Color Throwdown #408

Hi, everyone!  It's Lynn here with your colors for this week. I thought with it being back to school time that some primary colors would be fun to create with for challenge #408.  Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: red, yellow, green and blue, 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 CTD408, and please use#ctd408 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 with be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

Color Throwdown #407




Hi, everyone!  It’s Lori and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are lime green, teal, and yellow.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals. 

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD407 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd407 and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!
