Last week, we had another fun filled day of coloring and cardmaking at The Queen’s Ink for their monthly Art du Jour. I had two cards available which were really simple to color and put together. Details are below. Mark your calendars now for the next Art du Jour on May 8th!

Last week, we celebrated my father’s 90th birthday. He doesn’t get around as well as he used to – I bought him one of those four-wheel walkers a few months ago – but he’s doing the best he can to remain independent for as long as possible.
Dad always loved fishing – surf fishing to be exact – and I have fond childhood memories of all the weird looking creatures that he’d reel into shore. So when I saw the Under the Sea stamp set by Dylusions, I knew that I’d found the sort of quirky sea life images that he’d appreciate. I wasn’t really sure what direction my coloring would go so I just started pulling out markers, primarily among the YGs, and kept adding colors and texture until I got something I liked. I paired it with a sentiment from Paper Smooches. Quick, simple and got me out the door in time to deliver his birthday cake!
