I Still Love to Color

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.
