Yeah – it’s another weekend! We’ve had four days in a row with no school because of “Snow Day” cancellations so it’s been a great week to relax. Today is another day for a Make it Colourful challenge and this time we’re challenging you to mix your colors… blue and purple to be exact! I made my card using Butterfly Baby Girl from Karen’s Doodles and behind it I added Sheepish Rainbow by Make it Crafty.
Most of my blending is found right in the center with the flowers, dress and butterflies. The flowers were first colored purple then blue was added – and the dress was the opposite, colored blue first then purple was added. I felt they turned out too similar but also tried blending purples/blue with pinks in the butterflies.
Here’s the complete view of the background, Sheepish Rainbow, before most of it was covered. I had originally wanted the rainbow without the sheep, but in the end it turned out perfect. Growing up, I helped my parents raise sheep and bottle feed the lambs in our backyard until they were old enough to send out in the pasture. It was fun and those little lambs were so cute.

Did you know? The genus Tyto includes all barn-owls except for the bay-owls – that is, the true barn-owls, the grass-owls and the masked-owls collectively making up the subfamily Tytoninae. Tyto owls tend to be larger than Bay-owls. The barn-owls’ main characteristic is the heart-shaped facial disc, formed by stiff feathers which serve to amplify and locate the source of sounds when hunting. Further adaptations in the wing feathers eliminate sound caused by flying, aiding both the hearing of the owl listening for hidden prey and keeping the prey unaware of the owl.
