Let's Get Your Color On!



Hello,
Well it’s finally beginning to look like Spring just might be making an appearance in the Northeast! I think I may have told you this before but Spring is my most favorite of all the seasons. The sun is warm and bright and everything is green and new again. And I love the smell of fresh Spring air! Makes me smile just thinking about it!
Ok….I digress, and I do apologize….I get a little excited when the snow begins to melt! What I really wanted to talk to you about today is color! Or color combinations to be more precise. Sometimes, it can seem difficult to come up with color combinations for our projects, however, there are a lot of resources available to assist in this endeavor. Take this project for instance,


This card uses colors completely outside of my normal comfort zone, however, I used my Stampin’ Up!® catalog as a source of inspiration. You see, Stampin’ Up! has paper packs of select colors that coordinate with designer series paper packs, basically, they bundle colors together, so that is how I came up with the colors for this card. This is Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay and Watermelon Wonder…..on my own, I never would have considered these colors together, however, Stampin’ Up!’s color experts did the work for me and I took full advantage. I made this card for a sketch challenge over on my Facebook page.  Another source for color combinations is to look at colors within designer series paper. You’re guaranteed a perfect look combining colors from within the pallet found in these patterns. Other great color inspirations come from fabric and multicolor rugs and tapestries. Take a look around, look at your floral arrangements in your backyard gardens, what about that pretty multicolor blouse you love so much? There is color inspiration just about anywhere you look. Don’t be afraid to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone. You never know, just be open to new ideas. Color is a beautiful thing. Embrace it and experiment with it. Where do you find your color inspiration? Comment below and let me know where you find your color inspiration!

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate it.

Happy Stamping
Katrina
