Coloring pages for Cards are the best idea since sliced bread. Okay, maybe I am being a little dramatic. But I really enjoyed making these greeting cards from these sheets with pre-printed images on them. I used a watercolor pencil with a blender pen technique. The cards made from coloring pages are a part of a blog hop for Adornit. I am the final stop on the blog hop. To start the hop you should go to Adornit to obtain the first clue. Once you have collected the clues you can enter yourself in the giveaway.
Your clue from me is: the letter “N”. If you have visited all the blogs and have all the clues- email your clues to firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered to win the prize.
To make the cards from the coloring pages you will need:
- Adornit – Art Play Paintables and Adornit Printed Paper Pack
- Koh-I-Nor watercolor pencils in your favorite colors
- Spectrum Noir blender pen or your favorite blender pen
- Adtech Glue Dot Runner
- Scissors and/or paper trimmer
- Colored bakers twine and buttons
Instructions for coloring pages:
- Start with blank Art Page Paintables – pick your favorite and start coloring.
- I start by outlining the images and using a blender pen to pull the color towards the center.
- After you have colored your favorites. You will need to cut out the image and add adhesive.
- Cut the card stock to your desired size. I like layering the papers to create more dimension.
When making cards, I usually make a bunch of card panels at one time. Then assemble them at another time.
