Monster Birthday

Hey Peeps :)


This kind of image scares me.  Not because it's fiddly to colour, or has complex details, but, because it needs so many different colours in it! If you know me, you'll see I tend to limit my colour palette, to three, maybe four colours. Any more than that and I am scratching my head in dismay. I don't have a good eye for colour, which, considering that I spend so much time colouring, is hilarious. I can look at a colour and know exactly what shades I need to mix to get an exact likeness. But. Does purple go with red? Umm... ;)

And before I scoot of to check and see... new Challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today... Anything Goes... see you there!

I think you have an excellent eye for colour!
This card is fantastic, and thanks for letting me know what brand the star border is, your 'small print' isn't small enough! (joking, lol)
I think I will have to buy that die on my next shopping trip :)
