Color Throwdown #39

CTD39 banner

Wow, Cathy really challenged me today with these CTD colors of Real Red, Basic Black and Barely Banana!:

CTD39 swatch

The colors reminded me of the Scotch plaid cooler my parents had as a child....dating myself, I know!  So I inked up my little Scottie dog stamp and used a sketch from Jen DelMuro a few weeks ago:

Doesn't he look cute wearing his little red plaid coat? I used an assortment of DP from SU's retired Prints pack along with some Real Red and Basic Black on a Barely Banana square card.  Here's the inside:

Now let's see what these colors inspire you to create!  Post your creation on your blog, or on an online gallery, using the keyword CTD39.  Go back and link it to the CTD blog via Mr. Linky.  (Make sure you link your exact post, not your entire blog address--don't want it to get deleted!)  You may even be chosen as our Featured Stamper of the week!  Feel free to substitute colors if you don't have these exact ones!  Let's see what the others came up with:

  • Stamps:  Dogs, Inkadinkado; Polka Dot Basics, PTI
  • Paper:  Barely Banana, Real Red, Basic Black, Prints DP
  • Ink:  Stazon, So Saffron
  • Acc:  Styled Silver HPH, Red & Black Gingham, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Circle Fire Brad, Nesties
