Happy Friday! Hooray, the weekend is practically here, and I’ve gotta say that this week has flown by. I’ve been learning my way around the Paper Wishes Facebook page which I’ve recently taken on, and I can’t believe we have so many followers (over 16,000)—it’s kind of amazing. I’m excited to be able to interact with so many Paper Wishers, so stop by and give us a “Like!”
It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and so the past two nights (after the kids are in bed) I’ve been coloring in our new Christmas Ornaments for Colorists coloring book. It’s been so relaxing! It’s this great combination of being creative while mentally “checking out” to a certain degree! And of course, after I finished, it just had to go on a card! One Christmas card down, so many to go!
Colorist Christmas Card
- Winter’s Garden Double-Sided Scrapbooking Papers
- Winter’s Garden Ribbon Set
- Christmas Ornaments for Colorists™ book
- Spectrum Noir™ Markers
- Gold Lame Smooch™ Ink
- Silver Stickles™ Glitter Glue
- Glue Stick
- Craft Knife
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir™ markers, and added Gold Smooch™ ink and Silver Stickles™ glitter glue accents. The background papers are from Hot Off The Press’ Winter’s Garden paper pack, which is fun, bright and cheery! It also plays nicely into my predilection for lime green :-D. Colorist books give you two of each design, so I was able to cut out the holly berries and foam tape a second layer on top of the first. Not perfect, but it was fun!
Definitely try one of these coloring books if you haven’t already! Let yourself unwind by coloring, and who knows? Maybe a card will be born! Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope you make a little time to create something you love!
