Fashionista Friday #42

Where did July go?? Is it over already??? LOL! Hope y'all stayed busy during our vacation, I know I did! We are all moved into a new house and my craft room is up and running again! Time for a brand new color challenge! But first....let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all your entries for our extended vacation challenge....wowzers! Totally amazing! It was much too difficult to pick just one, so this time we will have a pair of Shoes of the Week! The pair of beauties are:

Sarah T with this fabulous card...I just LOVE the colored scene, and the seashells!

and Chris V with this beautiful lighthouse! love it!

Congratulations ladies! Feel free to pick up our Shoe of the Week badge for your blogs!!!

And now for today's brand new color challenge. We are going to try something different for our Color challenges, but it is just a teeny little change, and in all actuality, nothing will REALLY change....
The color challenges will now be based off of copic colors. There are so many copics out there in so many fabulous colors, we will be using copic shades as our color combos. This does NOT mean you have to use copics on your creations. We are just using their names and shades for our example. Now if you WANT to use the corresponding copics, go for it! But if not, just use the general shade shown. For is this weeks color challenge:

color swatch-001

This could just be interpreted simply as 'purple, brown, and light grey'! Make sense? So, copic or not, this is your color challenge for this week! Check out our DT interpretations:




With no further ado....let's see what you can do with these colors!!! Leave your direct link to your new projects below. Hope to see everyone back with us after our creations, thanks for your patience, and have a great weekend!
