Hello Coloring fans!! Here to share a card I colored using Stencils and Stamps from Altenew for the Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway.
I try to have something to color while on the phone with my Dad. After nearly 3 years, I miss the daily chats with Mom before she moved on to the Otherside., and coloring is good therapy for the journey of grief. Getting lost in the craft of coloring is easy with all the different choices of media found in the Coloring Collection.
To start this card I took the Greenwood Flowers Stencil Set and inked a couple of flowers and leaves in the center of an A2 card front. Then I hand drew a few "planks" of wood with the Fineliner pens, and quickly stamped a few feathery leaves behind all that. Then I set to coloring with Alcohol Markers and detailing with WHITE Gel Pen.
I love how coloring with stenciks alows me to create one-of a kind projects.
Enjoy the rest of the hop.
Your next stop is to my friend Colleen Balija :)

The colors really pop!
Amazing coloring through a stencil! Wow!
Wow the colors are amazing on the card. So pretty.
Great ideas for different effects
Love the colors on this! Color therapy is good! I recently had hip replacement surgery and my husband died at the same time. I found that coloring in my Altenew Water Color Book and drawing and coloring in sketchbooks with colored pencils and watercolor pencils helped to fill my day in a positive way!
YIKES....this is gorgeous!
Always beautiful when you color!
Absolutely beautiful design and coloring on your card Laura! Love, love those colors! Great idea using a stencil along with your markers! I love your hand drawn wood planks! That really adds your own personal touch to this gorgeous art! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent and inspiration!
I agree with you -- coloring is great therapy. I'm going through some stressful times currently as my daughter-in-law was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. When I'm not watching her two small children I try to spend as much time as possible in my craft room -- it soothes me and I feel so much better.
AMAZING! I love the colors and details!
Beautiful card!!! These colors are Awesome!!
Wow!! This is simply stunning.
Such a beautiful card, Laura Jane! Coloring is, indeed, good therapy and helps de-stress me in difficult times.
Beautiful card! I do like stamping cards, but find that I get the most joy out of coloring the flowers myself be it colored pencils, Artist Markers or trying to water color. You get lost in the process. It has helped me get through the last 5 stressful years.
Beautiful coloring. Love the card. Thanks for sharing.
Just gorgeous Laura Jane. Lovely colours. I agree that colouring is very theraputic. You can get lost and forget about the other things on our mind. Thanks so much for the great inspiration. Take care! :)
This is so inventive! I love the hand-drawn planks too!

Your card is amazing! I have never seen such beautiful flowers using stencils (I must have missed that blog hop!) The set is sold out but it is definitely on my wish list.
I love the planks you drew and your highlights. A perfect card!

Beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration, I agree with you, coloring is great therapy, the problem comes when we become addicted and hands start to cramp 😉 gotta love it anyway!
Nice color share. Great combination and addition of the plants for the design.
Lovely coloring with a great combination of colors.

Beautiful card and I especially love the colors used. Thanks for sharing your art!
Very pretty. I love to color. It puts me into a meditative state. Probably why I have more colored flowers than cards.
