The More Candles the Bigger the Wish Birthday Card

The Online Card Class Introduction to Color Theory has not only changed how I watercolor, but it has changed how I select colors for inks and Copic Markers.  This card uses analogous colors, which are side by side on a color wheel.  Once you understand the theory you can see how it is used in patterned papers, which inspire a color palette for a card.  I must have been in a blue, green, yellow mood because a lot of my cards lately have used this color scheme.

This is a digital image from Power Poppy that was printed and then cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  Copic Markers were used to color the image and 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension.
