It's a STAMPlorations REVEAL - The Color Blooms Coloring Book for Card Makers and Scrapbookers

Happy Day everyone... And WELCOME To the STAMPlorations Blog Hop and Linky Party for the Color Blooms: The Coloring Book For Cardmakers, Krafters and Mixed Media Artists!!!
This book is different from other coloring books because it was designed so that the completed coloring pages can be turned into cards or scrapbook layouts or any number of creative projects.

Because if you are like me, you pour your artistic soul into creating an amazing page, and then what?  Most of us just turn the page, leaving it in the book hidden from view. Well let me show you what I did with my finished page, I created these four amazing items!
  






Now about my processI selected a page that had four similar panels...

and used my Copic markers, choosing four light-to-dark colors in the yellow to orange family group.  I randomly added strokes of color to the petals trying not to over think the process or worry about perfection because, after all, it IS the background.  I chose a complimentary color for the background and then added a bit of shadow around the flowers to make them pop off the page...

When I was finished coloring I cut out each piece and ran them through my Xyron Creative Station 5" Sticker Maker 

and mounted them on card stock to  create these four backgrounds - all from just one page!
And as I was sticking them down I realized that these backgrounds paired perfectly with my new STAMPlorations The Birds and The Blooms stamp so I stamped a few images and used my brand new Prismacolor Scholar pencil crayons to color them in.  The soft leads and vibrant pigments in these pencils layer and blend colors so beautifully that I liked them even better than my Copic markers.


So come check out the blog hop and linky party we are having over at STAMPlorations HERE where you can check out what some of the other design team created with their pages and where you can access a free,  down-loadable coloring page for you to color and create with and link up for more chances at prizes!!
