Question Question of the Week: What is a "Classic" color combination for you?

Last week I asked what was a "classic" technique for you. One that would never go out of style

This week I want to know what is "Classic" color combination for you? This is a color combo that you turn to when all else fails. The color combo that never seems to go out of style with you.

My "classic" is black and white and red. I can mix these with anything, kraft, blue, green. Or they can stand on their own, using as little or as much of each color. I know this combo always works for me.



Here is a card I did with those colors with kraft (Yes, I consider pink, red), using our Build-A-Bingo and Feeling Cupidy set and Lacy Floral Doily CutUps

Now it's your turn. What is "Classic" color combination for you?

Oh I love pinks and browns together, as well as blues and browns. I always seem to go to that combo when I'm stuck on something.

Adorable card!!!

White/Cream paired with Aqua or Purple or Pink!

Here is one of my all time favorite TCP cards that I have ever made with a cream/purple/green color scheme!

I really like hot pink and orange together. I also love a rich red with olive green or brown.

Wow! I'm bookmarking this thread and using it for future reference when I'm stuck! Seriously all great combos!!

I tend to take my colors from patterned papers but I love kraft and white/cream popped with a color - almost anything looks good, red, teal, green, etc., etc. I also love that soft sky aqua/blue color with red.

And YES to Tinkerbell1958's colors - pink & orange and yes some chartreuse - LOVE!

Kraft and just about anything else. Especially red or pink. Or purple. or blue.

Funny, I like the look of those combos, but I don't really make that many cards with them. hmmmmmm...... what does mean??

Default classic card colors

Mine would be chocolate brown and pink. I can dress it up, dress it down,
make it somber or festive as needed.

I love a soft shade of green, and I love the fact that it looks wonderful with just about any other color! (Especially Kraft...lol!)

I like to keep a smash book of color combos that I like. If I see something I really like I print it out and put it in my book. Great way to get color combos that I normally would not think to put together.
