Color Throwdown #502



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: cobalt blue, aqua, and gray 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 CTD502, and please use #ctd502 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.

Color Throwdown #501


Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! I still find myself obsessed with the color combo of grey and yellow together so when I saw this room picture I HAD to use it for inspiration this week! The colours for this week are to use grey, yellow, kraft, 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 neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD501, and please use #CTD501 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 link 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!

One last detail to remember, 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.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!
