A New Colour Challenge over at Chocolate Baroque

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well this week.   We continue to be very busy here, I'll explain in a post sometime soon.  

I'm pleased to advise that Chocolate Baroque will be hosting a new Colour Challenge each month, starting today.  You will find the new blog and all the details here along with inspiration from DT Members.

Here is the first colour challenge:



Below is sample that I created in a simple style.    I have a design for the challenge that will be shown next week.  



CB Stamps used:   Harlequin Fragments, Artistic Affirmations along with TCW Coffee Splotch stencil, circle masks created with circle dies and Distress Inks.

I hope you can join in the fun !
Have a great day,
Shirley

A lovely CAS card with great use of all the colours, and the sentiment is so appropriate too. How great to have a colour challenge over at CB every month, and I'm sure it will be very popular. x

I LOVE these colors! And your card is lots of fun! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!

Shirley, the 2nd room has stamps, dies and a bunch of other real messy plastic bins. If it weren't so dreadfully chaotic, I'd show some pictures of that room too. It has to also have seating furniture too, so I can't just make it a stamp room! Glad if you enjoyed seeing the space, and I'll share it again - if & when - I get it organized better. Thx for your visit & comment.
