If you have made it to this page then you are probably as hooked on colouring as I am. What started as a little scribble with my mum’s 3 brown copic markers has turned into quite an obsession. Colouring is a hobby that I do to unwind, invigorate or to inspire depending on what is needed at the time. Yes, I was a little embarrassed at first. Hubby, “Isn’t colouring for children”. Me, “I suppose”. 18 months down the track I am no longer embarrassed. I am proud. Proud to be learning such a beautiful art and proud to be sharing it with others.
We that’s enough about that. Let’s get into the fun stuff. That’s what you guys are here for!
Here is a card I made using one of my favourite Sweet Escape Digital Stamps called “Celebrate”. I coloured her using Copics. I like to start with the skin then move to hair and finally clothing. I decided to ‘dot’ the dress with different Copic and Zig Wink Of Stella markers to give a sequin effect.
The card was super easy to put together. I cut out a 15cm by 15cm card in purple card stock and then tore and layered some sheets of patterned paper for some dimension. I printed the sentiment on my computer and then cut it out and embellished it with some white/gold Frantage Embossing powder which has to be heat set. The card needed a little bit more dimension so I went hunting through my ribbon stash and made a pretty bow to balance the card. Finally I added Perfect Pearls to her earrings and necklace for a little bit more glitz. I hope you like the end result!!
