Default What colors go well with copper?

Hi All,

I'm not really into using copper yet, but I'd like to get some ideas. I have some copper metal edged tags and I was going to use them on a card today, but I am stumped...What colors do you think coordinate well with copper?

I have a card in my gallery with pink and copper if you'd like to check it out.

I agree with Jody ~ pink is a good color to go with copper.

A lot of the Rich Regals go great with Copper. My fav is Baroque Burgandy.

I also like Pink, Passion and Lavender Lace with Copper.

All of the Earth Elements go great with copper. I can't think of any color except gray that it wouldn't go with.

I did a card with Night of Navy and copper and it looked great! I also used the copper magic mesh.

The prettiest card I've seen done with copper used mellow moss and old olive with it. Made me want to order copper stuff!

Default Copper

I think Night of Navy and Forest Foliage go very well with copper. I haven't really done a whole lot of experimenting with copper either yet so this is a great question for me too! Thanks for asking!

Default I *love* copper!

One of my favorite ways to use it is to do a polished stone background with copper re-inker and forest foliage, then I stamp/emboss with copper.

Vanilla looks awesome with the copper! you can emboss with the copper and then add layers of copper c/s over the main card of vanilla.

Try it with a bold line stamp (copper Encore! and EP) on vanilla. Layer on Copper paper. Layer on Vanilla card. Stamp words on card with Encore!Copper but don't emboss them (let dry thoroughly b4 placing in envelope)

So many great suggestions! I would add that other metallics go with copper. Bronze, gold, rose gold, pale gold. And roses, burgundies, and pinks. Think of it as a red-brown

Default copper colors

Clearly, there is quite a variety of answers to this question.
My FAVORITE copper look is with Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip. I think it looks very rich!
I have used my copper supplies a TON!

my favorite is to pair it with, you guessed it, eggplant envy. I love the way they make each other look so rich.
