Sketch Color Challenge Sunday: Secondary Colors

Today I would like to offer you a slightly different challenge; a color scheme challenge. Every few weeks or so I will be giving you a color challenge in lieu of a sketch, just to change things up a little bit and offer some of the readers who aren't fond of sketches a little something they might like to try instead.

For this challenge I would like to challenge you to think of some fun secondary colors... orange, purple, and green... and to use them to make your creation. These colors have become VERY popular for Halloween, so perhaps that could be the focus of your card. Make an ATC, a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item, anything!

These are the three shades of the colors that I plan to use:

If you do give the challenge a try, then it is simple to share your work with me, the rest of the design team, and the blog readers! Upload a photo somewhere (Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, etc.) and then put a link to it in the comments by adding the following codes to your comment, and then replacing the word "link" with the actual link to your photo:

      <a href="link">My Color Challenge</a>

Your comment will then contain the words "My Color Challenge" which will link to your photo. The design team really looks forward to seeing your work!

Here is a card I made that uses these colors, along with black and white, to celebrate Haloween. The green in the card is actually brighter than it appears in this photo. That's what I get for taking a photo at night...

Until the next time,
