Default Halloween color combos?

I never thought that I was color challenged, but I'm finding out different, lol!

I'm making Halloween cards and have used the traditional black/orange combo some, but I'm looking for something different. I tried purple and green, with black accents, but I'm not sure I'm liking that. The stamp I'm using is Black Hat Trio, with the 3 witches hats, I love it!

What colors do you use on Halloween cards? I'll be checking the gallery too for ideas.

Thanks-Lisa

How about black, purple and blue? Maybe with a little silver?

Debbie Olsen used a nice combination of purple, black and sort of yellow-orange for this project on her blog. http://debbiedesigns.typepad.com/mus...y-cracker

What about orange, yellow and white like candy corn? Since witches hats are pointed like candy corn, you might be able to incorporate both and make it really cute.

I really like the purple and black. I even did a couple of my minty spiders with that combo and even Red/black ones too. I also like Green/Black and yellow/black as Halloween combos.

I don't have a card to share now but I did one that used gable green, pumpkin pie and taken with teal. It was refreshingly different. It matched one of the older SU designer paper.

Purple/orange(pumpkin)/green (wasabi)/black/artichoke........ For some reason they just seem to say Halloween to me. Not necesarrily all together, but some form of that. I love purple, so I try to use as much as I can!!

I agree with orange, purple, black & green! We grabbed a package of m&m's this weekend and those were the colors in the bag - and I immediately thought of card colors!

Check out my gallery. I have made all sorts of them with the Halloween colors and their own personality. Working on more tonight. I can't upload the 2 I just completed until I get my computer back.

Good luck!
