Here’s a nice springy color for today, a soft but opaque apricot. I like yellow and orange a lot, but they can look really garish and Halloweeny with my pale hands.
This one was really easy to make- I used one of my favorite tricks, working gray into the mix to mute a color and make it more flattering for us pale gals. I think this would also look good on darker tones, but maybe a little strange on olive complexions. It would probably have a very “Barbie” look on other skin tones as it would really contrast, but that’s not always a bad thing!
This is medium red creme mixed with light gray to make a dusty rose. The gray should be the color of cigarette ash, or a piegon- not too dark, or you will get a muddy brown color when it’s mixed with the red.
After you make dusty pink, add some yellow drop by drop until you get the orange/apricot you want. I used Misa Happy Happy. After I got a color I liked, I added a few drops of creme white to it to lighten the color.
I thought apricot, white and red would be a nice fresh color combination. I Konaded the flowers (sorry, can’t recall which plate, but there are a lot of flower designs to choose from!) and then stuck on a couple of decals for that 3-D goodness.
