Colorful Swallowtail

I love this card.  We made this one at my swallowtail class a few months ago.  I used my color coach to help me choose the right color combination for this beautiful creature.  I started with Summer Starfruit and added the creative combination that was suggested.  Then I chose to use Night of Navy b/c it was the dynamic duo to Baja Breeze.  I am so happy to have this tool to help me pick great color combinations.

A quick note.  My class embossed in black and it didn't look nearly as good as the espresso.  My bad.  You are using markers to color in the blank areas, but keep in mind that you should take a tissue b/t colors and wipe the area.  The marker ink will still be wet sitting on the embossed edge so you need to rub it clean or the side of your hand will spread ink where you don't want it.  Just keep that in mind.
