Always In My Thoughts
Apparently adult colouring books are now in the top bestseller lists. Who knew? Well, WE did, didn't we, fellow cardmakers? There is no better therapy than sitting down with some stamped images and colouring them. This month over at Power Poppy, the very talented Christine Okken challnges us to colour........Oh, but wait, she is asking us to use PENCILS. UhOh.......now that IS a challenge for a copic addict like me. So I closed my copic case and dug out an old tin of Derwent colour pencils. I chose the Power Poppy Winter Pick Me Up digital image and sentiment and made a tag with the sentiment and coloured the image with colour pencils (different to the copics but quite fun after all!). I die cut the image piece with a Spellbinders classic oval and then die cut some more white card with a Spellbinders Opulent Oval die. The papers for this project came from Kaisercraft's Magic Happens Collection and were layered onto purple card. Some rhinestone flourishes for a bit of sparkle and it was done.
Derwent Colours used were: Imperial Purple, Prussian Blue, Deep Cadmium, Mineral Green.
Thanks for visiting!
