I recently drew and printed out some colouring in postcards to send to friends and family across the globe as a little happy mail with bonus colouring if they fancied it.
What I hadn’t done, is colour one in myself. I drew them and traced them and made sure all the lines were where they should be, but I never added any colour. Until now that is.
I decided that I would explore a few different ways to colour the same sheet.
What do you like to colour with? I know pencil crayons are a top choice, but I don’t like to colour with them as much as I like to draw with them.
For the top two cards I used brush pens for the colour and I did some extra drawing and patterns on the yellow card with a Micron pen.
Watercolour paints is maybe not the first choice for a coloring page, but these are post cards and printed on card-stock, so they put up with a layer of water colour just fine. Maybe I should print some cards on watercolour and really go to town with the paints and water!
