We spent the weekend at our son’s house recently, and while the guys painted in the kitchen I colored at the kitchen table. I packed up all my Copic markers in my sturdy Copic carrying case, along with a few digital images I’d printed some while back. I colored three of them – more coloring than I ever manage to accomplish in one sitting at home. Gosh, if that’s how it’s going to be I think we should go there more often! Of the three images I colored, this is the only one I’ve turned into a card so far.
These anemones are one of the free samples I saved from Dover Publications. Sign up for their weekly sampler to receive emails which will lead you to a variety of free images to color. I printed on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and, as mentioned, used Copic markers for coloring. The designer paper is retired BasicGrey Scarlet’s Letter. It’s a bold switch from sweet spring pastels, but these sun loving, spring blooming red anemones were a fond favorite in my garden for many years. They’ve died out now and been replaced with a delicate pink and white variety that bloom in the late summer shade.
Happy stamping! I’ll see you again soon!
