Thanks to everyone that took part in Lythan's Colour Combo last week - and what luck that her lovely summery colour scheme actually coincided with some summery weather at long last!

It seems this effect is really popular at the moment - not just in the craft world but in hair colouring too. If you're looking for inspiration, pop over to Pinterest to see some fabulous ideas - but before you do that, have a look at the amazing ideas the team have come up with for you:
