Color Challenge: October Shadows

I love the crispness in the air, the changing leaves and the thought of everything hibernating for the winter. Sweater weather, warm soup, the smell of pumpkin spice…these are some of my favourite things. When it came time to choose colours for the first Color Challenge on the new website, I really wanted to focus on the moody colours that show up in the shadows as opposed to the traditional orange, yellow and red. Fortunately, Katie has such amazing products in the store that fit the bill!

Here is the palette that we are working with for this month’s October Color Challenge.

I won’t lie, I’ve taken these colours directly from Katie’s new Palette Textures Paper Pack 04. It is probably one of my new favouriite paper packs and I thought it was perfect for the October Color Challenge.Katie Pertiet Design Download

Some of our Guest CT Members  came up with some brilliant inspiration for you using these colours. Shari (b2halter) did a wonderful job of incorporating the challenge colors. I’m not a huge fan of bugs, but this one is so cool – what a great close-up shot!I love the brushwork on the edges of the page.
