Good morning and happy weekend! This scheduled post is coming to you while I am enjoying a long weekend with my husband in our favorite get-away spot - Key West, Florida. We're fortunate to be able to get out and enjoy the glorious winter Florida weather!
This week at Our Creative Corner we have a color challenge for you - use a Analogous color scheme. "Analogous color schemes use any 3 colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs. When using an Analogous Color Scheme choose one color to dominate, a second to support. The third color is used (along with black, white or gray) as an accent."
I admit, I had to do some research on this one and I found that you can also use lighter shades of these colors. I found another color wheel that gave other shades. So I picked lime green, moss green and then Baja Breeze which is a soft blue/green color. I'm not sure I really hit the analogous color target though, but it did make for a soft and pretty card. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch as a starting point and pulled out a very old SU! fav of mine - Botanicals.
Hope you will be able to join us this week for our Analogous color challenge at Our Creative Corner.
