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!
