Color Throwdown 398-Inking About You

Hi, everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  Lynn is our houstess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I've chosen some fun summer colors for us to create with and I hope you'll play along! This week's colors are red raspberry, hot pink, lime green and bright yellow.  Please also feel free to incorporate any neutrals into your creation!  This is all about having fun!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD398, and please use #CTD398 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!   We can't wait to see what you create!

I love a great punny sentiment and this one from the new Seaside stamp set from Reverse Confetti was perfect with the octopus from the set. I used the Red to Pink ombre ink to stamp my octopus and then cut him out with the matching Seaside Confetti Cuts. I sponged on some distress inks onto a water color panel and gave it a little water spritz before adhering the octopus down. 

I used some hearts cut from Wild Cherry card stock from the Donut You Know and Layered Snowflake Confetti cuts to added above my sentiment. I then finished off the card with a couple of Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts behind the image panel. It was a nice way to tie in more of the colors from the challenge. 

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! And don't forget to join us over on the CTD Blog. We can't wait to see what you create with these new colors.
