Secondary Colors


Lesson #9 – Color Theory: Secondary Colors

            Secondary Colors are the direct counterparts of the primary colors — red, yellow, and blue. Orange (a combination of red and yellow), green (a combination of blue and yellow), and purple (a combination of red and blue) are the secondary colors. You can find them in between their primary colors on the color wheel.

             Here is my homework for this lesson, using Orange, Purple and Green. 
A little story first.  I ordered this stamp, (and a few others) from MFT on Tuesday.  After placing the order, I discovered that I already had one of the dies that I just ordered.  Common on, you have done that before, right?  Well, I quickly send them a message to please take off the duplicate die, if it was not a problem.  They responded quickly, and happily refunded my money to PayPal, and then sent out the order the same day! I didn't even have to talk to anyone.   I got it yesterday and I am using this cute bear on this card today.
The End!
Recipe:  Base, Sweet mango, and layer of Wild Orchid, GKD
On Water color paper, I used the purple and orange water colors from Kuretake
Bear is from the Birthday Bears and is stamped and fussy cut, colored with copic markers
I paper pieced the balloon, because I accidentally colored it purple and I wanted to use green. 
Sequins form Pretty Pink Posh 
 Well, I am almost caught up with homework, just one more card to do. 

Thanks so much for stopping in and I really do appreciate that you take time to make comments.
