Simple One with Coloring

Here is a simple card that I created tonight. I used my Sharpies again. I am finding coloring to be very therapeutic. Does anyone else feel the same? I bet if I am able to purchase Copic, I will be even MORE relaxed (wink wink).

I have a set of 36 Sharpies that I purchased from Target a while ago. To be honest I bought them for the boys. Then I read on SCS that you could use Sharpies like Copics, so I stole them. I know bad mommy. The problems with these markers is that they are BRIGHT. I need some pastel colors. I do own 2 prismacolor Markers -- Cream and Eggshell. I use these two markers for the flesh on my little people.

I love this card -- bet you never heard me say that. I like the simplicity of it, I think it will be great for a little boy. I absolutely love my grass. I don't know whether you can see it very well in the picture, but it looks REAL in real life.

The stamp is from High Hopes Stamps, it is called Froggy Gift, and the Designer Paper is from K-OLOGY, it is called Addison Paper (from Michael's)

I colored this boy's hair brown, I wonder if Brandon will leave me a message -- this one does not look like him. LOL

Stamps: Froggy Gift, Circle of Friendship Paper: Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Whisper White, Addison Paper Inks: Timber Brown (Staz on), Not Quite Navy Extras: Sharpie Markers, 1/2", 1", & 1-1/8" circle punches, Cocoa grosgrain ribbon.

Hey Corie, This is such a cute card.

I definitely agree about colouring being relaxing...and probably twice as good with COPICS...AT LEAST ;-).

This is so beautiful. I love the sharpie effect, although I must admit, I've never thought of using them on my cards. Very good idea. I love the vibrant look and the choice of colors used for this card. Great "Boy" card!

I love your coloring! You give him so much dimension. And you have an eye for color.

I find coloring therapeutic too. I just don't do it often :( Perhaps I should peruse my stamps for good images to color...and go to Mike's and buy Sharpies ;)

Great coloring. Try Bic Mark-It pens, they do have pastels in their set and work great I bought them in Walmart and Staples. They have a nice nib too.
