Color Throwdown Wednesday!!

Don't forget to CLICK HERE for the Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop!!!!

Oh.My.GOODNESS!!!! It feels like ages since I've participated at the CTD!!! I'm so happy to be back for this week's challenge!

This week Tammy is our hostess and she picked so GREAT colors for us to work with. Have a look....

For some reason, these colors immediately said bold and graphic to me. So, here's what I created...

As you can see by my photo I've been playing around with photo editing in my GIMP program, LOL!

I started with a dark grey base and then just layered different sizes of paper strips in alternating colors across the base to create this stripey design. Then I added an equally bold sentiment. I made this card on Sunday when my pal Ariana came over for a visit. We spent hours crafting and designing (and eating...but all good stuff). It really was a blast!!!

Playing at the Color Throwdown is ALSO a blast. Just head on over to the blog to read about how to participate. Then, make a paper crafted project, post it to your blog or online gallery and link it to the CTD using the linky tool we provide. It's simple and fun!

Don't forget to check out the blogs of all the participating designers for this week's challenge and leave them some love!!
