May Color Challenge: Tangerine Blues

Sarah here (sterkeurs) and I was so inspired by the Vintage Artistry Everywhere kit which came out recently that I choose a palette highlighting two shades of blue and tangerine orange for the May Color Challenge. Orange and blue are complementary which means that they are opposite of each other on the color wheel. Complementary colours have the highest level of contrast between their two hues, which makes them stand out.

A few Creative Team members have started us off these fabulous colours and I hope that you’ll also be inspired to create a page to add to the Color Challenge Gallery. Katie has provided us with a freebie pack which you can download and use on your page if you wish.

Candy (cnewby) started with this spectacular example of how easy templates are to use and make them our own. What a stunning photo and I love the little frame in the corner.
