Hello and welcome! Today's post is all about coloring the beautiful Thankful Mandala stamp set by Birch Press Design. If you love to color, then these cards will be perfect for you to try. And, well, if you don't love to color so much (Hi, Karla!) then you can simply admire the beauty of someone else's coloring!
I will be the first to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with coloring. There are times when I find it peaceful and soothing, yet there are also days when I find it can be simply dreadful! So, listen to how YOU feel. If you feel like coloring today, then go for it! If you'd rather sit back and eat a hot fudge sundae, you won't find me judging you! : )
For this yellow mandala I used Copic marker numbers V17, R27, Y02 and YR68.
For the green mandala I used Copic markers numbers YG06, G21, G05 and BG13.
For the purple mandala I used Copic markers number RV19, RV55, RV66, V9 and BV02.
For the blue mandala I used Copic marker numbers B02, B24, B52 and B12
Each of these cards begins the same way. I stamp the large Thankful Mandala on a 5 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock in Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I selected 3-4 colors of Copic markers in complimentary hues and color away. There is no rhyme or reason to my madness! In all honesty, each mandala took me about half an hour to color and then I adhered various colored rhinestones for added sparkle.
Here is the Thankful Mandala stamp set from Birch Press Design that I used to create these cards:
