Colour wheel for Simply Saturdays

and welcome to our final Colour Wheel day. Hope you enjoyed this week and that it has helped you a bit if you were struggling with colours. 
Gay has done it again with three stunning C&S (one layer) cards. Same stamp and design, but they look so different because of the colours.
Let us know what you think...

These are my cards for the colour week, 1 of each Analogous, Complimentary and Triadic. All three are one layer cards.

This is the Triadic combination using orange green and violet.

This is the Analogous combination, using Purple, Blue and Lighter Blue.

And this the Complimentary version using Dark Blue and Light Orange.

Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black the Gorguss Girl is a lovely open design with plenty of room for colour. I stamped her on 3 blank cards and then onto Eclipse tape, cut her out and masked her on the card, I used the same mask for all 3 cards and still have it saved for future use, value for money , oh yes!
Tearing a piece of copy paper gives a mask for the horizon, which I sponged with Cut and Dry and Distress inks. The other piece of the torn paper gives the mask for the skyline. I also masked the margin because I didn't want the colour to flood all over the card. I removed all the masks and painted the Gorguss Girl with Distress inks. Her hair was coloured with Copics and kept neutral to emphasize the colours used.
No sentiments because I think you could almost get her to say anything :  Happy Birthday, get well soon, hello, sorry I forgot, are just a few that come to mind!
