Challenge #1

Hi everyone! Welcome to our first Color Throwdown Challenge! We are all excited about our first challenge and are looking forward to seeing the creations you come up with! I am the hostess this week, and my color choices are:



I chose these colors because I think they're pretty and complement each other nicely. If you don't have these specific Stampin' Up! colors, please just use whatever you have that is similar. We're totally flexible and just want everyone to have FUN! There is no time limit for this challenge. Feel free to try this whenever you have time! In the future, we hope to have some prizes to give away to random participants but for now there is no time limit. Be sure to leave a comment here on this post with a link to your project. If you'd like to upload your challenge to SCS, use the keyword "CTD1". Thanks for visiting us and we hope you can play along!


And here are the samples:

LeAnne Pugliese - Wee Inklings



Cathy Indelicato - Crafty Thoughts


Kisa Peters - Kisa's Paper Cuts


Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor


Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy




Tracy Durcan - Durcan Designs
