Little Princess

My great niece turned 3 earlier this month and she is a little red head so I tried to color the princess's hair with some red touches.  It was so neat that I picked this theme for her card this year because when viewing pictures of her party I see they had a princess cake for her :)

Hero Arts -- Magical Castle stamp set, colored w/ markers
Carta Bella -- Alphabet Junction paper
Poppystamps -- Stitched Landscapes
Wink of Luna -- Gold for the stars

I also was going through my pictures and realized I had forgotten a card for a close friend.  I had bought the Christmas ornament  for Colorist and this is the only card I had managed to do using that pack, I am hoping this year to color the whole pack so when next Christmas rolls around all I have to do is make up the cards.  I am sharing it this year to just share a few points just in case you are thinking of buying the pack, I had to cut this down to fit on an A2 card, it was a bit too big, so the whole border has been cut off.  I colored with my Spectrum noir markers and even though I didn't use much ink, the paper kind of bunched up while coloring, but once it was done it all laid flat again, it is pretty thick paper so I was surprised by it but happy with the results once the ink dried. HERE is a link to the product in case you haven't heard of them, they have other books I might get also.

Hot off the press -- Christmas Ornaments for Colorist colored w/markers

Hope you have had a nice relaxing weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Perfect card for your great niece princess! Adult coloring is getting quite popular these days. Not a bad idea to have card sized pieces, even if you did have to cut off the border. Turned out gorgeous, Connie!
