How to Use Colour Inspirations

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:
Front:


Back:

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.
