I thought I would do a formal introduction of the April colors today!  I present Summer Sunrise & Lemon Tart!

Summer Sunrise is a golden yellow-orange color.  It has just a few undertones of tangerine to it too.  I love the way it can be paired with many of our other colors and take on different looks.  For example, when combined with lemon tart it has a softer appearance.  But when used with Aqua Mist it become much more prominent & bright.

Lemon Tart is a beautiful soft buttercream yellow.  I have been wanting a yellow like this for a long time.  It is a little more "yellow" than a lot of the pastel yellows out there.  This color in Palette ink is vibrant enough that you could even use it for a sentiment.

Here is a comparison chart to SU! colors. (you can click on it to enlarge.)   Papertrey’s Summer Sunrise falls right in between Summer Sun & Marigold Morning.  Summer Sunrise is a lot more orange than Summer Sun, but not as deep in color as Marigold Morning.  (Although it was difficult to capture the differences here.)  Papertrey’s Lemon Tart has a lot more yellow in it than Barely Banana, but obviously isn’t nearly as bright as Yoyo Yellow.

I love both of these new colors and I know you will too!
