There are many colour inspiration pallets floating round the blogosphere and Pinterest at the moment which are so lovely to look at, but what can you do with them?
I am going to be posting about the ways that you can actually out your favourite colour schemes into action. Starting with branding, I have decided I need new business cards, I wont actually get them printed yet as I have a number of my old ones left but I am going to play around with some designs now.
I got the inspiration to revamp my business cards when this popped up on my news feed.
Here I decided to have a go with items from my Etsy Shop and created two colour schemes from two images. I then used these colour schemes to add the text to my card design:
As you can see only some of the colours in each scheme were used but that is their beauty you don't need all of them to make it work.
Next time I will show a new scheme and make a header from it, I feel a slight re branding coming on!
I will keep showing examples of how to use the colour schemes but once my blog, Etsy and Facebook headers have been done I might run out of things to scheme, so if you have a particular need for a scheme or blog header send me an image and I will see what I can do with it.
