March 2016 Color Challenge

We are excited to bring BACK the monthly Color Challenge!!! Thank you to everyone who has requested that we bring the challenge and collages back… we’re excited to be doing them again!

Our team was inspired to create projects with this color palette using Colorbox Pigment Ink Queues, available in the color palettes below:

Did you know our ColorBox Queues are a great way to get 6 different colors of ink for one low price? Queues are a great way to build your ink color collection plus they are perfect for planners and creating on the go. We’re really excited to share what our guest designers created for you this month but first, we have a new guest designer joining the Clearsnap Blog!
