Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Adult Colouring Books

Hi Everybody,

Travelling down to Peterborough on Friday to do the "LIVE" shows on Hochanda I decided to pass the time by colouring in some items from and adult colouring book that I have.

I took some Alcohol markers along with me and got busy colouring these two sets. Then once I was home I very quickly made them up into cards

This one clearly shows some Dahlias and I partially die cut them from the book.

The other flowers are added with foam to give more depth to the card and the big yellow ribbon is from Card Making Magic Decorative Collection

This one was some little flowers that I coloured pink and added white spots to the petals with a gel pen

The Happy Birthday sentiment is cut from Glitter card and I have wrapped the card in ribbon and lace

One way to pass a train journey and productive at the same time

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. Hello Christina,
    Time well spent and 2 very pretty cards to show for it. Colouring saved my sanity when I fractured my hip and pelvic bone nearly 2 years ago. One friend sent me stamped images to colour, and another sent me a colouring book. Needless to say they were also crafters.
    love Maureen xx
