Paper Craft Crew #266- Do you love to color?

I have to confess I am late to the love of coloring trend. When I was young, I stayed with my grandparents all summer. It was awesome. My Aunt Sue was a first grade teacher and she loved to color. She was really an artist. She would buy me a awesome fancy color book and crayons or colored pencils. She really wanted me to sit and color with her. I didn't stay in the lines and my color choices, well, were less than desirable. Moving forward 50+ years, I have learned to enjoy coloring. My friend Cheryl loved to color, I learned from her how to relax and enjoy the practice. I'm still not great, but I do enjoy it a
lot more and I am better at staying inside the lines.
Have you looked at the Stampin' Blends yet? My project today was fun. I wanted to participate in the PCC#266 Card sketch challenge and show y'all some ideas using the Stampin' Blends. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I used the light and dark markers in Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight to color the feathers on the Just add Color DSP. I then fussy cut some feathers for my focal image, added the Copper Trim(I love) and some gold metallic thread.(It should have been copper, couldn't find it for nothing!) & the saying is from the Ribbon of Courage set. I really did have a good time coloring and playing with the shading and blending. I love the artist quality of the markers. I definitely need more practice! Hope you enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it. If you need any supplies, please shoot me an email or hop on over to my online store. Thanks for stopping in today. Have a wonderful blessed day and be a blessing to someone in need.
Love, stamping in Dixie,
