Note Card Party “Color Pages”

Remember getting cards when you were younger that you could color?

I took these to PhotoScape and added the colored pencil effects so that we can have some cards to color in our ‘spare time’ this week!

I ramped up the color a bit but we can still get our crayons or color pencils out and finish them up.

And if you are much younger, you can use markers!

Diane, I love these images! Isn't it amazing how we have the ability to "tweak" our photographs with so many different effects? Real life made into a cartoon...lol! Have a wonderful week!

Kathy said...

I never saw cards to color. Am I too old or too young? LOL. This is a great idea. I would probably use markers. I like coloring with them.

Awesome idea Diane! I'll pick coloured pencils because they look like watercolours. :) Beautiful notecards.

Diane,
Oh Yes, I remember the cards to color. I used to do so many craft projects when I was little. Just give me some colored construction paper, and I would go to town! I love this first card on here with the crown.

Have a great week, friend.

love,
~Sheri

Vee said...

You may be the first to create note cards with the younger and young at heart set in mind, Diane. I still love to color, if only the crayons were as wonderful as they once were. That formula changed. So I'm going with colored pencils. Thanks!
