Winners - Challenge#68 - Theme

Hello all! Our thumbnail display for the School Colours theme was full of primary colours and so many really creative projects. As always, you've made our job to pick a winner really tough, but we did it.


These colours are from Manchester University - Blue, Purple and Gold.
They work perfectly for the coffee theme card - nicely done!

(in order of submission)

This is such a cute good luck card for school. Marina used the colours of her son's primary school.
Lovely texture on the card and the chalkboard letters are just fab!

Margot used the colours from Queen Margaret's School - Yellow, Red and Green.
They are just right for this fun ssssnake!

Bold navy and red are the colours of the University of Arizona.
Really like the image and all that embossed texture.

Congratulations to you all. Please pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs.

Challenge #69 - Technique

Would you like to be part of the SPECtacular Male Room Design Team? Well we're looking to add a few new team mates at the moment. If you'd like to be considered simply create a project - card, scrapbook page, tag, art journal page, ATC, canvas or 3D -  for this new challenge and add DT after your name when you link up.

This DT call will remain open throughout this challenge and the next challenge so there will be another chance to link up with Challenge #70 starting 27th September.

Want to know more about what being on The Male Room  DT involves? Scroll on down to the bottom of this post.

Now for the new challenge. The theme is the ever popular masking technique. We love how this technique gives dimension to images and can't wait to see your projects.

We have the multi talented Ceal joining us as a Guest Designer for this challenge. If you've never visited her blog before you're in for a real treat, she is the most amazing card maker and has inspiration waiting for you by the bucket load. Check it all out HERE.

She's used clever masking to place the astronaut in front of the planet and kept the rest of her card clean and crisp.

All The Male Room DT have also been busy creating to inspire you to play along. Take a look and see if you can spot their masking and then go visit their blogs for all the details.

You have until midnight (BST) Tuesday 26th September, that's 7.00pm EDT in the States. Looking forward to seeing what you create!
