Challenge #21 For the Quirky Girls using only two colours!

Hi Everyone, Cazzy here and my challenge to you is to make something for the Quirky girls, and only to use two colours on your make - except for your image where a few colours are allowed for skin, hair etc.

Your project can feature girls, or be something very girly, or for a girl and can be any type of project that is hand made.

I've not been joining in much and making examples because of family illness and very stressful times, but I am working behind the scenes as usual to keep the challenges going and the brilliant team keep on making wonderful examples for you all to see - thank you.

I have some sad news, Kemly is leaving us and this is her last challenge. She has been a wonderful team member and we will miss her creativity and input to the team and challenges. Good luck to you Kemly for the future!

We have three great sponsors for this challenge and they are:

We would like to welcome Jiggery Makery sponsoring Quirky for the first time.

The prizes for our top three as voted on by the team are:

1st place - 4 images of your choice from Sweet Pea Stamps

2nd place - 3 images of your choice from Jiggery Makery

3rd place - $5 voucher from Digital Delights

How cool is that!

Our generous sponsors have all provided images for the team and guest designers to use, so let's show you some inspiration using those images, first from our Guest Designers.

 Julye used Jumping Jemima from Digital Delights, isn't she fun! Julye made a Halloween card, so cute and you can see the two colours are green and purple..

Julye's second card features the beautiful Fairy on a Stool by Sal Scheibe from Sweet Pea Stamps, and her two colours here are pink and brown.

Lorraine used Missy Pin up from Jiggery Makery for her sassy Christmas card and her two colours are red and green. Perfect card for your Husband Lorraine!

and more from our wonderful Design Team.

Doris used Emmilou Boo- On Broadway from Sweet Pea Stamps on her purple and teal jumbo tag.

For my vintage TV shaped card, I used "Georgia.-Pin up" provided by our generous sponsor Jiggery Makery and to achieved challenge requeriments, I used differents shades from color grey.

For my card I used a beautiful ballet dancer, is a very feminine and delicate dance !!!! The image is
Katerina Koukiotis's Ballet de Papillion- DIGI, the sponsor THE SWEET PEA STAMPS.

Amazingly I have managed to make a card for my challenge! This digi is from Jiggery Makery and is called Cute Face 1. My colours are orange and yellow, which just happened when I looked for flowers to make her hair and I found a jar of these two colour flowers and went from there. All the details are on my blog.

 Hi everybody! To this challenge I made a frame card.
 I used the pretty "Elizabeth-Pin Up". 

She's  beautiful in the cup.This girl is fantastic. 

 She looks even a little sexy or mischievous. This digi is very funny.

 My colours are burgundy and yellow cream. 

I decorated with ribbons and small flowers in the colors selected for this card.

So let's see what you can do!

  4. Super DT samples. Thanks for the "two colors" challenge.

  5. #25 is for a girl recovering from some heart issues, but if you need an image of a girl on the front, then you can go ahead and remove it. Also, I didn't count white as a color.

    1. That's fine Carrie. Thanks for playing along and good luck. Hope you will play along with us many times.

  6. Such fun playing in your challenge and all the inspiration is amazing! Thank you so much. Hugs :-)
