View Full Version : Color Challenge 8/17

Welcome to the exciting new challenge system here at the Digichick!

I love colors and that is why I wanted to host a color challenge for you. I hope that this challenge can make you inspired to use some new colors! If you are like me you use the same favourite colors over and over again. I hope that this can push you in another direction and out of your comfort zone! :yeshuh:

This challenge is to create a layout or another project inspired by this color scheme:


Feel free to use this as inpiration! You don't have to use every color and you don't have to use exactly these hues either. If you look at my layout here you can see that I not only used these five colors, I added some blue to the green one and some light orange too. But they are all pretty close to the color sheme.

Here's my layout inpired by the colors: "My family"

And here’s the fine print:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.
For more information about our Chickie Points System, please see this thread here (http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?34471-Chickie-Points-System!).
The deadline for this challenge is August 31st

alamama, you're not a dork. The "linked image" code is still wrong. There's no link, despite the label. I've been using the "linked thumbnail" code, and you can just remove "/thumbs" from the image URL to get the full-size picture to display.
