Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Delightful Dijon

Delightful Dijon Moose Any Occasion Card - Visit

The Yellow-Orange Color Group has a nice range of colors included. I’ve discussed them previously in the Crushed Curry and Hello Honey Colors of the Week Articles. The Tone of this group is Delightful Dijon, which appeared in the examples with those articles as the Contrast Color. Since this is Delightful Dijon’s week to be featured, I didn’t want to use another member of the Color Group as the Contrast in a Monochromatic Color Scheme, so I picked it from the Neutrals.

You may remember that Neutrals don’t count in the Color Scheme of things – they go with everything and are outside the Color Wheel. Neutrals are the utility players in Color Combinations and almost always create a pleasing combination. Today’s Neutral is Chocolate Chip. I picked it because the warmth of the Brown color contrasts well with the warmth of Delightful Dijon. Besides, I’d used Soft Suede before and wanted something more vivid. I will talk more about Neutrals when I finish introducing the rest of Stampin’ Up!®’s colors.

This color combination works for Any Occasion. The card design in the photo can function as Birthday, Thank You, Congratulations or Sympathy. You can change the greeting or sentiment and the image to suit. The Monochromatic Color Scheme provides a touch of elegance to your card and is great for pages, too.
