I like to make handmade cards and my dogs are with me every step of the way. I have cardboard boxes from Costco with pillows made up for them to sleep in while I make my cards, so I have boxes of dogs! Three of my little ones have gone over the Rainbow Bridge, but I know they are still watching over me.

Monochromatic Card for OWH Design Bootcamp - Basic Color Theory Class
Paula's class for Operation Write Home on basic color theory (found here) is a fantastic resource for planning color schemes for cards. I learned some great basics which I have lacked since I pretty much come by my color mixing and matching skills from quilting, knitting, and counted cross stitching. I decided to make another card using this week's OWH sketch since I had decided against making it yesterday, but it would not leave me alone, so I made it for today's class since it fits in with the monochromatic color scheme portion of today's class.

Candi Dots colored with black Copic marker
Basic Grey papers
In case it helps anyone, I used 3-M foam tape (Sandy's precious) for the Candi Dots. I used a hole puncher - the size that punches the 3-ring binder sized holes - to punch a sticky dot for the backs of the Candi Dots. I really like the size and height of them better than the pre-made squares that are made for the Dots.
