Blue Bird

Blue Bird 2012

I have a card to show you, it is for our Challenge #47 at Color Me Creative. The challenge this time is all about NAVY BLUES/DARK BLUE. I have to be honest I found this challenge not so much fun. I did end up doing a total of 3 cards and I really was not happy with any of them. If you know me I have to get my Birds and Bloom magazine out and look up the blue bird so I tried to get the bird as close to the picture as I could. Not thinking I should of colored the blossoms blue not pink as the image is to be mostly NAVY BLUES. At this point I was NOT GOING TO COLOR ANOTHER IMAGE. So please if you do enter a card you need to color your image mostly in NAVY BLUES.

This is a sample for you to get an idea of the NAVY BLUES. I just love the picture. We are being sponsored by Sweet & Sassy and you can win some of their images. The image I used is called BLUE BIRD. I bet you are surprised!!! Our challenge ends July 20th.


-Use any image you want BUT MAKE SURE YOU LINK BACK TO THE CMC CHALLENGE in your blog post!!


-Image MUST be colored with Copics, ProMarkers, other alcohol markers or Colored Pencils!

-NO more than 3 projects may be entered

UPLOAD YOUR ENTRIES to the Photo Gallery and TAG them with the word NAVY so they can be seen easily!

I'm so glad you could join us for The Outlawz blog hop. I do hope everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for all  the lovely comment. If you try my card and have any questions please feel free to ask any questions and if you do make my card PLEASE let me know because I would love to see it. I want to stop by everyone’s blog and personally thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave a comment.

I’m so exited next week is The CHA Convention in Chicago (Rosemont, Illinois) (Craft and Hobby Association). If you have never been to one is a large convention where all the different crafting companies come together and bring all the NEW products that are going to be coming out, they do classes (a lot), you get to meet all kinds of people from all over, what I just love is their will be people that I have been talking to (for years) from my blog, challenges, design teams and the different community that we join I will get a chance to meet them. So I will be gone July 16- July 20. I will let you know any thing I find out and take pictures so I can share them.. I have been working on all the cards for the challenges that need to post while I’m gone so I’ve been working very hard to stay up on things. Thanks for stopping by. Be safe!
