Color Hues #17 RED and ORANGE

 Hey, hey! Happy Saturday! It's time for our new challenge at Color Hues, friends! Let's give it a go for red and orange this time. 

I'll bet you thought I would do florals. And, yes I did. And maybe you thought that I might include an ink blended background or bold stripes. I did think of that , but will save it for next time. 

I tried something I've been wanting to do with this combo. I made a template using stamp images that I have on hand for a turn about card. How fun is that! 

Combining images from a couple or three sets works well for this. I chose mostly solid images. Choosing the ink colors makes all the difference. I used Pale Tomato and Orange Soda (SSS) combined with Wild Mango and Warm Wool (WPlus 9.) I don't know why the red has a pinkish vibe. It really is a soft red. 


After trimming the image down, I used a stitching die to add a bit of interest, and placed two focal images on the left side. Snipping the images out, I kept the Copic Coloring simple. Can't wait to see what you will create with these gorgeous colors!

It's amazing what you did with these colors on your cute card! Very creative! Red and orange can be a hot combination, but you've shown it all depends on the shade. So fun!
