Make It Colourful - Cool or Warm DT

Yoohoo, its finally arrived! Yep today is the first of the all new and improved challenges at Make It Colourful
and what a great challenge it is for all those out there who like to colour, whether you are a total beginner or more experienced, there will be hints and tips for us all to learn from along the way.

This week we want to see WARM or COOL colours on your projects.

If your not too sure which are warm colours pop over to the challenge site where Zoe has added a colour wheel, but basically the warm colours are the reds, yellows and browns and the cool colours are the blues, greens and mauves. 

For my project I went with the COOL colours. The picture is two images from Make It Crafty Sapphire Sitting and Hidden Chair, which I merged using My Craft Studio (these are great CD's if you dont have a graphics programme and are soo easy to use)
 I coloured the image with my favourite medium Copics, paper is from Bearly MIne Designer Extreme 2, Butterfly is from Klever Konstruction, Pearls are from stash which I coloured with Copics. The gorgeous swirls are from a really lovely set of Hearts and Swirls laser diecuts, which can be purchased from the store. Here's a close up so you can see how intricate they are.
I coloured the swirls with Copics and then sprayed them with Crafters Companion Silver Glitter Spray and added a pearl.

Well I really hope you join in with our challenge, there is some really cool prizes (and warm too lol)1 pack of red ciao markers R22, 27, 29 and 1 pack of blue ciao markers B00, 02 05 to resemble the warm and cool challenge and dont forget to pop over and see the rest of the teams projects, there is some really awesome talent on this team, the colouring these Ladies do is AMAZING, I just hope it rubs of on me lol.
