Since the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine (135636) was on sale, I decided to pair the Orange-Red color group member with Coastal Cabana, from the Green-Blue color group. These two are practically perfect Complements. I picked out the matching colors from the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment (133531) and attached them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755) and with strands of Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana (135638) Thick Baker’s Twine twisted together and sewn on.
Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana are tints of their color group Hues. They both are of similar intensity, but, being pastel, the combination does not have the same energy as Orange and Blue together would.
This soft Complementary color scheme is restful and pleasing to the eye. I made a birthday card which is perfect for birthdays of “that certain age.” The color scheme is also good for baby announcements and showers, or bridal showers. You could also use it for congratulations when the recipient doesn’t want to have a lot of publicity.
