Oh, LOVELY colors. Little scary though, soft light colors can be hard to work with. This will be FUN!!!

Re: NDC Round 1: Daybreak

Got the swatch, thank you. Of course, if I had switched my brain on, then I would have tried clicking on the image as well and wouldn't have had a minor meltdown panicking about getting a 404 error!

Re: NDC Round 1: Daybreak
 
Ummm... I'm still getting an error - even if I click on the swatch...

I do love those colours though!

Got the swatch, thank you everyone. Beautiful colors though

tailz61 09-01-2011 05:39 AM

Re: NDC Round 1: Daybreak
 
ooh forgot too say I love those colours :)

Toiny 09-01-2011 05:39 AM

Re: NDC Round 1: Daybreak
 
Yay! And if me posting the swatch is all that goes wrong... well, color me happy (pun so intended).

I'm glad, so far, the swatch is liked. I know it is not everyone's cup-of-tea. The world would be boring if it was, but I'm hoping the Challenge of using it stretches all your wings.

I adore pale colors also, and I love this swatch, just a question and I am so sorry for start bothering but Toiny, when you say solid papers you mean without texture, without nothing, just solid with a single color?
Just wondering since I always work with textures, even in solid papers and soft ones, I am used to use some kind of texture , and I don't want to start and do it wrong, thanks so much...I love this contest already.

Toiny 09-01-2011 05:45 AM

Re: NDC Round 1: Daybreak
 
Eeek! NO Karen. I mean solid with texture. Even with some variation of color throughout, or on the edges. I mean without pattern.

Please do use texture.

And you are never a bother. Please ask away... any & all.
