Oooooh lookee, first coloring video of 2019! W00t! And it’s monsters. And the new Pantone color for the year: Living Coral.
A heads up: Facebook live chat tonight 5-6pm Pacific, talking color—in the Art Classes student group!

When coloring a “single” color like Living Coral, build a set of colors around it – darker and lighter. And be prepared to adjust a little, like I did by adding a tidge of R22 to the R0 family to make it a little pink-er.
I’ve kept my cards really simple – just glued them onto card bases and rounded the bottom two corners.
Play with the position of stamps – sometimes having them slide off the card front entirely makes for a super playful card!
I stamped the heart and words above the little blue monster before stamping him – and just had to draw in little arms. The other monster needed just a triangle of paper to wrap his little bouquet!
