Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here.

Today, I'll be showing that you can add beautiful hot foiling effects to images from the Whimsical Flower Bunch Coloring Sheets.

This lovely coloring book is filled with 12 awesome whimsical designs you can enjoy coloring for hours. Think: flowers, foliage, and birds with lots of empty spaces to fill in with stunning colors! Some of the images feature accompanying inspirational words that will definitely brighten your day.

I started by taking one of the black images from the set and coloring it using Artist Alcohol Markers. I used a whole bunch of colors for this. Bamboo, Olive, and Moss Markers were used for some of the leaves, and Firefly, Just Green, and Hunter Green Markers were used for others.

For the large red flower, I used Pink Pearl, Heart Beat, and Vineyard Berry Markers, the pointy flowers were colored with Iceberg, Eastern Sky, and Ultramarine Markers, and Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon Markers were used for the smaller flowers.

I then used a mix of Citrus Burst, Fresh Lemon, Maple Yellow, Sunkissed, Autumn Blaze, and Firebrick Markers for the flower centers. Once the images were colored, I added more detail using Woodless Coloring Pencils.

I used a hot foil that works with a laminator. TIP! The ink that is used when printing the coloring sheets melts when used in the laminator, and the hot foil sticks to it – so you need to remember to use a toner-activated hot foil for this; the hot foil that is used with hot foil plates will not work for this technique.

The cards were finished off with a little patterned paper from Essential Black & White 6×6 Paper Pack and a sentiment from Crafty Life Stamp Set.

I hope you try some hot foiling fun on your next handmade card project! Thanks so much for stopping by!
