Color Throwdown #544



Hi everyone, it's Wanda here pinch hitting for Amy Rohl who had a mishap that will require some time off from the CTD duties (wishing you a quick recovery, Amy!). Amy had already picked this wonderful color combo of coral, aqua and navy--and any other neutrals you need to complete your design.

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD544, and please use #ctd544 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  All of the rules are in the right sidebar, so check them out if you're unsure.  And no digital designs will be allowed - only digital images that are printed off and colored.   

Now here is some great inspiration from the talented design team.  We can't wait to see what you create!

Color Throwdown #542

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: coral pink, blue, green, and kraft 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 CTD542, and please use #ctd542 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 design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.
