Thanks

I bought a book of postcard size adult coloring images awhile ago and have never colored any of them, I was in need of some thank you's so I decided to color one of them up for a thank you card.  If I remember correctly I think I used 23 markers on this one. All I did was pick my sentiment, layered it on cardstock and added it to my colored postcard, and I was done.  I found this book at Barnes and Nobles. There was a black border around it but I cut that off so I could do a light green matting behind it and then added it to a black cardstock for my base.  I now wish I would have put some gems in the center of at least a couple of flowers.


Secret Garden -- 20 postcards, Colored w/markers
David Tuttera -- Celebrate sentiments

I am busy working on a project that I will be sharing in a few days, crossing my fingers it is going to turn out like I am envisioning.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

That is a fun way to use your coloring pages. I didn't know about this one with the postcards, that is a fun idea.

I love this idea and need to try it though your colouring in is expertly done!

Connie, what a wonderful idea! I was drooling over those coloring books at my B&N last week. I really liked the Alice in Wonderland one!

A colouring book filled with postcards sounds like such a good idea. I don't think you need to cross your fingers for luck with your new project, Connie; everything you and those clever fingers of yours do always turn out lovely and unique.
