Tulips are, possibly, my favorite flower. I am pretty partial to spring flowers, such as daffodils, hyacinth and narcissus, so it is hard to say. One reason I like them is that florists don’t tend to pair tulips with baby’s breath. I sincerely dislike baby’s breath. I had white tulips for my wedding bouquet and DH often gives me white tulips when he wants to give me flowers. They are also delicate and simple.
Above is the original image I uploaded to the Playcrafts Palette Builder tool. I can’t remember where I took it.
The first palette is appealing. I like the Coral and Black combination with the other neutrals included.
Since I have to mess around with the palettes, I moved the little circles and came up with a slightly brighter palette. I love the addition of Kona Red and the Kona Snow to this option.
Fiddling further allowed me to add another warm hue, Kona Tangerine to the mix. This grouping is getting quite warm.
The Kona Snow and the Kona Coal seemed to want to stick to the palette. This palette has no more greens, but includes an icy blue called Frappe.
This final palette is probably my favorite. I was excited to be able to move the circles in such a way as to add Kona Carnation. I have been using Aurifil 2479, a lovely carnation-like pink for another project, and loving it. It was so nice to see a similar hue show up in this palette.
Let me know if you make anything with these palettes. Thanks to Anne over at Play-crafts for her tool.
