Colour Me...! Creative - Week 5 - with a GIVEAWAY!

Hey friends, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for another awesome challenge at Colour Me...!  This week, since it's the 5th week of the month you choose any 5 colors you want to work with.  This made me think of a rainbow color combination so I decided to make my own watercolor background.

My 5 colors: Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise 

Here's this week's inspiration photo:

Check out the great inspiration from the other team members and link up your creations, too!  I can't wait to see your goodies in the gallery!

And the giveaway is still going on:

My best friend and fellow Simon Says Stamp card kit enthusiast, Krista made a goof and accidentally ordered 2 kits this month. Well, her oops is going to be someone's gain.  I missed my blog-iversary but let's celebrate this online shopping error with a GIVEAWAY!

I have one Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit to give away and it's filled with lots of great goodies.  All you need to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment anywhere on my blog before Sunday February 2 at Noon (PST).   I will choose a random winner for this awesome prize! Spread the word :)  Good Luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by, keep it crafty!

    1. Hey Angelina, thanks for the sweet comment! To make the background I used watercolor paper, then smooshed versamark through a polka dot stencil and embossed the dots in white. Then watercolored right over the top of it. :) Thanks for asking!
