Color Throwdown #422






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: Navy, hot pink, turquoise, and orange, 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 CTD422, and please use #ctd422 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.

Hi everyone! It's Wanda here with you today and I am hosting this week's Color Throwdown Challenge, CTD420!  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are light blue, sage green, gray and amber/yellowKeep in mind that the colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals!

You can use the keywords #ctd420 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.
