Cards Made with Coloring Books
From the Designer: "This is a set of cards that I made using coloring books and color pencils. I made these using a combination of Premium Colored Pencils and Watercolor Pencils both from Leisure Arts. They work perfectly with the watercolor paper or regular cardstock. I separated the illustrations from the coloring books after finished the painting process. I resized it to use like a layer over my card base or fussy cut the image to use simply the illustration. To create the base of these cards, I used cardstock and scraps of decorated papers and Stickers. Create these is very fun because you colored in your time and assembling the card only take a few minutes."
