Adult Coloring ~ Sunshine Birdies 1 ~ March SOTM ~ CatScrapbooking.comI random stamped the birds, branch, and butterflies on my cardstock with Momento ink.  I decided to add in some flowers which came from Woodland Romance D1683.   I then took out my ShinHan markers and had a great time coloring.

Adult Coloring ~ Sunshine Birdies ~ March SOTM ~ CatScrapbooking.comI have to be honest in saying once I finished coloring I was not really sure what I planned to do :-)…. I just was so exited to color.  Well after thinking on it for a while this is what I decided to do.

Sunshine Birdies ~ You Makke Me Happy ~ Adult coloring ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo I decided t0 trim my colored cardstock and then cut into strips.  I then cut a Flower #m3faee from Artbooking.  I then masked off the You Make Me Happy and inked in Momento, Lagoon and Pomegranate.
