Dots and Stars - Two Color Schemes

  New card - Complementary colors            Original card - Monochromatic colors

To kick off the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Design Bootcamp, led by Paula, we're learning The ABC's of Color (Basic Color Theory).  The assignment is to use one of several color harmonies for a card.

I chose to remake one of my monochromatic cards.  For complementary colors on the new card, I added a pinkish purple (which looks bluer on the screen than in real life.)

I like both cards, and it's interesting to see the difference of the color scheme.  Thank you, Paula!

I like it in both combinations too and it's interesting to see the same design in both harmonies. I particularly like the extra contrast of the bright white in Monochrome version. It makes the sentiment 'pop' so nicely! Thanks for playing in this month's Bootcamp!
