Welcome to a new Color Hues challenge! Our latest colour duo is BLUE and MAGENTA. I'm finding this challenge is quite educational! I know what colour I think of as magenta, but when it came time to plan my card, I decided to double check, and magenta can be quite lighter in hue than I would normally think it, and also darker, closer to a purple. But then I discovered I had an ink called magenta, and I was all set!
Since my magenta ink was a Colorbox pigment ink, I now also know how nicely pigment inks blend! I used magenta and peony, along with two blue distress inks for my sky. Originally I was going to make a birch tree scene, but then at the last minute totally changed my mind and created this paper-pieced, hot-beverage-drinking bear. (His cheeks and ears aren't pink, they're just a really pale shade of magenta... :D) Even the not-blue stripe in my plaid paper worked!
There is a gorgeous array of blue and magenta creations on the Color Hues blog - some are Christmas (it is December now, after all) but there are a few other occasions represented, too. Feast your eyes, and then I hope you'll join us!
