A little over a year ago, Marianne Walker posted a couple of Color Spotlights on her blog. Let's just say she had me at 'Hello'. I was hooked. I have taken a few colors on my own and began generating my own color combinations, using established color theory guidelines and hope to feature a couple of these semi-monthly. It's a wonderful way to occupy myself when traveling. I'm also adding the computer's interpretation of these colors.
Today's color is the ever useful, and pale B00. I use it so often, I found it was actually, finally needing reinking today! And for some reason, it looks like BOO (as in Halloween), so it was today's choice. LOL!

*Interpretations based on Adobe Kuler tool using the digital representation of the Copic Color Spectrum. I generate these as suggestions for color combos to try when you are looking for a nice change, or you have a paper that matches this particular color and you want help picking other unusual colors to go with it. These are highly subjective and MY interpretations based on on-screen samplings.
From my worksheet, I have created this card; using the Compound color swatches as the basis for my color choices.
