Challenge 2 - Colour Combo

Firstly THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH for all the positive comments we've had since we started the challenge and for all your entries - 20 is not at all a bad number for the first challenge - let's see if we can beat it this time shall we?   But before we give you the deets on that one, we need to award badges (and this time out prizes) to our first ever winners......

The overall winner and No1 Fan this time was Miriam Pranter with this interactive rocket card - we loved how the shape in the sketch was echoed by the route the rocket takes and the inked background is superb!  Congrats on being our first ever winner Miriam.

Please take your winners badge for your blog and drop me an email at "craftilicious at rocketmail dot com"  and I'll send you the code you need to access your £20 voucher at Waltzingmouse Stamps


It was very tough to choose our runners up - you all made some fabulous cards based on our sketch - but after much deliberation our top 3 for this challenge (in numerical order of entry) are :

Pauline - we really loved the creative use of feathers on this CAS design to form the shape in the sketch.

 Kim - well who doesn't love a jar of eyeballs?  Really creative use of the stamps here and it really caught our eye lol ;-)

 Ang - we really loved the layered texture and subtle background colours with the bold pop of the gorgeous focal flowers.

Again - please take your badge for your blog - as well as showing off how great you are it helps spread the word about the challenge (particuarly if you link it up to the challenge site for which we'd be very grateful)

Challenge No 2

We're feeling hot, hot, hot today at Waltzingmouse Fanatics and have this super colour combo as our challenge this fortnight which we think is perfect as the seasons change and Autumn closes in.  You don't have to use all 6 colours in your project but we do ask that you choose at least 3 so we can see that the challenge inspired your project.

You can take these colours forward into any kind of project you like as long as you use a Waltzingmouse stamp or digi-file somewhere so let's see how creative you can be!

Here's a little inspiration from the two of us to get the creative juices flowing.....

Now it's over to you - you have until 5pm GMT on Thursday 3rd October to play along so hopefully plenty of time to get your mojo pumping!   We'll reveal the winners along with the new challenge at 8am on Saturday 5th October.
