Creative Challenge: Use Your Favorite Color!

For the next Lunagirl blog challenge (#30), here's a fun theme: What's Your Favorite Color?

Each of the Moonbeams Design Team will be working with their own favorite color.  For your entry, use your favorite color!  So this is kind of an "anything goes" challenge, so long as you focus on or highlight your favorite color.

This theme was inspired partly by my collection of color-themed digital collage sheets at  I have whole collections in shades of pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, red, orange, even sepia and black/white.  So I hope you can find your favorite to work with.  And if you can't decide which color is your favorite, remember you can enter two or three times so choose two or three favorite colors!

(Ironically, I have not yet created color-themed digital collage sheets in my favorite shades: aquamarine blue-green (the color of the sea) and deep wine red.  Hmmm, I may have to make that a project...)  My third favorite would have to be purple!

And this time we have a special prize:  the winner (selected by random drawing on August 3) will receive one of my Lunagirl digital collage sheet CDs -- your choice of ten CDs, each includes 25 printable digital sheets.

So get inspired!  Here are the challenge guidelines:

  • Any craft or medium is OK.
  • Limit of 3 entries from one person in each challenge, please.
  • Vintage style is encouraged.
  • Use a Lunagirl image or element and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Remember to link to this blog and to on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  The winner will be selected randomly, to receive a Lunagirl collage sheet CD ($25 value).
  • Challenge ends at noon CST on August 3.

  • Of course I love if you use at least one product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement. However, remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I want to welcome everyone and every style but also give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! 

    LINK UP YOUR ENTRIES BELOW TO PLAY (and please don't forget to SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE Design Team creations!)


     "sometimes i like to challenge myself to use only the items on the collage sheet.  except for the flower at bottom left, everything on this collage-style ATC is from the shabby lilac sheet. as you can see this lovely lady is having sweet purple-y fairy dreams."

    MANDY CHILVERS: PINK POSTCARD "How nice to hear from you."

    "This is a flip card.  The front part is the negative of the embossing done by a folder.  Inside the left part is embossed.  The message is hidden behind the diecut holding the Lunagirl image."

    Here are a few of my favorite things, in aquamarine!
    The woman is from the collage sheet She Walks in Beauty, the wild roses and feathers are from my Victorian Flowers CD (altered colors), the ocean is a photograph I took and the rest is various altered ephemera.


    1. well done DT! so many pretty colors! i will also look forward to the aquamarine color themed sheet as ocean colors are high on my favorites list! xo

    2. Gorgeous design team samples. I hope we don't have to choose just one of our favorite colors. I entered this time with orange but want to come back with some of my other favorites. I just got the shabby lilac sheet and am itching to use it. Michele you did a great job of advertising.

      1. Wendy, please use more than one favorite color! Picking just one favorite is too hard!

      2. This is a really great challenge. So much fun, Let's do this again!
