Color Throwdown #403


Hi everyone!  It's Broni and his week I'm honored to be your hostess for the challenge!
 
The colors I chose are Peach, Yellow, Light Pink and White.  Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in other neutrals (cream/black/etc) to make your creation pop!
 
If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD403, and please use #CTD403 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to add a link to your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure! 
 
Now how about some gorgeous inspiration from the design team!?

Color Throwdown #402 Featured Stamper




Hey, everyone! Are you ready to find out who last week's Featured Stamper is? Well, wait no more, I'm here to reveal! Thanks so much for all of you who played along--the gallery was amazing with all of your gorgeous creations! And, without further ado, randomly chosen Featured Stamper #402 is Ted Mattos!!! And here's his gorgeous project!! Having met Ted personally at the 2016 MFT Retreat, I was tickled PINK to see his number pop up on random.org !


 Don't you just love !?? Please join me and the rest of the CTD team in congratulating Ted!!!!!! Ted, you are now invited to join us as our Guest Star Stamper for the challenge on August 3rd.  Please send an email to colorthrowdown[at]gmail[dot]com by NOON Eastern Time on Friday, July 29 to obtain your Featured Stamper blinkie and get details for the challenge.

A few other cards caught my eye this week, and here they are, in no particular order: 

1. Susie Moore - gorgeous one layer card.
2. Ike's World - who can resist a pop up box card AND an animal rescue PSO rolled into one? Not me!
3. Hannelie - this clean and fresh design really highlights the colors.

Thanks again to everyone who played along--we love seeing that gallery fill up every week. Be sure to check back tomorrow when Miss Broni has an AWESOME color palette for us to play with--you won't want to miss it!

Color Throwdown #402




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: green, orange, purple, and aqua, 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 CTD402, and please use #ctd402 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 with 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.
