shout out to cathy. she sent the bottom one and said, "the fluorescent markers overwhelmed the orange in the stamp." so, rather than learn from her learning experience, i went ahead and started to color things in and mine were also overwhelming. so i switched to texture. i went over the too heavy blue with white gel pen to create texture. much better. i like her big circles a lot and will probably be stealing them.
at some point there will be more lettering like the cathy. i sent her something that i thought was so ugly, i did not even scan it and then she said she liked it, so i went back and tried to do some more of it to see if i could get a version i liked and it's coming along.
