Dare #9

**COLOUR Challenge**
Orange and Green plus ONE colour
I have a fondness for orange pattern paper. After looking in my stash I discovered I have been “collecting” it! So this is my challenge – don’t be afraid of colour! I challenge you to use orange and green together and you get to ADD one other colour of your choice (except black and white but this can be used for text and small embellishments)
No white or black cardstock backgrounds for me was a push outside my comfort zone but I loved the challenge! I hope you enjoy this one too!
This fortnight’s dare is kindly sponsored by Scrapbook Outlet and the prize is some Maya Road goodies (YUM!) Thanks Andrea!
Remember to link us to your online gallery or blog in the comments section please - or email a pic to RANDLGRAY@xtra.co.nz (100kbs or less) by Wednesday the 18th October by 6pm.

And a bit of interesting reading for you!
The meaning of colour! {taken from http://www.color-wheel-pro.com/ }
Orange
Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.
Orange has very high visibility, so you can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design.
Green
Green is the colour of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Green is the most restful colour for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance.

Look forward to seeing the creations this time. Enjoy the challenge!
