Hello everyone! Today I’m bringing you some special coloring projects. I love coloring. It’s so relaxing and calming, but it can get a little monotonous so I like to mix it up now and then. For example I LOVE these Colorista Dark 6″x6″ Exquisite Florals & Under the Sea Pencil Pads! They are clear embossed/black cardstock coloring pages that look amazing with Spectrum Noir Metallic Pencils.
The images are fun to color and the Metallic Pencils are very opaque and really stand out on the black background. I think they would be fun to use on cards, just crop them down a bit and add a Dazzles™ sticker greeting.
When you need a break from coloring on paper, why not try Galvanized Metal? This is not the same old metal from the garage or flower shed, now it comes in shapes and you can color it and customize it to match your home decor. The 3-D Butterfly has wings that can be manipulated so that it will look like it’s in flight.
There is also a little hanger on the back. How cute to place 3 on a wall around photos or in a child’s bedroom above the bed!
Debbie used Turquose Inka Gold, Green/Yellow Inka Gold, Emerald Inka Gold, Inka Brown Gold and Violet Inka Gold to create a Rainbow effect on her butterfly. She used her fingertips (remove a small amount from jars and place on a craft sheet to prevent jar contents from being contaminated and molding) and a small paintbrush to apply the Inka Gold and then used a soft cloth to buff between applications. She also used a little water on the brush to blend the colors. As a final step she misted the butterfly with Gold Dust Glitter Spray for some added sparkle!
