A WaCCCky Challenge...

Hi everyone!!

It's Maureen (aka Moe) here with a fun post and challenge I think you will all enjoy.

Last June, I participated in the PTI Blog Hop on colour. I had been submitting to many many colour challenges and feeling frustrated about several colour combinations that people were coming up with. It almost felt like they were "pulling them out of a hat." That's when the Wild Card Colour Challenge was born (lovingly referred to as the WaCCCky on my blog....see HERE). I wrote all the PTI colour names on little slips of paper and put them in a little box. Whenever I want a new colour challenge, I draw 4 colours out. NO RE-DRAWS!!! It has been a fun and weird experience...some combinations are definitely Wacky!! LOL.

I thought it would be fun to use my time here on A Passion for Papertrey to host a Colour Challenge!! Here are the deets:
  1. Create a card or project using all 4 colours, plus any neutral you, kraft, cream, white (berry sorbet is already in the line up {wink, wink}) Don't have an exact colour? Substitute a close match :)
  2. Add your card or project to the linky thingy below
  3. We will pick our favourite top 3 cards when the challenge closes on Monday July 4th 9am (UK Time)
  4. A random participant will win a $25.00 USD gift certificate to PTI and will have to send me their email address to receive the prize.
  5. Challenge closes on Monday July 4th at 9am (UK time). Participants worldwide are eligible to play along and be in with a chance of winning the gift certificate!!
Here are the colours that I drew last week with my card sample :) Yes, that's a lot of pink and purple...but that's what I drew!!! Now you know it's not fixed!! lol

Sound like fun? I've only even done this challenge by myself (with a few friends participating now and then) so this is a thrill to have a linky thing involved with a prize!! Woot, woot!! Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Wowzer!! how can you be so cruel Moe lol! My stash is quivering in the corner from that colour combo. Your card has managed to look super classy with it though so I might be tempted hee hee!

After seeing your card, I think that this challenge MIGHT be doable! We'll see! In any case it will be a lot of fun! Love your card! So pretty! This will be my "homework" after June 30th!!

Lol! What a fun challenge! And after all the color combo is not that bad! You actually whipped a pretty card with them :)

Can I say amazing idea?? You actually hooked me up on drawing the colour combos from a hat, lol! Whether I'll be brave enough to use them all, well that's a whole new story... but heyyy, fun is what counts :)
Thanks so much for this fabby challenge!

I love the idea!!! Though I must admit these colors were quite a challenge indeed, ha ha, but I finished my card and put it up today, just in time! It was fun to do!!
Hugs, Wendy
