PTI Anniversary: Color Challenge

by cbaptista on 02/08/2012

Papertrey Ink is celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary this month.  Along with their monthly sneak peeks and release on the 15th, there are also special announcements and challenges with fabulous prizes to be won thrown into the mix!  Today’s challenge is a Color Challenge.  Each of the design team members chose their favorite color combinations from the last year and the challenge is to create a new project inspired by one of those combinations.  This is the color combination I chose:

This is Dawn McVey’s favorite color combination.  I don’t own any of Papertrey’s color products so I did my best matching those colors to what I have on hand.  This is what I came up with:

I used the freebie image (that was designed by Dawn) from the other day.  I thought that was a fairly good way to have those colors represented.  This was my first color challenge ever and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I chose this combo because I’ve always admired and loved how Dawn uses colors in her projects.  I wanted to get a taste of what that feels like. :)  It was pretty fun playing around with such vibrant colors!  I’m surprised by how much I ended up liking this color combination.  What do you think?  Did I do alright with this color challenge??  Thanks for stopping by!
