Seize The Birthday - ‘Coloring’ - Challenge Card

I’m in ♥ with my TomBow markers, my Christmas present from my Mr.  They really are impressive.  This challenge seems so timely as I find myself wanting to colour, colour, COLOUR!!!

Seize the Birthday - Jan 16th - ‘COLORING’

Actually, one could do “Coloring” or, “Birthday” - I did a combo:

Seize The Birthday - Colurr 1_Barb Derksen


Arches 140lb Watercolour Paper

Designer Paper (scrap)

Stamps - Hero Arts, Fiskars Stampin’ Up 

TomBow Markers - N00 933 177 757 856 985 685 373 N57476 933

Guitar Strings


I used my Mr’s discarded guitar strings for the stems!


and chose a ‘near-shade’ to add some dimension to the little pocket. 

Thanks for visiting!
