Color Challenge PLUS

It's time for our first color challenge of the new year (with a twist), but first, THANK YOU to everyone who has already played last week's "something new" challenge. I think we may have set a record for number of participants, and you have all month to keep linking up your submissions! Just remember to use Close To My Heart products in some way in your project.


The first part of this week's challenge is to use the beautiful CTMH colors Crystal Blue and Amethyst on your artwork. The plus part of the challenge (should you choose to accept it) is to add some glitter to your artwork. This week also introduces our second string of Heart 2 Heart designers, our Team B, so let them inspire you, beginning with this month's talented guest designer, Jami.










Now it's your turn! Let's see your creations using the Close To My Heart colors Crystal Blue and Amethyst. Take it to the next level with some sparkly glitter too!

How did you know that the project that I have been working on has crystal blue, amethyst and glitter? Now I need to get it finished! Thanks for the challenge.

Great inspiration. I've noticed in the last two challenges that some of the links aren't working right. I click on them, get a microsecond of connection to the blog, and then my screen goes blank. I was not able to connect with Carla's blog this week and about five or six from last week. Is it just me, or is anyone else having trouble?

Mary said...

Yes I've had the same thing happen Becca. I am thinking it's a blog issue. Best way to resolve it is, when the screen is blank, go to the URL at the top of the page and remove everything in the address after the .com part. That will take you to the blog owner's main blog page but you should be able to find their post easily enough from there.

What a pretty color combination you gave us to work with this week!

Love these colors. I'm not a glitter person but I thank you for the opportunity to use my retired glitter brads. I'm trying to use my old stuff to make room for the new. Thanks for all your beautiful creations this week.
