This is a great versatile color. If you are looking for pizzazz pair it with either Apple of My Eye or Pomegranate. Mix a few of the values together for a pretty light to medium background. It's nice with Red Violet Joy, Magenta Marble Parfait and Bright Shiraz. It blends well with Emerald Isles, Seabottom, Sea World, Tickle Me Teal Green, and Blue Joy just to name a few. It's a useful piece to have in your stash. Cool Cat Aqua runs between Aqua Blue and Turquoise, not quite a match to either but a bit closer to Aqua Blue.

Lagoon Blue is a pretty Aqua Blue that will be a great addition to your stash. The lighter value is great to blend with other various blue hues for water highlights and Darker Lagoon Blue is a great background color. Lovely with reds and oranges.
