I’m excited to tell you about a wonderful coloring class and a gorgeous digital stamp set you can get for FREE! Yep, $0.00!! AND, if you’re reading this before August 16, 2018, you still have a few days to enter the coloring contest and win one of up to $200 in prizes! You can find the details on these two sites by the two ladies who are so generously sponsoring this little bit of KINDNESS:
- Kindness is the Way Digital Stamp Set (by the artistic and kindly Marcella Hawley – Thanks Marcella!!) I chose to use the one without the sentiment, but there are some with it in the set, too.
- Kit & Clowder’s Free Floral Coloring Class for markers and pencils by the talented and generous Alice Keegan – Thanks Alyce!
I took the class and learned a lot. I tried coloring using two different sets of pencils…(and learned it’s a lot slower going than with markers, but maybe that’s because I’m more used to using markers. The first pencils I used: Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils (which I just colored, but was too chicken to use water to blend. maybe next time!):
The color combo for those gerbera daisies inspired by one of my orchids that’s currently in bloom:
I then had a go with a new set of Faber-Castell Polychromos that I received as a gift. Yes, you can see lines in the border shading… I was coloring on leather covered lap desk… come to find out that made the surface too soft and it was embossing, too! Oh well, it has a distressed, shabby-chic look!
And, since this week is the first Creative Confetti Challenge at PowerPoppy – You’re a Gem! using birthstone colors, I did the background in light emerald and added this sentiment in emerald as the leaves go so well with the flowers:
