Sitting down and coloring is one of the most relaxing things to do for me, and I know that's because it brings back past memories of being a child and being able to do nothing but break out the coloring books and crayons.
It's a wee bit harder to find the time to color as an adult but it's always a relaxing exercise when one can do so.
Altenew includes a thank you card with every order that is designed for you to color in so no stamping necessary, just pull out your coloring medium of choice!
I've used the Woodless Coloring Pencils with this image. This is the first time I've colored one of these cards in and, full disclosure, it has a very smooth finish which is my coloring is very light as I used a light hand to layer it on.
I love the pastel look a light hand and the texture of the card produces. You could create a darker intensity by starting with a base layer of very light Artist Marker shades in the areas and then layer your colored pencils over top.
Save all your cards from your Altenew orders and try out the other Altenew coloring mediums with them. Here's a link to all the great coloring products in the Altenew shop:
