National Colouring Book Day
Did you know that it's National Colouring Book Day today? In honour of this, I am playing along with the colouring event over at STAMPlorations. Did you know that the wonderful Shery of STAMPlorations has just published a gorgeous Color Blooms colouring book which you can find here? And even better, if you hop over to STAMPlorations you can download a free page from the book to print and colour right now! And that's still not all - by linking up a picture of your coloured page you can win a copy of the colouring book. How awesome is that?
I started by printing the colouring page onto watercolour card. I then die cut a part of the page using the CUTplorations stitched die and watercoloured the flowers using Tim Holtz Distress ink (using very little water as my printer ink doesn't seem to be very waterproof). After the panel dried I inked around the edges in Ground Espresso using a foam applicator. I adhered the front panel onto a mat of Chocolate Chip card. I die cut the happy from the same card, and die cut a banner from Blushing Bride and stamped the word birthday from the Blossom Overture stamp set. After attaching everything to some white card I added a bit of Ice Stickles to the sentiment for that finishing touch.
I'm linking up with the following challenges:
