduced. The focal image and sentiment are from last year's Halloween release called Things That Go Bump In The Night. I cut and matted the image using Spellbinder dies. The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Smokey Grey, cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die and inked with Scattered Straw DI. I inked the card base with Hickory Smoke DI and dotted with Black Stickles.

I heat embossed the focal image with WOW Ebony EP and coloured the moon with Faber-Castell Polychromos. Then I inked the background with Hickory Smoke DI.

Challenge #15 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 20th October 2015, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 28th October 2015. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

It's 21 weeks today since Rosie left and on Friday it will be 8 weeks since we said goodbye to André. To be honest, I am looking forward to when I can think of them without chocking. Soon, I hope.

Thank you for stopping by today. It's a dull and gloomy day so far. Hope the sun is shining brightly where you are.



  1. Hello dear Asha! :) Wow!! That is such a cool image! I love your combination of colors along with the gentle coloring! So excited to see you playing with us my friendThanks for sharing your creation with us at Addicted to Stamps & More! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*-DT member!

  2. I agree with Vicki: a cool image that has just the right amount of 'spooky' without being too scary! Black and yellow: a winning combination. Sending hugs to you in missing your sweet pets; enjoy the memories of their companionship and know that they are with you. As for choking up: you're allowed to do that whenever and for as long as you need. We understand!
