Favourite: Soft or Bold Colours (and why)

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.


Usually we provide 2 contrasting options for you to choose from. 
Join us by using your favourite option in your creation. 

To be eligible to win our prize, or top-3 spot, 
you must explain why you've made your choice,
so we can understand why you like it so much!

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'rabbits', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the bunny from Bambi !

So get crafting and remember the main requirement in creating is 
to have fun and enjoy your crafting time!

Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge. 
Our winner is:

So, onto our next challenge

No sponsor this week - we're playing just for fun.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite: Soft or Bold Colours (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I honestly thought I would pick soft colours every time, but having a look at some of my recent cards they've been fairly bright and bold. But I'm sticking to my guns and opting for soft pastels, because I'd definitely pick softer colours out of any line up!

I tend to use a lot of soft or neutral colors, there is just something comforting and homey about them.  

I tend to go bold, I love the boldness of red, white,
and blue especially for nautical..

I love using bold colours when I make a card for a child. I like the colours to stand out and be eye catching. 

I often want to make a card with soft colours, but most of the time I end up with bold colours, so I made a bold coloured card for today with my favourite card colour: pink.

When it comes to flowers I do love bold colours, especially against a white background, which makes them stand out so well and enhances their colours.

My "go to" is bold. Like Wilma, I wear bold colours, like bold home decor and most elements of my crafting have some bright or bold colour. 

Bold colours! For cards, clothes (always bright/bold colours), furniture (I have a bold green leather chair and a Ton Schulten painting) I go for bold colours. 

It's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
