My Favorite Tools - The Color Coach

Hello stampers!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As I look around me and see nature waking and the beautiful rich colors returning, I find myself mesmerized by the wonder and beauty of it all.  But color combinations on a project?  Oh how I struggle!  That is, how I used to struggle.  Until I broke down and bought the tool I thought was a waste of money - the Color Coach, #130118.  Supplements are issued annually with the new In Colors.





Have you used this great tool?  Let me show you some of the features.  The front of the card displays a nice large color sample with the color name and the color grouping displayed.



The back of the card gives suggestions for 2 different color combinations and a Dynamic Duo, perfect for those monochromatic projects!




Here is a card I made a while back that I totally relied on the Color Coach to guide my color selection.  I knew what I wanted for my base color, but what to pair it with?  This has been one of my most highly commented cards, strictly for the color selection.



Next time you are considering what colors to use for your project, just reach for your Color Coach!
