Challenge #203 - "Complimentary" Colours

We all have them - those items of clothing that we gravitate to because they are comfortable and we look good in them. And often, if we look at our favourite clothes, they have a distinct colour palette, too! We're drawn to certain colours and we often get compliments when we wear them.  Our challenge this time, by the creative Amy Jasper, is a "Fill In The Blank" Challenge with "My favourite colour to wear is  __________." Just fill in the blank and then make a project based on that colour or colours. Let us know in your post how you filled in the blank! And just wait for those compliments to flood in!



                   

And what colours are favourites of our Design Team?

I love to wear orange. It makes me happy.
For the month of June, Amy has been incredibly busy taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge, raising money to help kids and their families fighting cancer. She has a goal of raising $1500 and cycling 750 km. Give her a boost by going to her website and cheering for her and helping her reach her goals. As Amy says, "Kids should be living life, not fighting for it!" Click HERE



My favourite colours to wear are peach/coral and aqua!

Winners for Challenge #202 - Radiant

We're glowing! We loved your entries for our colour challenge #202 so much, that our faces are reflecting the corals and yellows of your designs.... uh no, wait! That's from the full moon this week. Anyway, we had our typical debate picking the most radiant of all of your lovely entries and here they are:


Our Top Pick is: Nora from A Creative Touch





The Design Team were awed by how radiant her stenciled flowers looked and we loved the way she picked up the colours again in the Happy sentiments! And the contrast with the birthday die cut pulled everything together! Masterful, Nora!                                                                            

And our Featured Artist is: Karen Ksenzakovic



Karen just nailed this colour challenge, using the colours as a sunset silhouette. And the scene she created is so beautiful with the cyclist by the lake with the sunset reflected in it! Gorgeous! The Design Team were blown away by the precise stamping done by Karen for the silhouettes, especially with such an intense ink colour! She designed a card that conveys such serenity! Well done!                                                   

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new fill in the blank challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

Challenge #202 - Radiant

The flowers in this inspiration photo remind me of a plant we have in this part of the world that we used to call a rock rose when we were kids, but the correct name is bitterroot. Although the flowers were pink, not yellow, they had the same luminous quality. And when the ground was covered with them, during their bloom, it looked radiant! So that's what we're calling this colour challenge, put together by the brilliant Jan Clothier, which consists of colours of the sunrise plus a dark forest colour as contrast - Radiant! Let your radiance shine forth, crafters!




Let's see how the Design Team radiated:










Jane Knudsen



LeAnne Pugliese


You may remember for our 200th challenge, the reward for the Featured Artist for that challenge was to join us as a Guest Designer for our 202nd Challenge. The winner was Heather Heroldt and we are so pleased and excited to welcome her as our Guest Designer today!                           







Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Stampin' Up! colours are used for reference but any matching colours are welcome. You can use black/neutral for outlines and sentiments but don’t use any other colours.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI202 when uploading to a public gallery.

Winners for Challenge #201 - Pivotal

We were so happy to have you make the pivotal decision to circle back to our Challenge page and enter our first challenge post Amanda's designing. We were very stoked to get your beautiful entries and after circling around the final decision for a bit, we were ready to settle on our winners.  Here they are:


Our Top Pick is: A Stampin' Holiday





The Design Team really loved this sketch done in whites and light greens! It gave it such a bright and airy, sophisticated look! The script background added to the glamour, while the gold text complimented that! This project nailed the sketch!                                                                             

And our Featured Artist is: Anita Trippi


Anita created a truly unique take on our sketch this week with a swath of coloured embossing paste for the vertical element and a unique ribbon border on the bottom that is so cool! She also created her own striped paper from a stamp. Done in shades of blue with a little yellow, this card stole the hearts of the Design Team this week! Well done, Anita!                                                          

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new colour challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
