Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today I'll be showing how to get beautiful coloring effects using marker and pencil coloring.

I started by choosing one of the image from Exotic Blooms Marker Coloring Book. To stop marker bleed through don't forget to add the Color Chatcher Sheet under the page you are coloring. I firstly colored the images using Artist Markers. For the flower I used Dew Drops and Aqualicious Markers, Sunkissed and Autumn Blaze Markers were used for the flower center and Parrot, Olive and Moss Markers for the leaves and stems. Once these were colored I then used Woodless Pencils to add extra shading. I used Volcano Lake and Galactic Stream Pencils for the flowers, Autumn Blaze Pencil for the flower center and Moss Pencil for the leaves and stems.

Once the coloring was complete I cut from corner to corner using a craft knife and ruler, being careful not to cut through the image. Then I fussy cut around the part of the image that was over the cut lines. I added a piece of patterned paper from Essential Black & White Paper Pack to my card base before I added the fussy cut image panel into place using foam tape. The sentiment is from Sentiments Stripes Stamp Set.

The colors and textures for using the woodless pencils is spot on for making flowers pop in this presentation and Lydia did an incredible job. I have already ordered Altenew black and white card stock. I will have to post pictures here later. Thanks Lydia.
