The Diad Color Scheme is made up of a pair of colors that are two colors apart on the Color Wheel. In this Gift Take-Out Box project, I’m using Crisp Cantaloupe from the Red-Orange Color Group and Blackberry Bliss from the Violet-Red Color Group.
For convenience (to save myself having to make up a name), I am combining my two Color Craft Chart columns of Tertiary Colors into the standard one Tertiary Color Group. You may recall that I originally split the Tertiary Colors in my Color Chart to Help You Color Craft Post for more accuracy and to make it easier to categorize the Stampin’ Up!® Colors. I also didn’t want a chart that had two pages worth of rows for one color along with nothing in other colors.
The Accent Colors also create a Diad: Hello Honey from the Yellow-Orange Color Group and Mossy Meadow from the Green-Yellow Color Group. This makes a Double Diad Color Scheme for the Gift Take-Out Box project.
I also used Wild Wasabi from the Green Color Group as a secondary accent, but I think I would be better served if I had used Mossy Meadow instead. The Wild Wasabi stamped leaves on the box just aren’t intense enough to go with the Blackberry Bliss flowers.
The Diad Color Scheme lets you create softer contrasts or harmonious color combinations. It’s a good mixture for Mother’s Day, Birthday, Bridal Shower and Friendship cards and decorations.
