Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #25: Chocolate

Welcome to another month of Chocolate Baroque inspired fun -  Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #25. This is very special challenge because it is the Second Anniversary of the Challenge.

And to make our Birthday Bash extra special, we will not be having our usual colour swatch. Instead, we are going with a theme that is close to our hearts:


That's right, folks! It is going to be a month-long feast of CHOCOLATE. Your projects can be in any format, cards, tags, mixed media, scrapbook pages, whatever you like, as long as there is a chocolate somewhere in your project: white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate.... let your imagination run wild as long as you incorporate the chocolate theme in your projects. You don't have to limit yourself to brown. Think about chocolate flavours like mint, strawberry or orange, but always tie it back to a bit of chocolate to your design.

As always, 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 £25 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.

It's easy to see the chocolate connection on my card. I'm using the rich warm, unctuous colours of the stuff that makes me happy. Ok... the little critters are rather cute too. I've stamped the owl from Owl Edges A5 sheet onto kraft CS with VersaFine Vintage Sepia. The sentiment is from Words Of Wisdom, heat embossed with WOW White EP. For the grassy bits in the background I used a stamp from the Teeny Weeny Meadow A6 Mini Multi-buy set.

I coloured the owls with Faber Castell Polychromos.

Challenge #25 will close at 12.00 p.m. (UK) on Tuesday 16th August 2016, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 24th August 2016. I hope you'll play along and run the risk of winning £25 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a sweet day!
