Makin' it COLOURFUL with warm or cool colours! PRIZES to be won!

the Colour Addicts have kicked off!

it's been a long time coming, and today marks our very first challenge for Make it Colourful, the lovely Zoe's newest endeavour. there has been a lot of time, love and labour put into this project, and we Colour Addicts are THRILLED that today has finally arrived! for our very first challenge, we're giving you a CHOICE...

we want to see you create something
using a WARM or COOL colour palette!

you can create anything you'd like - cards, ATCs, altered art, collage, scrapbook pages, journal pages, you name it! all you have to do is COLOUR something, and you're in the running for some FABBY prizes from Make it Crafty!

while i love lots of cool colours, warm colours seem to have a magnetic pull for me, so i opted for that combo... yummy reds and oranges and warm, sunny yellows - certainly nice to think about during a very COLD winter here in South Jersey!

here's my card, using the oh-so-sweet Fluttering Sapphire (minus the wings - i didn't like the green on my card, so i snipped her!):

here she is up close:

(i think i had something a little more EARTHY in mind when i coloured her, but these papers and flower embellies just leapt from my stash when it came time to put my card together)

and some fun Unity goodness:

you KNOW you wanna see what the rest of the Colour Addicts have done with this first assignment, so CLICKIE CLICKIE to check 'em out! seriously, this is an AMAZING team - so talented, unbelievably creative, and we've got a great vibe goin' on! we hope you'll play along, whether you're using a Make it Crafty digi/rubber stamp or not. everyone is welcome!

so spread the word, folks! we are here to COLOUR YOUR WORLD!

OH, and check out my deets HERE if you're curious about what makes an Orange Girl like me tick! :D

  2. so exciting!!! Looking forward to joining in, and learning along the way!

    Love your creation....You always rock these fabby bright colours, this is just stunning, adore the colours and the glitter....and the contrast of that with the monocrome image is just perfect!!!

    Fabulous make, thank you for your inspiration!! Hugs Juls

  3. The flowers are such a cute addition!

  4. She's adorable! LOve how you colored her in dahling... So I have a fifty percent off coupon at Michael's... is it worth using on Prisma pencils? I'm liking using the distressed inks but then sometimes they bleed... And copics, well, I'm getting better with 'em but they're expensive and they RUN OUT!!!!! :) Whaddaya think?

  5. Your card is just the sweetest! Love that image and I think your coloring is fabulous! Have a great weekend! hugs, Angela

  6. Well she won't be flying anywhere in a hurry, she's a hobbled fairy!
    Gorgeous card Leah, that paper is yummy ( DCWV?)

  7. LEAH!!! How on earth did I miss this? I feel absolutely horrible. I went into the yahoo group and saw you had added a photo and then realised it was for the warm and cold challenge and I just don't know what is wrong with me this week. :( I feel so guilty I nearly swelled up.. hmmm hormones maybe. Hun I think it is gorgeous and I just love the paper you used and sapphire looks adorable! Please forgive me. hugs xxoo
