Embellish with Coloring pages

COLORING PAGES!!!
I went on the net to find images to use my Copic Markers on and I found Coloring Pages. There are TONS of them. The butterflies above are one that I found online. I use them to decorate the front of my cards.  I posted this on my Handmade Cards Blog but I wanted to post this info on this blog as well.  If you don't have a stamp image you can print out any coloring page.

You can resize each one if you have basic photo software. You can make them big or small.

Here is a list of websites that have free coloring pages (I'm adding new ones as I find them):

http://www.freeprintablecoloringpages.net/category/Illuminated_Numbers (if you need numbers for a birthday card (for example) then check this site. They also have a lot of categories on the left side of screen to see more)

http://www.artistshelpingchildren.org/coloringprintouts.html (on the right side, the pages are listed A-Z)

http://www.supercoloring.com/ (14,600 images, great website)

http://www.coloringbookfun.com/ (8,754 images, another great website)

http://www.my-coloring-pages.com/ (The categories are just under their banner at top of page, they are Alphabets, Animals, Bible, Disney, Fantasy, For boys, For girls, Holidays, Nature and Sesame St)

You have to click on the small box icon on the far left to get to the individual sites.
To see all the things they have to offer, including Fonts, Clipart Library, Backgrounds and more just go to http://www.wondersofdisney.disneyfansites.com/frontdoor.html
SAVE THEM:
To save the images, from these sites, to your computer just right click on them and choose "Save Image".  You could also PIN them to www.pinterest.com. I just started pinning the coloring pages so I have some saved in my board "Coloring Pages". I am at http://pinterest.com/hg1bbs/  95% of my pins are scrapbooking and cardmaking.

LOOKING FOR MARKERS?
Ebay is a great way to purchase them without breaking your bank. A comment was left on my Cards Blog saying that DickBlick.com also sells markers. I don't know to many details but you can try there too. One last place you can buy them from is Hobby Lobby. They have a 40% off coupon that you can get online to reduce the price a little. They are originally $6.29.

HAPPY COLORING!
