Up for a Challenge?

I always love challenges! I try to participate in them as often as I can but one thing I love even more is hosting them! This week I'm hosting a COLOR challenge here and at Stamp Shack and I invite all my stamping friends to participate. The challenge will be open all week and I will draw a winner from all entries linked to my blog. The winner will receive an AWESOME stampers prize. So are you ready to get some color inspiration? Here's this week's color challenge. Inspiration came from a photo I found on the Pottery Barn website. Yes, I copied the photo to place here on the blog but I give them credit and am not using it for profit...just a little fun. So...without further ado, here's the inspiration:

OK...So the colors are YUMMY right? I wanted some beachy colors for this week's challenge and this photo fit the bill. Love the pattern too. Anyway, I posted the four color spots that you must use somewhere in your creation. The first color is a taupeish green, then we have a foam green, then of course some brown and the lightest of watery blues...

The directions are simple:

  • Create a card or project with any stamps and embellishments.
  • Must have a stamped image, not just a sentiment.
  • Must include all four colors.
  • Post a direct link to your project on this page.

That's it! I'll select one participant (who followed all the directions) to win a prize from me.

Have fun, happy stamping!
PS...If you are a Copic lover like me, here are the colors that fit nicely:

E47 Dark Brown, E59 Walnut
G20 Wax White
G82 Spring Dim Green, G24 Wilow, G21 Lime Green
B52 Soft Greenish Blue, BG72 Ice Ocean



  1. What a yummy group of colors Kerry, I have only entered 1 or 2 challenges before, but I think I may have to give this one a go...

  2. Oooh I love those colors and those sheets! Yes, yummy! I should check out the Pottery Barn catalog ... or maybe I shouldn't, because I'm sure I'd see stuff I want!

  3. These colors are beautiful - I am thinking that these SU colors might be the ones to use for this challenge: Certainly celery, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip or the new Espresso, and Baja Breeze.
