Triadic Color Schemes

Our emphasis is on color this year here at Stamper's Quest with the monthly challenges focusing on different color schemes, so I thought I would continue that topic here on my blog post.  The sample I have made today uses a triadic color scheme.  Specifically, my card uses yellow orange, green blue and red violet.  So what is a triadic color scheme? Let's look at a color wheel.

A color triad is three colors spaced equally apart from one another on the color wheel, such as yellow, red and blue.  Here's another picture of a color wheel.

This shows purple, orange and green, another triadic scheme.

And here is my card, using yellow orange, blue green and red violet.

I'm including a supply list here, but no step by step directions.

Remember, when choosing colors it's always helpful to consult the color wheel.  Next time, why not try a triadic color scheme for a beautifully balanced card.
