I've enjoyed all contributions on this thread so much. Thank you RSC folks! Just to add a bit...I've found the color wheel to be a great help for both inspiration and figuring out how/why colors might "go" or not. I put off buying one for a long time, but since breaking down and picking one up, I've been pleased often to have it at my stamping table. Debra

How does the Color Wheel help you, Debra? Do you use the Color Wheel to help you choose color combinations? Or maybe to find complimentary colors?? Do you choose colors close to each other on the Color Wheel?

The Color Wheel is a great tool!

Check out this tool to help use the color wheel... http://colorschemedesigner.com/


It helps with Monochrome, Compliments, Triad, Tetrad, Analogic... Choose a color scheme type, move the dot around on the left image and the right side changes accordingly.

Thanks for the link, Lyneen. I own a color wheel, I just never remember to get it out when I'm creating. Mostly I look at print fabrics and such that I like and borrow/snitch color combos from those.

I use it for all of the above. Sometimes when I'm "stuck" on what color would go with what, I look at what's opposite, what's next to it, etc. My color wheel is a "Pick, Point and Match" Rainbow Color Selector. I don't usually tout brands, but this one works for me because of the little wheel that rotates and then points to the various possible color selections using color theory and the colors' positions on the wheel. See this website for a much better explanation than I can provide: http://www.tigercolor.com/color-lab/...eory-intro.htm

The Color Selector wheel has little windows that allow me to see how close the color on the wheel is to the color of paper I happen to be using.

It helps me confirm and understand why I've chosen various combinations that seem to look good; and, on the other hand, the wheel also helps me to identify what might look good based on what paper I have available.
