We have some lovely seasonal stamps from Chocolate Baroque for our lucky winner to use on their Christmas creations.
Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton. Our resident artist, Sue Page, works from her home in Hampshire where she is inspired, amongst other things, by the natural world, botanical art and early 20th century illustration.

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!
