Colors of Halloween


I thought I would incorporate my new fondness for making color palettes into the latest blog challenge about Halloween for the Greeting Card Universe Community Blog. If you read my previous post it will tell you a little about my new addiction. Here I have made 2 color palettes that scream the telltale colors of the Halloween season! I hope you enjoy them.

Please check out these colorful and spooky Halloween cards available at Greeting Card Universe.
You can also find all Halloween cards at GCU here,

My New Addiction~Color Palletes


Last week I came across color palettes made from photos.They have been a great source of inspiration in my card making. I found them on Pinterest (a site that I am also addicted to!). Most of the palettes posted on Pinterest are from a blog, Design Seeds. I love them so much that I am making my own. I have always loved color and I think I was the only kid in 10th grade art that loved the intense color chart project! Here are the palettes I have so far. I plan on adding them as I make them. I hope they give inspiration to someone as they have to me.

Here are cards from Greeting Card Universe that match the theme of each of my color palettes, just for fun!
