Color Cue {8} Challenge


Create a card, scrapbook page, digital layout, tag, whatever...just make sure to use the above colors, yellow, scarlet, green, and white. PTI color equivalents are Harvest Gold, Scarlet Jewel, Simply Chartreuse, but anything you have on hand close to the colors will do. Black or Brown for sentiments or outlines is fine as always.

Create your project and post it to your blog or online photo gallery such as Flickr or SCS. Add a direct link to your project (not your homepage please) by clicking the "add your link" button below.


You have until October 7th at 10:59 pm EST to play along. You will know the deadline has passed when the link to add your project is no longer available.


If you have Wplus9 stamps in your stash, now would be the time to bust them out. I will be collecting lucky participants to feature as "On Cue with Color" here on the blog and at The Studio. If you don't have any yet...don't worry I still want to be inspired by you and you will still be featured here on the blog!

Here's some inspiration from the Wplus9 Design Team to get you started. Just click on each name to visit their blog and get the details on their projects.

I just love how this card turned out. I knew from the start that I wanted to use Wplus9's Funky Foliage. I wanted to create a larger focal point for the 5x5" card so I created this large tree by using a bit of masking for the trunk to create multiple branches. I then came in and added layers of leaves in a variety of colors to fill in the tree. Now it's been over 15 years since I've experienced a true fall and witnessed the trees change their colors. But in my world...they turn scarlet too. LOL
