Color Throwdown #56

Hi everyone! Are you ready for week #56 of the Color Throwdown challenge? Hopefully, you SU addicts have all stocked up on your new In Colors, because I've chosen 3 of them for our challenge this week.


Just in case you don't have the SU colors, these are the closest Prism matches that I could determine:

SU Bermuda Bay = Prism Vibrant Teal
SU Soft Suede = Prism Suede Brown Medium
SU Dusty Durango = Prism Desert Coral Dark

We certainly hope you'll decide to play along with us! This week we're being sponsored by
Rubbernecker Stamps and their delightful design team will also be using these colors as their weekly Wacky Wednesday challenge.


You can find a huge selection of stamps and supplies at Rubbernecker Stamps. Rubbernecker will be at stamp conventions in Tinley Park IL, St Paul MN, Milwaukee WI, Albuquerque NM and Mesa AZ this fall and Sherry Cheever will be conducting several instructional classes covering a variety of techniques and new products. Be sure to stop by and say hello! Looking for more Rubbernecker inspiration? Check out their blog!!

This week's grand prize will be the winner's choice of any stamp or stamp set from the Rubbernecker website (including free shipping). As an added bonus, Rubbernecker is generously offering everyone who participates in the Color Throwdown challenge this week a 10% discount off any order placed between August 19 and 11:59pm August 25, 2009. Just enter the word Color in the coupon box at the bottom of the shopping cart. This coupon is good for one use only, per customer.

The keyword this week is CTD56. Make sure you use it when you upload to any public gallery so that we can see how you've been inspired to use the colors this week. Please use Mr. Linky below to link us directly to your post-not just your blog...so that you can be in the running for next week's Featured Stamper. Who knows, you may be chosen as our October Guest Designer!
(You can participate in our challenges at any time, but to be considered for the blog candy and/or Featured Stamper your entry must be linked with Mr. Linky by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, August 23rd.)

Happy Stamping!

I have a question, I have neither the SU colors or Prism. Can I use Taken with Teal, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa?

Barbara said...

Melissa, absolutely!!! Use whatever you have that's as close as you can get. Those colors will be great!! Can't wait to see what you do!!!
