The Colour Coach

This is another card I showed during my Convention Presentation. This time I was talking about the Colour Coach. The colour coach is a great little tool to use to help you choose matching colours, and it also explains Colour theory. I used the Colour Coach to make this card. Sometimes just finding a colour combination is the hardest thing to decide on, and the Colour Coach can make the decision for you. Just close your eyes and spin the wheel LOL. This colour combo is straight from the wheel, and I used the Colour Theory explained on the wheel to put it together too. I chose my main colour (Really Rust), and then used only half as much of my next colour (Bordering Blue), and then half as much again of my next colour (Mellow Moss) and then my fourth colour (Bashful Blue) is used only as an accent. This way, the 4 colours work in harmony, rather than competing with eachother.
