Time to introduce the next two-month challenge, troops!
The Ebony Black color palette is pure drama. Rich with several shades of cream, chocolate and taupe can be used on the base matte black color. We have a full selection of beautiful matte black brass and vintage jewelry findings and other vintage supplies at B'sue Boutiques from which to select your key focals for your designs! Get ready to create!
To participate and perhaps win the randomly-chosen giftie package chock-full of B'sue goodies, you will need to use at least two of the five colors against your selection of matte black brass. If you already have some matte black focals and pieces that would remain visible in your design that come from our place, go ahead and use them. If you need any, you'll find a nice selection at the website.
We need 30-50 B'sue Boutiques Creative Group members to participate in our challenge. Our color palette challenges last for TWO months.....so you have until October 31st to share your design at the Creative Group at Facebook and pin it to our Challenges Board
On November 1, the winner will be announced by Project Development Team member, Irene Hoffman of Heart's Dezire. And then, I will pull out some lovely goodies and ship 'em on out for ya!
I can't wait to begin working with that combination of colors, myself!
Here is something to inspire you for this challenge, made by Allison Murray of Bordeaux and Pearl:
You might wonder, what is the Project Development Team at B'sue Boutiques all about, anyway?
Isn't that something new?
Yes it is, a bit. Previously we had a DESIGN TEAM at B'sue Boutiques with many talented artists. But, with all the work of daily business here, I was having a bit of trouble co-ordinating projects and finding just the right thing for Design Team members to do. Marcia Tuzzolino, Jann Tague and Irene Hoffman have for some time been very key in assisting me with color ideas as well as filling in for me when I was away on a business trip, engaging the group and keeping all the creative balls in the air!
They also live close to one another and even meet on a regular basis to try new techniques and brainstorm ideas. Naturally it made sense to create the PROJECT DEVELOPMENT TEAM using the talents of these three jewelry artists who have great design backgrounds.
You can read more about them and The Friends of B'sue Boutiques at our website. Everyone on that page is someone who has been key to the evolution of the B'sue Boutiques website as well as the Creative Group on Facebook over the last 3-5 years. Each one is a blessing in their own way and I am grateful for the networking we do together.
Meantime.....we wrapped up the Choxie Color Challenge by announcing the winner Tuesday, September 6. The winner was Shari Gardner!
Here is what I made for the challenge:
I've already worn it a number of times!
Would you like to see what the others made?
And then come on over to the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group at Facebook and join us for the Ebony Matte Black Brass Challenge!
