Color Throwdown #357


Hello everyone!!! Joan here with this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!  I found this awesome tiger picture on Pinterest and fell in love with the colors: black, white, pink, and blue.  They are so soft and pretty and the black really pops!!  Before we know it, fall will be upon us and summer will be just a memory...hopefully, these colors will help us hang onto those warm, lazy days a little longer!!!

You can use any shade of the colors you wish and once you’ve finished your card or other paper-crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD357 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd357 and/or #colorthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Color Throwdown Designers and Guesties...check it out!!! I can't wait to see what you create with these fun colors!!!

Color Throwdown #356


Hey, y’all.  It’s Broni here and it’s my turn to host the challenge this week.

I fell in love with this inspiration photo the minute I saw it!  Then I panicked and thought the colors would be too hard to work with.  After playing around with them and coming up with my card I decided that I really do love the color combo of Orange, Green and Black!

The colors are generic and you’re fine as long as you use the chosen combo of orange, green and black, with any other neutrals of your choosing.  If you post in an online gallery, please use the keyword CTD356 and please use #ctd356 and #colorthrowdown if you’re posting on other social media sites.

You can tell by all the awesome creations of the design team that the colors really do work well together!

Remember to have fun!
