Patch in the Patch! (Take 2)
Decided to revise my "Patch in the Patch" card (see previous post) by changing the colors of the pumpkins. Orange is a color that "pops" and catches your eye. In the previous one, I used dark brown (fluid chalk) to stamp the pumpkins and then colored them with orange and a dark orange for depth. They really pop, so Patch gets a little lost because his color is lighter. In this version, I used a color that was a little less bold (burnt sienna) to stamp the pumpkins. Same orange marker, but then I used light grey to add depth and tone down the orange. Better, but because the pumpkins are orange, I think they are still contending a little with Patch for the front spot. What do you think - which one do you like better?
