colourQ challenge #17...


Good morning! Last week was a super big week with 35 entries - let's see if we can't top it!!! Today's inspiration reminded me of Valentine's day in some crazy way... it's a glass pendant from 'designspirit' on Etsy! It's so cool! The colors may seem a bit obtuse, but you know what - that's what makes a good challenge so take the plunge!



Above is my take on the challenge, more info is on my blog. There's obviously a theme going on here... check out these gorgeous samples made by this week's guest designers, LeAnne & Steph! They both rocked this challenge!!!





Please click on either their name or card image to check out their samples and see the rest of their loveley creations! Oh - and you might as well leave a little comment love while you're there!


So now it's your turn, crafty stampers! Using Mister Linky below, please add your name & the direct link to your image! Any mis-linked creations are subject to deletion, but I will try to contact you if I have to delete it, so that you can try again! If Mr. Linky is still having trouble... you can leave a link in a comment, as well! Please have your project uploaded no later Sunday, January 31st at 11: 59 pm Central, if you wish to be considered for the colourQueen of the week. I'll make my pick on 02/01/2010, and post the winner who'll be able to display colourQ's colourQueen badge, and also be a future guest designer!

Hope to see your FAB creation this week!

colourQ challenge #16 ~ Winners Crowned...

OH MY - we had 35 awesome entries last week... I can't believe it! It's funny - reading some of your posts about how uncomfortable you were with these colors, I must say, everyone did such an amazing job!

I picked 2 winners this week. Each of these cards was unique in that they were very simplistic, yet very effectively used the challenge colors. And that is NOT a slight by any means. Neither of these cards is in a style that I would normally attempt! Why? Well one of my art professors said that minimal art is essentially the hardest type of art to pull off - it requires a degree of precise-ness & perfection. When I saw these 2 cards, it reminded me of his words...

So, a VERY BIG CONGRATULATIONS to...



As always, they are both entitled to the colourQueen badge, and will be a future guest designer. Below are thumbnails of all the tremendously inspiring entries. To check out the cards of our winners or everyone's entries, just click on the image of their card. And while you're there, be a sweetie and leave them a super swell comment!



Thanks you all again so much for playing along this week! Please check in tomorrow for our next challenge! We have two vey talented ladies who have prepared projects showcasing next week's challenge colors, I can't wait for you to see them!



Until tomorrow!

colourQ challenge #16...



Here's my take on this week's challenge... aren't these colors YUMMY!?! This week's inspiration comes from artist Susan Sheehan, at Artfire.com. These are handmade lampwork beads, aren't they gorgeous? More info on my card can be found at my blog!


We have 2 very talented guest designers today, Renee & Manda! Thanks so much to these ladies for making such gorgeous samples for you today... clearly you can see how the're excellent skills earned them their places as former colourQueens! Please go visit their blogs either by clicking on their name or the image of their card below, and leave them a super sweet comment!!!




Now it's your turn to show me what you got! Using Mister Linky below, please add your name & the direct link to your image! Any mis-linked creations are subject to deletion, but I will try to contact you if I have to delete it, so that you can try again! If Mr. Linky is having trouble... you can leave a link in a comment, as well! Please have your project uploaded no later Sunday, January 24th at 11: 59 pm Central, if you wish to be considered for the colourQueen of the week. You can play along anytime, however! I'll make my pick on 01/25/2010, and post the winner who'll be able to display colourQ's colourQueen badge, and also be a future guest designer!


Hope you can play along this week!












colourQ challenge #15 ~ Winners Crowned...


Ahh... the long awaited colourQueen winner post~ sorry it took me this long! The 27 entries we had last week were SO AWESOME!!! Each and every one was a work of art, just beautiful! I loved looking through all the entries again today, and narrowing it down to one colourQueen was out of the question... so I hope the following FOUR ladies don't mind reigning together this week, their cards were outstanding!!! Not only have they earned the official badge, but in the future I'll be bugging them to be a guest designer. So a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to:





Please be sure to visit then by either clicking on their name or the image of their cards and leave them a sweet comment!

Here are all the gorgeous entries in order of when they were linked... you can see the full cards by clicking on the thumbnails below. Please go check them out & leave them some comment love as well! They all deserve it!




Thanks again to all of you for your creative, beautiful, inspiring submissions! And thank you for all your well wishes last week when I was having Maisie Grace! She's doing great & we're wokring on our new "routines"... so your patience waiting for this post is most appreciated!

There's still time to enter this week's challenge, if you haven't already! I really look forward to seeing what you crafty gals (and guys!) can do!


Have a terrific Sunday!

THE FINE PRINT
