Challenge # 21 – Cast Your Shadows

shirlc June 4, 2011 5

Welcome to another week of COLOURING madness!!

Thank you so much for all the feedback about our new idea over Summer.

What an absolutely fabulous turn out for the Yellow and Purple challenge.
I saw that they were not favourite colours of many so I am happy they were a bit of a challenge and got your experimenting out of your comfort zone!

Be sure to check back on Tuesday to get some feedback and see if you are one of our lucky winners or in our Top 3!


Our fantabulous sponsor this week is….

Some Odd Girl

Below is a wee bit of info about our sponsor:
Some Odd Girl is the place to find fun and quirky digis that I know you will love! Some Odd Girl was inspired by two great friends who are such dolls! They took one of my pencil drawings and made it into red rubber and that act of generosity spiraled into what you see today. I am a married momma of 2 who has a hubby who not only loves me but supports my crafting and my site as my IT guy. What more could a girl want? I am an artist born who started out with pencils then acrylics and now also scrapbook and am a cardmaker. I design things that I love and hope you have as much fun with our stamps as we do!

We’d love to supply the winner with 3 freebies of their choice from our shop so I hope you’ll take a look around and pick your faves!


And the challenge is….



This week we want to see you cast your shadows onto the ground and objects!

    The DT works are phenomenal. Something for all of us to aspire to. Thanks for the fun challenge. Next time I will be brave enough to try a background scenery.
