Colouring Page Card

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome two new followers - Jenn Paci and Stellar Crafts by Pam - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing a thank-you card I made from a colouring page. This is a free Color Blooms Page Sampler from STAMPlorations (thank you, Shery!).  There is a blog hop and linky when you use this colouring page - this freebie is still available so head over and check it out! There are some awesome prizes too!

I coloured the page with Bic Mark-its (yes, these are children's markers, but they are fun for colouring!).  I sponged Old Paper Distress Ink on the text portion. The sentiment was stamped on a vellum scrap and I added a die-cut hummingbird, one cut in gold and one in black, layered together to create a shadow effect. Gold glitter was added to the centers of three flowers to finish off the card.

Here are the other products used:
  • Clear stamp:  Newton's Nook Simply Sentimental 
  • Die: Spellbinders Botanical Flutters
  • Other:  Elizabeth Crafts Solar Gold Microfine Glitter

brenda said...

Absolutely stunning Kitty, love anything with flowers and these just pop off the page. Little secret, unfortunately both of those cards you saw today are weeks old, but on a positive note hubby drove me to a craft show today and I indulged in rather a lot of new stamps in the hope it won't be too long before I can in them up.
