"Directly copying another designer’s color scheme might be considered lazy. In some cases, it can even be considered copyright infringement. A recent case involving Seven Towns, the makers of Rubik’s Cube, versus Dayan, demonstrates that while color schemes themselves can’t be copyrighted, the order and placement of colors can be. It’s why Dayan replaced its orange with purple."

On your other concern, simply attributing something to the creator does not give you the right to use it. All rights accrue to the creator (except in work-for-hire situations). It sounds like you got permission so the creator extended you some rights to use the works. You should be fine. It is always a good idea to get rights assignments in writing. This is especially true if you did plan to use works for your own commercial gain. Doing so avoids "he said, she said" conflicts later on.

The creator may of course request payment or royalties for use of the work. The rights to use it are only as broad as the creator releases to you---first edition, use on Tmblr, unlimited rights, etc. The creator may insist on a nearby credit or attribution. Again, I don't see you in trouble give the way you have approached this.

Most of the examples shown so far show colors in a different order than the original palette. While the original palette could be protected, and the creator might have a claim of infringement if it were copied exactly, once the colors are rearranged it is considered a different palette. There is no violation, at least legally. Sadly this is true no matter how obvious the similarities.
