How to Color Your Hair When Quarantined Card

Hello, all you poor, bedraggled peeps!

I was ecstatic when my hairdresser finally was allowed back to work! They have a huge retail space that’s broken down into individual salons and everyone has to stay in their cars until called. She is very fastidious, so with both of us wearing masks, we felt safe. I don’t color my hair, but thought these cute free digi stamps by Impression Obsession stamps (HERE) would give her a chuckle – So I colored up one for her and one to give to a friend. She like them both!

I started out easy, getting back into coloring with Marvy Uchida LePlume II markers, and Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils with Pebbles Inc. chalks.


It’s always restful to take some time to sit and color — no matter what your age!!

While the markers are brighter, I had a hard time remembering how to blend and the paper kept wanting to ball up on me, so I switched to the colored pencils…

Hope this brought a smile to your face!

Hang in there and be very careful out there!!
