Leisa Jane pm'd me earlier last week saying we should celebrate the Olympics using the Olympic colors. I thought this was a fantastic idea! Leisa sent me a link with a bunch of Olympic pictures with different logos and such. I narrowed the choices to ONE! However, I thought it would be fun to make this more of a color challenge event. The picture shows five(5) different colors. Now, I know more than three colors in a color challenge is technically a "no no" so I thought to be fair to the Olympics and logo colors that we would still use all of the colors, but give everyone options so everybody is happy happy!
CC259: OLYMPIC Color Challenge EVENT!
Based on this photo of the Olympics 2010 we are going to get our colors based on the five colors in the picture. I do not want to specify the names of colors. I am going to let you decide based on what YOU see in the picture.
This week you have some choices!
Event 1: Choose ONE color from photo and ONE neutral.
Event 2: Choose TWO colors from photo and ONE neutral.
Event 3: Choose THREE colors from photo and neutrals of choice.
Event 4: Choose FOUR colors from photo and neutrals of choice
Event 5: Choose all FIVE colors from photo and neutrals of choice.
This week's dessert option is metallics...bronze, silver, or gold!! There are all types and categories of metallics available to use on cards. Choose a metallic of some sort to add to your card.
Be sure when you LOAD to put CC259 in keyword. Also, put in your write up which Event(s) you chose!
Since Leisa Jane had this Olympic idea, I asked her if she would like to sample with me. I also asked Charlene! Thanks so much, girls!
Please keep in mind, too, that while we list SU colors for the challenges these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to play!!!
Please put CC259 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading click here!
I will be hosting the color challenges for the next few weeks. If there is a color combo you want to see using any of the new in colors, please pm me with the link to the card. Try to stay within three color choices. Thanks so much!
