I didn't have a soft yellow DSP, so I used a brighter one. I had to use brighter colors for the background and the embellishments to make it look right. I used Pan Pastels to make the sunset sky in the background. They are SOOO easy...I love using them to make backgrounds! I also tried a new coloring technique for adding texture when coloring with Prismacolor Pencils. You use a fine point stylus to press a pattern into the card stock and then when you color over it the pattern lines (dots) stay white!! I found out that you can't use Gamsol for this technique because it makes the color bleed onto the white lines. Here's a close up of the plaid pattern...
And here is how it looks with a dotted pattern! Ohhh...ahhhh...imagine the possibilities!!
