It's a new week and a new challenge!

It's a new week but before we get to the new challenge, I have a prize winner to announce. The winner of the great prize package from Deneen is Becky Sorenson! Congratulations! Please send your mailing address to me at mbryt1@bex.net and I forward the info to Deneen.

I also want to thank Deneen again for being a great sponsor and we are so looking forward to your weeks as our Guest DT. Deneen will be joining the team for the last two weeks in May so stay tuned for her incredible artwork then! And you can always visit our sponsor page and find links to all of our great sponsors' blogs/websites. Pop over and leave them a little love, ok?

Now on to this week's challenge. It's a color challenge and maybe one that will make you think. We are working with Ocean, Topiary and Desert Sand (and of course a neutral like cream, white or black).







Here is what the Design Team created with these colors:







Are you inspired yet? Well we can't wait to see what you can create with these colors! Just post your artwork to your blog or other online gallery - PLEASE DO NOT use your MyCTMH site if you are a consultant unless you can link to the page that features that one specific piece of artwork! If you link to the entire gallery, you are not eligible for any prizes. Also, this is H2H7  - if you post at a public gallery, please use this keyword so we can find your entry easier!

Be sure to leave a link here to your artwork so we can check you out. You might just find yourself in a Friday Five! Happy Stamping!

I love these colors but the only one I own is Topiary. I really want to play along since I haven't missed a week yet so will have to see what I can do.

I can't believe I'm the first one. I love these challenges! It gets me creating first thing every Monday. Thanks for your wonderful DT inspirations!

I love these challenges and I happy to be pushed outside of my comfort zone.

Sarah Snow said...

This was a tough one...lots of fun though!

Lori said...

As luck would have it, I was already using Topiary & Ocean in a layout, so the color part was easy for me. Deciding what to do with it on the other hand...had a blast!

Great Challenge. I had to get out of my comfort zone on this one!

Queen Bee said...

I actually found cardstock in the colors needed. Hope you enjoy my entry.

Deneen said...

I love being challenged! This was stepping out of my comfort zone again, but I enjoyed it!

Thanks DT, for your great samples, they definitely inspired me.

I just happened to have an extra picture from a layout I was working on for my honeymoon album...Not traditional Disney colors, but it worked great with the photo :)

I never would have put these colors together, but I guess that's why it's called a challenge, eh? lol
Happy to have been able to play 2 weeks in a row now, too. Thanks for the challenges! :)

Number 17 is correct! Number 16 should be deleted!

Loved the challenges. This one motivated me to actually scrapbook and start getting caught up! Fun to do! Colours were a challenge, but I am happy with results. Thanks for looking.

Nicole said...

Thanks for suggesting colors to use, that's one of the hardest parts for me!

My first colour challenge, and challenge it was!

Thanks for the colour palette - I don't think I would have put them together on my own, I have to say.

:)

I love these colors together!

Michele said...

Not sure I am satisfied with my attempt but I love the challenge to grow! Thanks,

MistyGirl said...

Ann said...

This one was a challenge, but I'm thrilled with how mine came out and how many other great ideas there are here!

Lorrinda said...

I struggled with this one! Never would have used these colors together...thanks for the challenge! Love what everyone has come up with so far!

Jody Gustafson said...

I checked out all the artwork for this challenge. It is all amazing. I wasn't excited about the colors (they are a challenge) so that's why I wanted to try. It was fun. Can't wait to see the next challenge.

AAAAh! This was a tough one for me! ;O) Thanks for a great challenge!
