colourQ challenge #134...


Ready for some new colors? I know I am - LOL! Thank you all again for playing last week, make sure you check out this week's colourQueen and Courtiers on this post. The colors were a bit hard last week, but you gals really rocked them!!!

Our inspiration today comes from this really cool Oarfish and Eel Ceramic Wall Art on Etsy at cephalopodink! Isn't it awesome?!? I loved these colors the minute I saw it!

Here's my sample...


We have some sad news today.... our beloved, super awesome, super talented Christina is stepping down! I am going to miss her like crazy!!! She is just so sweet and nice, and all her cards are phenomenal, it's so sad to see her go.... BUT she isn't falling off the face of the earth (thank goodness) so be sure to go bookmark her site so you can keep up with her! I know she has some exciting things in her future! We love you & thank you so much for spending the last 16 months with us!


And here's some inspiration from the Royal Court to rev your engines...

Time to get your "craft" on!


ENTRY DEADLINE is SUNDAY, April 29th at 12 noon CST, to be considered for colourQueen! If you miss the deadline but still want to link up, InLinkz will re-open the next day, so you can play with any of the previous colors anytime. You must be linked before the deadline to be in the running for colourQueen, though!

PLEASE use the palette provided for your project! 

You'll notice that a few of our designers use colors similar to the SU! colors listed in the palettes - just try to keep it close!

Please display our palette badge, but at the VERY least, you MUST put a link in your post back to this challenge~ Thank you!

Using InLinkz, link to the actual post/gallery page your project is in, and select the thumbnail image of your project. Any mis-linked entries are subject to deletion, but I'll try to let you know if there's a problem!

*** Just so you know, InLinkz is not fool-proof, some of you may not be able to post the thumbnail of your card... if not, link your profile picture. But if you CAN post the thumbnail of your card, please do! If I have time I will go back & 'fix' the Inlinkz for those of you who cannot get your project thumbnail to post, oky-doky? If I do "fix" it for you, your thumbnail may be moved to a different position on the entry list ***


Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week!
