Stamping Study Hall: Creative Color, Day 2

Thanks to everyone who joined in for Monday's first lesson. :)
class one Creative Color
Are you ready for day 2?
Day 2
I am often asked how I decide upon my color schemes, and to be honest, I don't know what I did before Pinterest!!  I LOVE collecting ideas on my Pinterest board Color Combos. (Feel free to follow and repin if you'd like to start collecting ideas, too.)  Whenever I see anything that appeals to me color-wise I add it to my board.  Then, when I'm looking for an idea, I pull up my board and pick a favorite.
Here is the inspiration photo used for today's video sample:
And my interpretation of this color scheme...
In today's video, I will discuss my approach in "translating" from inspiration photo to stamped image.

(Watch directly on YouTube HERE.)
Here are two more samples where I also used Pinterest for my inspiration.
Thanks for visiting today. 
I hope you are inspired to look around Pinterest for color inspiration, too!
