Challenge 26 - RUBY, CREAM and GOLD

You'll be so glad to hear we have a much easier and far more beautiful colour combination for you this week. I admit the last challenge was hard for the DT so we knew it would be difficult for everyone else. But WELL DONE to everyone that had a go. We're so pleased you gave it a try and you made some really beautiful items.

Here are our 5 winners

Congratulations! Please would you e-mail us at to claim your Handy Hippo voucher prize.

Without further ado, here is your colour combination and picture for inspiration for challenge 26. This wonderful colour combo has been picked out by our uber talented Chris.

The colours are RUBY, CREAM and GOLD.

The Optional extra, if you'd like to play along with that too, is GEMS.

Our regular monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp! has given us another $25 voucher as a prize for the winner this challenge.

"With over 100,000 items in stock, Simon is proud to offer the best selection of Rubber Stamps, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Cards, Altered Art, and Paper Crafting Supplies in the world!"

Thank you so much Heidi; these are always really popular prizes.

Here is some inspiration from the design team:

Wow, that ring is beautiful!!! And so are those lovely cards made by the DT. Fantastic theme. Just hope my ruby color isn't too purple.

Faye said...

I decided I needed to do an entry that I actually put my hands on (not a digital art) so I have made a ruby, cream, and gold candy box, which is on my other blog at

It probably won't be viewed much but I feel better having done a paper project.
