Challenge No. 45 ~ Complementary Colors

March 1, 2011

Happy March 1st ~ hopefully, this day has arrived like a lamb wherever you live … and spring is right around the corner!  

Smiley from


Since we’ve covered COOL and WARM colors for the past two challenges, we thought it would be fun to combine the two this week and feature COMPLEMENTARY colors!    Complementary colors are found on the opposite sides of the color wheel.   



We know you’ll LOVE our sponsor this week!!   We’re happy to welcome the awesome online craft store, Crafts and Me  to our Copic Creations family!     If you are not familiar with this company, you really MUST take a peek at all the fabulous products and stamps carried at Crafts and Me, we promise you won’t be disappointed!



Crafts and Me  is a small family owned craft business ~ Mom, daughters and young granddaughters!   Their aim is to give you the best customer service possible, and to treat their customers just as they would like to be treated themselves.

They are also home to some exclusive, GORGEOUS digital images that can be found HERE.    You’ll see several of these beauties colored by the Copic Creations Design Team below.  (I don’t think I need to mention that you’ll be amazed at their wonderful creations!!)    The images were graciously supplied by Crafts and Me.

We’re also SUPER excited to announce that one VERY lucky participant this week will have the chance to win …

FOUR digi images of your choice from Crafts and Me!  

PLEASE NOTE: You are NOT required to use an image from our sponsor for your Copic Creations project. You will have until March 14th12:00 P.M., CST to post your artwork and be eligible for a chance to win this weeks prize; The winner will be announced along with our next challenge post on March 15th.

Once again, we were blown away again by all the amazing entries for our last challenge!   Thank you ALL for joining us. We’ve selected one of our favorites for this week’s “In the Spotlight” designer:

This awesome creation from Carolina Girl of  Creating in Carolina    . . .
