November 2014 "White with a Twist" Challenge...


We have decided to go back to our cocktails this month for our "White with a Twist" November Challenge...
So welcome to our November colour inspiration Challenge everyone!
This month we want you to use White combined with the colours in this yummy looking cocktail.

So the challenge is:
Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard.

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

We have Karen McLaughlin with her absolutely 

beautiful creation!! 
Karen has been inspired to use white cardstock with just a little printed paper, lots of flowers and chipboard which she has coloured to suit her creation.

October 2014 "White with a Twist" Blog Challenge...

Continuing this month with the "WHITE WITH A TWIST" Challenge for our October challenge.....BUT to help brighten our days and celebrate the warmer "Spring" weather we are changing our inspiration photo to something fresh and pretty!!!

So welcome to our October picture inspiration Challenge everyone!
This month we want you to use White combined with the colours in this "Spring" themed photo.

So the challenge is:
Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard.

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints. 

You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory, however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.

You can use as little or alot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.

Rules: 
Create a layout following the above criteria
 After you have created a LO for the challenge please upload it to your blog, online gallery or Facebook page - 
make sure you mention us and link back to our blog challenge.  Then add your challenge link to us using the correct Mister Linky on the right hand side of our BLOG.

 We have Karen McLaughlin with her absolutely 
beautiful creation!!
Karen has been inspired by printed paper, lots of flowers and chipboard which she has coloured to suit her creation.

Karens Tip for you: To colour chipboard first paint with gesso, wait until dry and then use the versacolor ink pads (lots in stock) to give the colour required. A lot less messier than paint and sprays.
