Colouring book pages...

I spend the weekend up at Mangawhai and managed to sit outside Saturday morning and do some colouring in.... A new book I picked up for $2 at my local newsagent.  It was a 4"x4" book that had been with a magazine.  Once the magazine was passed it's use by date, they sell of the little gifts and it was such a bargain.

Here's the first finished page


And I did a second one that I turned into a card


I used watercolour pencils from Faber Castell,  Koh-i-nor and Derwent and blended with a Memento blender pen on both pages.

To finish my feathers card I used a Winnie & Walter die cut to cut two hello's - one in pale blue and one in dark blue, layering them together slightly off set.  The friend sentiment is from a Catherine Pooler set and I stamped in black and clear embossed.  

Colouring in is so relaxing.   I really enjoyed sitting out in the sun on Saturday until the rain came! 

Thanks for stopping by.
