Miss You card by Danielle Flanders

Coloring pages for adults seem to be all the rage right now… I mean, really, who doesn’t like to color? It’s so relaxing and reminds me of my childhood love of art! I’ve recently discovered that now cardmakers get to color, too! Check out these neat card-sized paper packs with different designs you can color in with Copic Markers, colored pencils, etc. So much fun! This one is called Fancy Pants Sentiments Coloring Pages by Papertrey Ink, but they have others including a feather-themed pack, a butterfly-themed pack, and more. And when you are done coloring, you get to send your finished artwork to someone special in the form of a card!

I’ve chosen this particular sentiment, because I had these tulips all stamped and ready to go, and this “Miss You” coloring sheet has a nice open space in the lower left corner where I can add my tulips. So this one, it is! I’ve also grabbed some Copics from my collection that I thought would go well with the colors in the tulips.


I learned that I’m not the best colorer in the world, but I had a lot of fun with it, and it sort of turned out with an “artistic” look to it. I used the R39 Copic Marker to color in the “Miss You,” then shaded around the words with R20. The swirls were colored in with BG10, then shaded with two greens on the ends, YG11 and YG63.

    Oh this is such a brilliant idea! I’ve already got a couple of colouring books and was already going to cut up some pages to do just that, make cards out of them! Yours is lovely plus, there’s nothing wrong with your colouring!

    this is a great way to combine all the wonderful designs in the many available coloring books. You definitely made it your own and your coloring looks perfect to me – as usual.

    And how about stamping up a coloring book for someone else to color? What a great gift idea, kids, adults, elderly!
