Color Throwdown #24

Welcome back, everyone! The Color Throwdown team is ready to start 2009 with some new challenges and new faces! As Tammy said, we had to say goodbye to Kim, but we have two new members on our team, Danielle and Barbara. We are all excited to play and can't wait to see what you come up with. And on Tuesday, we'll randomly choose one "contestant" as our Featured Stamper! Our colors for this week were inspired by my friend Beth! She mentioned she was making something with this color combo and I thought it was Challenge-worthy!

If you'd like to play along, post your creation on your blog or online gallery and leave a link in the comment section below. Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, just use something similar!


LeAnne Pugliese- Wee Inklings


Danielle Kennedy - Wild Dragonfly Designs



Cathy Indelicato/Crafty Thoughts...


Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor


Barbara Anders Paper Pursuits


Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy

I am the first...I knew getting up at 5 in the am would pay off! Tee Hee!
I did this challenge in combination with the SCS sketch challenge today. I like that they are on the same day...it helps me with creativity!

I cannot believe that I do not have ANY Mellow Moss. I'm lucky I have the ink to compare it to. HOpe this is close enough.

My card for this challenge is the second one on my post - I'm sure I've missed adding something to it - a bit plain - but I did enjoy the colours!!! Joan

These cards are amazing, and inspired me to go and try these colours for myself (which I guess is the whole point ;-).

So, thank you for your inspiration ladies!

Here is my card.
