January 2023

 Hello all!  Welcome back to another month at the Colorful Options Challenge

This month we celebrate....

Basic Black

Thank you for joining us for the White Challenge, and we hope you will join us again this month too.

This month we challenge you to use black as your inspiration.  
ANY shade or interpretation of black is welcome.  

Please remember that you may incorporate any neutrals or metallics you need in your design and that your make does not need to be monochromatic.  If black is not your liking, join us with a rainbow-inspired craft. 

 Examples from our Design Team incorporate various artistic styles, and we welcome you to do the same!  Do not forget to click on the person’s blog to see all the details of how we made these creations and leave these wonderful girls some comment love.

Keep in mind that our contest is not limited to paper crafts.  Paint? Ink? Decor? Drawing? ANY artistic endeavor is welcome!!  

If you are a junior maker younger than 18, please post your age behind your name. Thank you!!

Show us your take on the challenge!  

We would like to welcome our guest designer this month,
