March 2012 Challenge - Turquoise and Red

It's time to introduce our March Challenge!  Each month we participate we grow by trying new techniques, materials or even new color combinations.

This month Rose of Random Creative came up with the color combination of turquoise and red.  She happens to love the combination, but knows that many people haven't tried it in their art.  If they have used it before it gives them the incentive to try it in perhaps a new way or material.

Rose even fell for the color combination again when selecting threads for her cards and includes it in this blog post of hers.

One of Rose's favorite Etsy artists, Tessa Ann, clearly has a love for the combo herself as her shop banner shares those colors.  Her buttons are so bright and fun.  Check out this set in our challenge colors!

Don't forget to check back in after about the 26th of this month when those of us on the team that participated link up our personal blog posts describing our new creations.  

As members of the Blogging Business Artisans we are required to participate in 6 of the 12 monthly challenges per year.  Additional requirements and to see future challenges click here.  If you would like to become a Blogging Business Artisan, check out what that means here.

I love the combo of turquoise and red. It will be interesting to try something different than my usual beads, as in years past! Great challenge Rose! {:-D
