Celebrate National Coloring Book Day with STAMPlorations

Happy National Coloring Book Day.

Remember what is like to sit and color in a coloring book? 
More people are rediscovering the joy and relaxation of
 coloring in grown-up coloring books. 
STAMPlorations has released a fabulous coloring book 
designed with card makers, crafters and mixed media artists in mind.

Shery is so sweet she is sharing a sample page that you can download
and color and link your finished page for a chance to win 
 a copy of COLOR BLOOMS

You need to check that out HERE FOR SAMPLE PAGE

I thought I would share with you what I did to celebrate coloring.
 I downloaded the sample page
and printed it on white cardstock. It measures 5 x 7.
 I know it is trendy to buy markers that cost about $5 a marker, but
I like crayola markers because you can get a whole set of markers for the price that one of the expensive markers costs. All three of my cards were colored using only crayola markers.

My first card used the whole sample page. I added glitter to the centers of the flowers. I added pearls and ribbon.. I matted it with 2 different shades of pink and then black cardstock.
 My next two cards were a second page that I colored. I cut the page in half and then cut each half into thirds. This card I matted with black and purple cardstock.
 This card I matted with black white pink  and then black again. I added ribbons and pearls.
