Adult coloring is such a big trend right not, but did you know you can make your own adult coloring page or card with an outline image to color in after stamping like this Adult Coloring Flourishing Phrases Card?
Flourishing Phrases is a beautiful stamp set in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog with this flowering stem image and LOTS of phrases to use on all your projects. I stamped the full image on the Shimmery White cardstock for the front of the card and then stamped partial pieces of the flower stem randomly around the edge of the card I used Basic Black Archival Ink to stamp the images and then colored in with my Aqua Painter and various colors of ink. You could also use a Blender Pen for picking up the ink color.
I prefer the Shimmery White Cardstock when watercoloring because it is the next best thing to using real Watercolor Paper. You can use Whisper White cardstock, but you have to just color very lightly so that the paper doesn’t get too wet and pill up.
To make my adult coloring page into a card, I just layered it on Blushing Bride and then on the Pear Pizzazz card base, The ribbon is one of my all-time favorites, Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon. I also used my new Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut out the greeting which is in the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set.
If you would like the coordinating thinlits dies that go with the stamp set and would like to save 10%, order the Flourishing Phrases Bundle and get it all!
Adult coloring is all the rage these days and the coloring books are quite expensive. I find that I don’t really want to spend time on an entire page of intricate images, but I love stamping something and coloring in my own creation. It’s relaxing and therapeutic! Try your hand at some stamping and “adult coloring” with your design, like my Adult Coloring Flourishing Phrases Card and see if it is not stress-relieving and pleasing for you!
