Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Today is National Coloring Book Day and we're celebrating here on the blog! The STAMPlorations girls took out their favorite coloring mediums and started coloring a page from COLOR BLOOMS, our first coloring book for grownups -- specially created for the cardmaker, crafter, and mixed media artist in you!
We'd love for you to celebrate this event too so we've made the Color Blooms page sampler available for everyone to download, print, and color! And for a chance to win a copy of the Color Blooms coloring book, simply share a photo of the Color Blooms page sampler that you've colored and link it up at the end of this post. The linky is open until Sunday, August 7, so you have plenty of time to have some coloring fun!
Here are samples of how the STAMPlorations girls colored the pages in Color Blooms.
Tanja used Inktense pencils, Stabillo All pencil, and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to color her page.
She used Kuratake Gansai Tambi (left) and Twinkling H2O (right) to color the rest of the flowers on the same page.
Kim used Spectrum Noir markers to color the sunflower.
Then she used regular Crayola markers to color the zinnias.
Shirley used Distress inks as watercolors to color the page: top right DI direct on paper; bottom left, DI on clear gesso.
