In which I talk through some of my many color choices – and re-choices when I pick the wrong one first. Never give up, just keep going!
The number of times I change my mind on which color to use is rather vast…it’s one of the reason I work in layers, constantly able to vary what I’m working with!

If that was too much to take in – remember to use the most saturated colors in the foreground, and the desaturated (natural, more greyed-out colors) in the background. Whitest whites in the front will make those images pull forward, as do darkest darks. The eye loves to see contrast!

Thank you for sharing your God given talents!!!!! I soooooo appreciate every ounce of instruction you so carefully put together.
This is just adorable
It was great to see how you changed colours and making it work for the card.
I love the card, today whe have finally sun after weeks of cold, rainy and windy weather and
what’s better than a sunny day and a delicious watermelon!
Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
Amazing what you can do by adding and changing colors. Wish I had that talent. Love this scene you made. Especially the way the bear turned out. So cute.
Fantastic card. Thank you for the great tips.
