Gearing up for some coloring

Gearing up for some coloring

You know what’s a great way to relax and be creative? Coloring. There’s something very like meditation going on when you’re coloring. Although, some people find coloring to be stressful. All that staying inside the lines rules. My fifth grade teacher once told me I was coloring wrong because I wasn’t coloring all in the same direction. While that comment stuck in my head, it never really bothered me, since I knew she was wrong. How did I know she was wrong? From watching my parents taking their art classes.

Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

So what does coloring have to do with today’s card? That’s the technique I used to create the main image, of course.

These adorable Tim Holtz robots were colored with copic markers, and the dials on the two left hand ones were embossed with dimensional adhesive to give them a nice glossy, rounded look.

A stamped sentiment, and a couple screw-like brads, and the card is done. What do you think?

If you want to make something like this, you can try Amazon for some of the supplies. (affiliate links)
