Color Throwdown #481





Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! This living room photo caught my eye and I just loved the look of these colors together! The colours for this week are to use light purple, dark purple, beige/off white, and brown. Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD481, and please use #CTD481 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!
