Seize The Birthday - Coloring!

Hi!  This is my first challenge as a Design Team member with Seize The Birthday!  We have a Toppings option of Coloring.  I'm so excited to be joining this wonderful team of ladies.  Click on the link above to meet the other DT members and read all the details of our challenges!

Let's get started!

For this challenge, it's time to get out your colored pencils, markers, or water colors and have fun!
It's up to you whether to add the "topping", so it's ok if you're not into coloring.  Just create a birthday card to play along with us!

I pulled out my Prismaclor Pencils and colored this flower field stamp from Stampendous.  It's been a while since I've colored and blended.  I'm thinking I need a little more practice, but I sure had fun with it!  After I finished coloring, I added a few swipes of Wink of Stella to a few of the flower petals.  I love the subtle glimmer that it adds.

I hope you'll join in with us for this challenge.  Here's a link to the January 16th Coloring Challenge!

  7. Hi Suzie,

    You will be a welcome and talented edition to the DT I am sure.

    Your card makes me think of Renunculous (I KNOW that is not the right spelling) but they are top on my list of pretty flowers with all the petals!

    Your coloring is simply lovely.


  8. I was thrilled when I saw your card....amazing job! I also like that you use Prisma colored pencils...I thought I was like the only one that used them! Practice coloring...NO..looks amazing!

  9. Hi Susie, glad to have you on the STB design team with us. Your card is so pretty. Great coloring on the flowers. This is a great color combo.
