Default Which colour group do you use the most?

Since we're all talking about colours today, which colour group are you drawn to? Which do you use the least?

The one I use the most is Earth Elements (as well as Pefect Plum and Bliss Blue from Soft Subtles). The one I definitely use the least is Rich Regals. I hardly ever open those colours.

So, what do you all think on this topic?

My usage depends on the season. Right now I'm using soft subtles & bold brights.

Most often I use Bold Brights plus Ballet Blue.

Yah, I also think it depends on if you are a scrapper. I find I will use Rich Regals if the colours in the pictures I'm scrapbooking match. But that's the only time I use them...

I use Bold Brights and Earth Elements the most. Not a big fan of Rich Regal myself. They are nice but I'm drawn toward the others.

1. Bold Brights (All the colors)
2. Earth Elements (mainly the browns and black of course)
3. Rich Regals (mainly the blues)
4. Soft Subtles (mainly positively pink, bliss blue, mellow moss)

I use RR,SS and EE - just got BB but haven't started using them. I use my favorite colors from each group & don't really end up using more of one group than another.

Mellow Moss goes great with so many colors; so does Old Olive. I LOVE Old Olive & Marvelous Magenta together!

I pretty much stick to BB and EE. Almost never use RR. Use SS for Easter/Spring and baby stuff. This thread is making me think i need to come out of my box a little!

I can't say as to which dolor family I use the most, I can say that I use real red, barely banana, bliss blue, basic black, brillant blue, green galore the most. Not together, with the exception of real red and barely banana. Those are the ones I have to buy most often. The least I would say is rich regals.

I use the bold brights the most with out a doubt, I like the earth elements also though and the soft subtles, I have never had a need for the rich regals though other than the forest foliage paper...

When I was first introduced to SU!, I was drawn first to the Bold Brights, then to the Rich Regals. I didn't like the Soft Subtles or the Earth Elements at all. However, once I started stamping, I use the EE and SS colors ALL THE TIME and rarely use the Bold Brights.

Do you think it's worth the money to get all set of ink pads or get the sets in markers and slowly work your way to all the pads? Do you perfer classic or craft?

I use the Rich Regals the most as a group.

The ONE color I use the most is Garden Green.

I use Bold Brights the least.

I mostly am an EE kind of girl. I have been trying out other color families lately, and I like them too, but EE is definitely my favorite.

I don't have the markers or the classic ink pads (I have all the stampin' spots). I think if I had to make a choice, I'd go with the markers. However, if I'm going to become a demo (which I'd like to do in about a year), then it would be more beneficial in the long run to start collecting the big ink pads.

As for the craft pads, all I have is the white craft. Don't see a need to buy any more of those. They take soooo long to dry!!

Mine vary as time changes. I used to never use earth elements, but lately I am loving them with Rose Romance and Rose Red.

Default Colors

I LOVE BB and SS the most and have full sets of the Classic ink pads and Markers in both color families. I then use EE and RR about even. I love colors from all 4 families but am absolutely drawn to the BB first. (Gable Green, Positively Pink and Lovely Lilac my most favorite color combo!)

This is a great thread!

I use mostly BB then SS. I forced myself last night to work with only the EE colors and came up with 2 cute cards. Once I learn how to upload from my digital camera I will start a gallery!

When I first started I used EE and RR the most. But, now it depends on the season and who and shat Iam making the cards for. When I scrap I use whatever matches the moment or colors in the pics.

It all depends on the project (of course), I really like the RR and the EE. I find I use the BB on occasion and hardly ever do I use the SS (unless it's for a baby card). I love all the colors and couldn't live without even one!
