Happy Hallowe’en 2017-Belated!  I didn’t mean to be this late, but I was determined to post this card design for you.  And I was anxious to try out my new Potion Colors.  You may remember these from my Favorite Hallowe’en Colors article.

Now, the Potion Colors are Lemon-Lime Twist, from the Yellow-Green Color Group, and Fresh Fig, from the Violet-Red Color Group.  These colors are direct Complements to each other, so a high-contrast Complementary Color Scheme is a natural!

I started with a Candy Corn background because we’d talked about this on Monday.  Then I decided I could add the Potion Colors without any real combination issues.  The Candy Corn background is made with Daffodil Delight, from the Yellow Color Group, and Pumpkin Pie, from the Orange Color GroupThe two are Analogous to each other (Whisper White is a Neutral and doesn’t count, as you should remember) and create a harmonious combination.

Yellow is a Split Complement to Violet-Red and so fits in with the Complementary Color SchemeOrange is Analogous to Yellow and Yellow is Analogous to Yellow-Green, so we’ve got a Complementary Plus Color Combination going on.  The Fresh Fig layer divides the Candy Corn layer from the Lemon-Lime Twist card base, so the color scheme isn’t jarring.

By the way, I decided Rich Razzleberry is also a Potion Color, since it’s in the same Color Group as Fresh FigFresh Fig makes a murkier Potion Color, but you can use Rich Razzleberry if you prefer the brighter color.

The remaining Hallowe’en Color of Basic Black is present as Black Rhinestone Jewel accents… in case you were worried.
