I created the background for this Lost Lagoon Triadic Color Scheme Thank You Card for my article about the Simply Scored™ Diagonal PlateOriginally, I was going to use just Lost Lagoon, from the Green-Blue Color Group, and Blackberry Bliss, from the Violet-Red Color GroupThe combination looked good, but I’d have to call the scheme something like Analogous Plus, when it’s actually two legs of a Triadic Color Scheme.

The three legs of the Lost Lagoon Triadic Color Scheme include Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey from the Yellow-Orange Color Group.  Perfect!  Plus, these are all retiring 2014-2016 In ColorsTriadic Schemes form a triangle on the color wheel and add a dynamic sense to a theme.  In this case, I recombined the Semi-Tertiary Color Groups so the triangle would look more balanced.

This combination is good for Friendship, Party, Birthday, Anniversary, other Celebrations and Masculine cards and pages, as well as Thank You.  Use it whenever you want a more formal look with some drama, but not the extreme drama of Black & White.
