Color A Medallion to Match Your Paper

Coloring is so crazy now. I have a couple of friends that use Coloring as a means to destress from a day at work. This is definitely healthier than drinking!!

Close To My Heart has so many of their very precise and wonderful clear acrylic stamp sets that you can color to match whatever papers you are using. Choose your coloring tool of choice, water colors, colored pencils, or markers. Today I chose the watercolor pencils (I love these!!!) from Close To My Heart to color the beautiful stamp set 

Ornate Blossums D1687

How gorgeous is this set?! Note the green line around 6 of the images. There is a Ornate Blossum Thin Cuts available Z3227.

Here is the card I created this morning using the sketch challenge from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 168.

To purchase any of these items, click on the links and you will go to my website to shop.

The Water Color Pencils 3505 can be used to just color or you can use a blending pen and turn them to watercolors.

Here is the Blending Pen 3174This pen merges colors for professional-looking blending. The blending pen can be used to lighten colors or create a watercolor effect. Water-based and alcohol free; works perfectly with Close To My Heart Exclusive Inks™ markers and stamp pads. Acid free.

The paper is Calypso Paper Packet X7210B from the Seasonal Expressions May- August 2016 catalog.

This is so summery and cute with the very much on trend Flamingos!!

To get all the complements and embellishments in one package the 
Here are the Flamingos!

I appreciate the inspiration from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to create my card!!
