One of the main reasons why I loved the For the Birds set in the catalog when it first came out was because it has images that you can watercolor. I have always loved to color and I still do. There’s something that is so relaxing and calming about coloring.
I made this card using this week’s sketch over at the Retrosketches site.
I got the color combination straight from the Color Coach. I find that I use that helpful tool quite a bit, as it provides suggested color combinations for each color. Plus, I use it a lot to just see what different color combinations would look like together.
