Yaayyyy Purple!

There it is. That color that's so hard for me to work with.  I love it, but struggle to use it.  Well, it happened today because that's what color dress Bella lucked out with.  You would laugh if you could watch me sit & agonize over which colors to use.  I just sit & stare at my Copic chart wondering which colors to use for my main images.  I stare at it like a color will become obvious & magically appear on the page yelling, "Use me! Use me!"  I think to myself, 'If I color her skin this color, will a yellow dress wash her out?  Don't use pink, you always use pink.  Would the blue be too dark?'  So, as you can see, the purple won this round.  Crazy, I know.  Also, I should mention that this is again, a digital image.  This is another of Mo's images, but this one is a freebie.  If you join her group at Paper Craft Planet or SNR Card Universe, you can download it for free. And as you can see, Bella is just tickled purple about it.

What a Happy card! Like, woo hoo! I'm so glad purple won out; it works perfectly with this image. But I thoroughly understand the color dilemma. My fellow art students know me enough by now and always say, Dee, what color are you going to paint THAT horse? Hmmm, don't know. And it frequently changes even after I finally pick a color. Ahhh, the agony of being an artist!

Bella is adorable. She LOVES the color you chose, and so do I. Too cute.
