Coloring Page

Coloring books for adults are all the rage.  Did you know we just had a National Coloring Book day?  I was able to get a few freebie coloring pages from blogs and FB pages.

The one from STAMPlorations is HERE.  If you color it, post it, and link it to their blog, you are in the running for their first Coloring Book.  Link ups are due in a couple of days.  We aren't to make anything with this page just yet.  There will be a blog hop later for that purpose.

I have an injet printer.  I use Epson Presentation paper matte with Copic markers.  The Copics do not run the ink when I print on this paper.

I used a bunch of different Copic colors so I won't list them all.  I added Wink of Stella GLDark Pink to the pink flowers.   I tried shadowing the flowers so they'd pop off the page.  I used a few colors to make the background look like old yellowed paper.

I loved the STAMPlorations blog post featuring all the DT and the different coloring products they used.

My entry is #4 HERE

Love how you "aged" the page, Helene! And it's great info about the paper and printer -- I've always had a problem coloring images printed on an inkjet because the printer ink would get ruined when I try to color with alcohol markers. So great to see you color with us. Hugs!

Oh my, this is gorgeous! I am not at all into coloring books , but you make me reconsider.... as for your comment on my blog about the stencil I used - I did not use one. It is a stamp. I have a link to it in my post. Thanks about your wonderful comment. It made my day!
