WELCOME

The Roman poet Horace is attributed with saying that a picture is a poem without words. Well, that's what we like to think too, although some words will be allowed (what's a card without the occasional sentiment). Welcome to the Without Words Challenge where we want you to create clean and simple cards, focusing on the image without the distractions of too many embellishments. We hope you enjoy this challenge as much as we do!

FEBRUARY - I Love To Love

Hello Artists!  Welcome to another monthly challenge where we like to play WITHOUT WORDS - we  were thrilled to see you enjoying our January Snow challenge so much, and we hope that you will enjoy this one too!

This month, which is FEBRUARY, our challenge is I LOVE TO LOVE focusing on reds, pinks, sentimental and romance.

And what a perfect sponsor we have for a romance theme!!  MY CRAFTY HEART is with us this month with a £10 store voucher for the lucky winner!  Thank you so much Teresa for being so generous and for showing us your support.  This is where you can find the blog for My Crafty Heart and the on-line shop is here.



Now then, a serious moment ....I don't like having to shout at you all but I feel we need to make it clear what we expect for your card to qualify for the challenge
CLEAN AND SIMPLE
HANDCOLOURED IMAGE
MINIMAL OR NO EMBELLISHMENTS
YOU CAN USE A SENTIMENT BUT IMAGE MUST BE THE MAIN FOCUS
OF YOUR CARD
PLEASE FOLLOW THE THEME OF THE MONTH
We have seen some wonderful creations that sadly do not fit with the aim of the challenge and it hurts us to have to disqualify anyone, so stick to these simple rules and you will be fine.  And getting you lot to cut back on the embellishments is a challenge all on its own.  One bow is not minimal when it takes up half the card guys!!  Go on, be daring, leave the fluff alone - it's quite liberating, really it is.

We are looking forward to seeing what you make of this one and viewing your fabulous creations.  Please remember to follow our CAS definition (at the top of the blog), and the theme of this months challenge for your entry to be a valid one.

Our very talented Design Team (the Magnificent Seven) have created their usual high standard of magic to inspire you.  An awful lot of time is spent by the team in creating these mini works of art so don't forget that it would be nice if you have time to visit their individual blogs and share the love.














And just before we go, the Winner and Top 3 for January have been posted on our Without Word Monthly Stars page - don't forget to pop over and check it out, it could be you!

The most important thing to remember?  Relax and have fun with colour!
