Sometimes we make coloring a lot harder than it needs to be – too much panic about colors, shading, scenes, etcetera! In today’s video I’ll provide a little peptalk for the coloring-challenged….because if coloring stresses you out, you’re doing it wrong!

On my blog, the first video…with a stamp set that’s been discontinued.

This simple card – one layer – shows just how simple a scene can be. Little additions like the placement of the image and a haze of grass…not a ton is needed to create a super sweet card.

Just for a little fun and unique-ness to the card, I trimmed a little from the front panel, letting the inside show through…and then created a haze of the color of the girl’s dress to coordinate with the picture.

This video is still on the MFT channel – but the blog post and photos have been archived:
