Color Throwdown Challenge #802

 

Hello everyone! Kelly Schirmer here as your host for this week's Color Throwdown challenge! 

The colors for this week:  coral, gray, and blue! This photo is special to me because I lived in Manahawkin, New Jersey and graduated from high school there...it's the mainland of Long Beach Island (LBI)!  I even worked in Surf City one summer slicing meat at a deli counter, too. We are headed there for vacation next week! So when I saw this photo on Etsy.com, coupled with the beautiful summer colors, I knew this was a perfect CTD inspiration piece!

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 your creation. 

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, use the keyword CTD802, and  use #CTD802 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, be sure to link your specific post and 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, please!  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

We can’t wait to see what you make!  Next Tuesday July 23 we’ll reveal a randomly-selected guest designer from all of the entries, and showcase some cards or projects that captured our attention. For now, here is some fabulous inspiration from the CTD team…

Color Throwdown Challenge #800

 

Hello creative friends! It's Wanda here with a summery color palette of kraft, red and blue. I elected not to go with a patriotic theme and went with a card for a "cool friend" instead.  Remember, we use generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! Feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you would like in your design.

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD800, and please use #ctd800 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of this post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All the rules are in the right sidebar, so check them out if you're unsure. No digital designs will be allowed - only digital images that are printed off and colored.   Be sure to check out some great inspiration from the talented design team below!  We can't wait to see what you create!
