PCC #115 & FWF Tuesday

Hi Everyone!


I am really happy with this week's PaperCrafters Corner inspiration challenge

It's about ADULT COLORING BOOKS! SO, there's a twist. There are extra requirements.
At least one of these must be used....

*coloring *crayons *a coloring book page *a coloring book character *Crayola colors *a story about coloring as a kid *pictures of you coloring *melted wax

I don't know about you but I love this idea of adult coloring books. I found one at TJ Maxx called Inspired Coloring Patterns that I just HAD to buy. I've colored a few pages already. Once I started coloring, the pages started falling out. No problem. I was going to make cards with some of the pages anyway. Like these guy cards....

I colored this page a while poor lighting. I recolored it good lighting. Besides, I wanted it darker. I used Faber-Castell crayons. I had one problem when making these cards...ADHESIVE DOESN"T STICK TO WAX! Time to get creative with brads and staples. I haven't used them in ages. Good thing they're masculine. :)
All the sentiments are Unity and the ink is Colorbox.

Unity Stamps is moving their Friends With Flair to Tuesday!! It's also the day they will start their SALES. Check out the blog for all the details.
