Color Throwdown #412





Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara here with your colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: medium blue, grassy green, coral, and hot pink, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD412, and please use #ctd412 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designs--only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. 

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

Color Throwdown #410


Hi, everyone!  It’s Wanda and it’s my turn to host this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are peach, aqua and gray.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals. 

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD410 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd410 and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
