Make It Colourful Celebration Time

Make it Crafty is turning ONE!!

Woohooo – The celebrations have begun at Make it Crafty!!!

We are excited today to be sharing this celebration with Quixotic Paperie who are celebrating their second birthday and were the very first company to take on the Make it Crafty line of stamps, laser cut embellishments and now the Make it Colour blending card.

To celebrate we thought, rather than a blog hop we would set a CHALLENGE using Make it Crafty products!! To get inspired, hop on over to the Make it Colourful Challenge Blog where you will see the amazing creations our fabulous DT’s have created for this event! PLUS you find out all the details on how you can play along and all the news about the PRIZES, blog candy and specials that are on offer!! And keep checking the Make it Crafty blog HERE for more fun during July.

Quixotic Paperie have a little something for you too!! Make sure you pop on over there to enter your name for a chance at MORE Make it Crafty Goodies!!

Our challenge has five categories with a grand prize for each category....

1. Merge as many images as you can
2. The most creative combination of images
3. Rubber stamps only
4. Chipboard Only (no image)
5. Colour using the MiC Logo colours – blue/mustard/yellow and brown

I came up with two cards for category 2. Creative combination of images

I came up with the idea for this one when I was talking to someone about the fact that I had tickets for the midnight session of the final Harry Potter movie on the day of it's release - yup I'm a HP tragic - LOL. My scene has two "teens" sitting around daydreaming and chatting about THEIR movie hero - Jacob from the Twilight movies. Why is this unusual??? How many teens have fairies as friends - LOL.

Now here's the first card I started for this challenge - and it nearly didn't make it onto my blog as I was a little worried poor ol' Aussie Santa was coming across all wrong and I put it away and got on with the previous card - LOL. My original merging had Vixie a lot smaller and it made Santa look a bit like a dirty ol' man! So I made her a little bigger and gave him brown hair so maybe I've gotten away with it - what do you think - LOL.

Images used...
First card - Sophie Daydreaming, Vixie, Rise and Shine, Comfy Chair, Team Jacob poster from the web.
