Black and Blue....

....thought I'd go for a bold color combo today:

be yourself one of a kind

This is a very simple card and my main color scheme was black, charcoal, cerulean, and soft pool....once again, I just had to play with some more Color Layering, too fun!

I changed this card several times and with several colors....also realized that Color Layering can be tricky too! Too much layering of colors can make the image look like a total mess! Which it was! So I turned to the old stand-by of keeping it simple and centered....The two lighter shades are in the background and the darkest shade of black is the central focus.

Thanks for stopping by today!
