OWH Design Bootcamp – Color Theory


Operation Write Home is starting something new today – Design Bootcamp. Today’s info is all about basic color theory. Color schemes that work well together are called Color Harmonies – like Monochromatic, Analogous, Complementary and From Nature.

This is the first card I made.

At first, I thought because the colors were greens and blues that it had to be From Nature but then I realized that it’s Analogous as well as the colors would be next to each other on the color wheel.

Green paper is Bazzill Pear, patterned papers are My Minds Eye Best of Damask. Sentiment is from Word (Bradley Hand ITC 36pt Bold) as I only have two Thank You stamps and neither would have worked with this card, which has sort of a formal vibe to me. Sentiment is printed on Wausau Fleck Cardstock and colored with Distress Inks Peeled Paint.
