CHALLENGE #8 - COLOUR INSPIRATION

Congratulations to last week's winners. We hope you had fun and will join us again this week for Challenge #8 - a colour challenge using a lovely bright and colourful photograph I took in Cape Town, South Africa, recently, during the International Oriental Dance festival at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Waterfront. The photograph shows the dancers from the Belly Button Dance Studio, performing an Eqyptian cane dance to the song "Sori Sori". Just look at all those colours to inspire you!

Now that's not too difficult to do, is it? JUST REMEMBER, if you use an image from Pattie's Creations, you will get an extra entry to win! Stop over at her Etsy Store and browse around. There are some FREEBIES to use for this challenge, just click on the link on the Top Menu Bar and grab one.
The members of Design Team 2 have created some wonderful inspirations for this week's challenge, and they love to receive your comments, so click on their names to view their blogs.
A winner will be chosen by Random.org. The winner will receive a $10.00 credit towards the purchase at Pattie's Etsy Store and an 'I Won' badge.

A second winner for the 'Allie's Choice Award' will be chosen by the DT Leads and can proudly display our badge on their sidebar.

The challenge starts now and ends Thursday, December 16th at 1PM CST (Central Time).
Now let's see what this week's DT has for your inspirations.

Cleota has used Patties image Snowman 1 and created a beautiful Christmas card using the rich burgundy shades in the photograph.


Using Pattieboop and Allie in a Christmas Stocking image, Gloria has also created a cute Christmas card. The green of that beautifully glittery ribbon just pops off the page!


Gymnast Pattieboop 2 is the image Lauretta has used to create this wonderful card by taking full advantage of the multicolours she has recreated in the organza ribbons! Wow, Lauretta – you had fun creating this one!


A very creative Natacha has altered a can made a wrapper using Pattieboop and Alllie waiting for Santa and created a really fun alternative to Christmas wrapping. What a clever idea, Natacha!



Rhonda is recovering from surgery and was unable to make a card this week, so we have left her a bouquet of roses as a “get well soon…. we miss you!” gift.

I used Pattie’s 150 member freebie, Cowgirl Pattieboop, and added two metal boots as embellishments to create a pretty card any little girl would love!


So now you've seen how easy-peasy this challenge is, let's see what you can create for us this week! Please link to your Post, not your blog to the Inlinkz below.

Good luck, and remember to have fun with the riot of colours in the inspiration photograph!

Thank You!

… Happy Creating …
JenLee - Lead Designer for Pattie's Creations Design Team 2
