I picked up these coloring cards by Spectrum noir at Michaels, they come with all the sparkle and when you color over them the sparkle shines through.  It is part of their colorista line.  I didn't realize it when I bought them that they already had Thanks written on them, so either I use them for that or I can add my own sentiment over it.  Just so happens I needed a few thank you's so I thought I would give them a try.

The first I tried with lighter colors, both cards use my Spectrum noir markers.

This next one I went a little darker and more reds because she likes that.

With my last Thank you my friend gifted me a tin holder with a chalkboard on the front so I can label it anything I want, I ended up putting my colored pencils in it, instead of having them in different containers, and she also gave me a set of very thing watercolor markers, these would be perfect for small images :)  I used them on her thank you card, stamped the flowers, added color directly to the image and then used my waterbrush to move the color around, I think it worked really nice.

The sentiment is a Reminisce sticker, there is no name on the stamp, sorry.
The markers are Stabilo watercolor and it was from the 15 piece marker set.
Nuvo - crystal clear drops in white Blizzard, they are a little hard to see

I do think my back is a little better, I can actually not have pain when I am laying down now :)
Hope all is well with you and your week is off to a great start.

Thanks so very much for taking the time to stop by and saying Hi,

Wow! Those sparkle images are amazing, fun, and pretty all rolled into one! Your coloring is beautiful. Love all three cards with their clean and simple designs. The coloring really does it all. Keep feeling better, Connie!

These are so pretty Connie. Love the coloring pages. The sparkle must be real nice in real life. I like the second better with the deeper colors, but both are lovely. The third is lovely. The water coloring looks nice and the nuvo drops are the perfect embellishments. Have a wonderful and pain free weekend!
