Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #20

Hello, friends! It's Week 2 over at  Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #20. We have a spicy colour swatch for you to use in your projects: four red hot colours. If you haven't played yet, now's the time to do so.

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you stick to the colours from the colour swatch, using as much or as little of each colour as you wish.  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.

Here's a little something I created to get you in the mood. I'm using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Fluttering Hearts A5 sheet. For the background I blended a few Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Barn Door, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Fossilised Amber, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade ... The blending stopped when I ran out of daylight! :)

I stamped the image with VersaFine: Onyx Black for the butterfly and Crimson Red for the heart and sentiment. And there's lashings of Wink of Stella Gold Brush Tip on the butterfly.

Challenge #20 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 15th March 2016, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 23rd March 2016. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by - I really do appreciate for sweet comments. Have an amazing day and I'll see you again in a day or two. Until then, take care and stay warm!


7 months ago today at 11:45am my André got his angel wings. Two days ago at 11:30pm it was 10 months since my Rosie got hers. Soon it will be a year, then 2 and 3 ... but to me it will always feel just like yesterday. This song by Heart called Dog & Butterfly has always been one of my favourite by the Wilson sisters... more so now than ever.

  14. this card is a stunner Asha! I love how well you blended the colours. What did you use to blend the colours? Your angels are always with you and hits is such a loving tribute. I would have been here before but my hubby went to get the router changed so we could have a new password. It didn't work so for two days I had no internet here. the good news is I bought an IPad! Now all works and I can keep up with everything. Wallace says woof
