Oh neat love how you used those colors together. I was thinking it would be rather challenging but you have inspired me.

I have to admit, my brothers girlfriend has the perfect coloring for those colors with her copper hair and green eyes. I would never be able to put my own photo against those colors. Yick!!!

I started the first day of April by doing my first challenge, and my first upload to the gallery, but my image hasn't shown up in the gallery. My image was resized, and I didn't get any errors. I uploaded to the gallery for the Saturday color challenge Did I do something wrong? Also, once I figure out how to upload correctly how do I link to it from the messageboard?

OK, first make sure you are trying to upload a jpg image no larger than 600x600 at 72 dpi. Go into the color challenge gallery and click on new image to load your layout into that gallery.

 

Try again and if it does not work let me know and we will figure it out.

Here is my layout.

I love these color challenges, and for me they are a real challenge as I am color blind. You always give numbers with the colors, what do I do with them? and how do I use them?

OK, I cheated a little. I combined the Color Challenge and the Weekly Theme Challenge. I hope this was OK. I started another layout for the Color Challenge, but I got stuck. I may return to it later, but I usually have a hard time doing that.

 

Here's my duo-entry layout. I recolored the Grunge Scratches transparency with the burgundy, and I colored my journaling strips with the green, which is also picked up in the clasp.

I use PSP X But you should be able to do this with most programs. When I click on my materials palette, I get a box that looks like this:

 

 

 

You see where is a R, G & B with a number beside them. If you type in my numbers you will get the color. There is another box near the bottom that says HTML. If you enter the number letter combo that starts with a # you will also get the color. Either way works the same. Hope this helps! If you still can't figure it out let me know what program you are using and we will find out how you need to do this.

Great job everyone! Believe me, that green was not easy for me to use either! LOL I decided I needed to try to use papers that I think I never will...and sometimes it turns out better than expected. You have to push yourself outside of your comfort zone every now and then. By the way, my comfort zone is pink, yellow and blue! LOL

I don't know if this is too late and if I am allowed to used slightly different colours but here it is anyway. I love challenges, even though I don't do them that often. Thanks Elizabeth.

Hi:

Posted my challenge earlier but didn't get a chance to put a link here so here it is:

I have to admit that I wasn't too crazy on this green when I started but ended up being fairly happy with the combination. Live and learn right -- that is the fun of the challenges.
