Marker Pop Tuesday Tip - Choosing Color Schemes

mp 6.4.13.3 
Hello! Michelle popping in again with a Tuesday Tip for MarkerPop..and this week I'm sharing how I pick my color schemes for my cards.
 mp 6.4.13.1 

I start by selecting a piece of patterned paper that catches my eye. It may not even be a piece that I end up using on my end project. In this case I selected one sheet of paper from a 6x6 pad and based by color scheme from it. You can see I was testing markers as I went...some Copics I know well enough that I don't have to color test, and others I just grab a handful that I think might work and match up my paper to my tests and go from there.
 mp 6.4.13.2 
In this case, these were the ones I went with with the exception of the orange/papaya color which I took from an old alcohol marker collection I had.

Also..be sure to shop your stamp collection for sentiments! My main image and my sentiment are from two different companies, but it stretches your card making varieties if you mix and match!

I know I should do this, but it doesn't always happen :-)!! I also mix and match my stamps - I think I had stamps from three different companies and sets on a card last week.
