Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #24

Hello, friends. Here's another one of those late catch-up posts from me. I have been away and then I came home to heaps of internet troubles.

So, here I am saying: Welcome to another month of Chocolate Baroque inspired fun -  Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #24, which started last Wednesday on June 15th. We have a lovely colour swatch for you to use in your projects.  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.

There's something magical and mysterious about this colour combo, I just love it. And here is my card for this challenge. The background is created entirely out of distress inks. I used Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw for the sky. For the hills I used Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender and Black Soot. The trees are from the Fantasy Woodland A4 sheet, stamped with Archival Black ink. The sentiment is from the Words of Comfort and Cheer A5 sheet, also stamped with Archival Black ink.

To create the moon, I die cut a circle mask and then slapped on tons of Clear Wink of Stella for the shimmery effect. It's actually quite impressive IRL. The birds are from Landscape Edges A5 sheet.

Challenge #24 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 19th July 2016, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 27th July 2016. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thank you for all your encouraging comments. I'll see you again tomorrow with a Christmas card ... I'll be on time... promise!
