Reference Code-

import colorama
from colorama import Fore, Back, Style
colorama.init(autoreset=True)
# autoreset=True resets the color background and style to default
print()
print(f"{Fore.RED}C{Fore.GREEN}O{Fore.YELLOW}L{Fore.BLUE}O{Fore.MAGENTA}R{Fore.CYAN}S{Fore.WHITE}!")
print(f"{Fore.RED}Red Text")
print(f"{Fore.GREEN}Green Text")
print(f"{Fore.YELLOW}Yellow Text")
print(f"{Fore.BLUE}Blue Text")
print(f"{Fore.MAGENTA}Magenta Text")
print(f"{Fore.CYAN}Cyan Text")

print(f"{Back.RED}B{Back.GREEN}A{Back.YELLOW}C{Back.BLUE}K{Back.MAGENTA}G{Back.CYAN}R{Back.WHITE}O{Back.RED}U{Back.GREEN}N{Back.YELLOW}D{Back.BLUE}!")
print(f"{Back.RED}Red Background")
print(f"{Back.GREEN}Green Background")

print(f"{Style.DIM}Dim Text")
print(f"{Style.NORMAL}Normal Text")
print(f"{Style.BRIGHT}Bright Text")
print()
print(f"{Fore.YELLOW}{Back.RED}C{Back.GREEN}{Fore.RED}O{Back.YELLOW}{Fore.BLUE}M{Back.BLUE}{Fore.BLACK}B{Back.MAGENTA}{Fore.CYAN}I{Back.CYAN}{Fore.GREEN}N{Back.WHITE}A{Back.RED}T{Back.GREEN}I{Back.YELLOW}O{Back.BLUE}N")
print(f"{Fore.GREEN}{Back.YELLOW}{Style.BRIGHT}Green Text - Yellow Background - Bright")
