Challenging Color Schemes

By | 11/18/2013

I love a challenging color scheme.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love participating in sketch and color challenges.  My challenge for today was to use crumb cake, gumball green and pool party!  I know what you’re thinking!  I was thinking it too! What a crazy combination and where is the “pop” of color?
