Bella Parade '13 : Post # 19

Hi again,
I'm back with another color!
Yesterday's color, as most of you guessed right, was Lagoon!
Bella Solids Lagoon Yardage SKU# 9900-270

And here's todays

And here are the hints

1. I am a metal and you can also follow me!
2. I can also mean a term for metal miniature figures used in wargaming, which were once commonly made from an alloy, the amount of distance aimed in front of a moving target, also known as deflection, a city in South Dakota, United States or the first part of Hangul syllable, the same as syllable onset or "initial"!!!
3. _ _ A _

To make the monochromatic scheme, I'll use it with Silver and Charcoal

Bella Solids Charcoal Yardage SKU# 9900-284

For the complementary scheme, I'd pair it with White Bleached

Bella Solids White Bleached Yardage SKU# 9900-98

For the creative scheme, I will go with an elegant combination using Zen Grey and Daffodil

Bella Solids Zen Grey Yardage SKU# 9900-185
