Well, I hope you were able to read it okay. I do a strip in this style every year and they are the colors of “papel picado”.
Very nice, Jonathan!
Purple, pink and orange are the key tones employed for the “ofrendas” associated with the Day of the Dead, although there are many other colors depending on saints, geographical location, etc. I actually scanned some real “papel picado” to get this color (and the colors for the last four DOTD strips which you can see over at my blog – see link on right).
