This little cutie set is Bicycle Built For You by Lawn Fawn. It comes with coordinating dies that I don't have yet so I cut out all of the pieces by hand for this one. I used Memory Box cloud dies, Martha Stewart grass punch on designer paper for grassy hill, Lawn Fawn road die for path that I stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds by Stampin' Up! The Eiffel Tower is by Tim Holtz. I love combining various stamps and supplies on my cards to make them unique.

It's been fun to watch the coloring book craze that has been going on for a while. It really is great therapy, bringing back the little kid in all of us! Some of these books can be fairly pricey so be on the lookout for them at half price book stores and your local thrift shops. I found these for a couple of bucks each. Not sure why the previous owners bailed on the coloring hobby but happy they donated to recycle and bring someone else joy!
For lots of coloring inspiration check out the Pinterest boards. There are so many amazing artists out there sharing their knowledge to inspire and make the world a more beautiful place. The Johanna Basford colored pages on some of these boards are works of art. (Book shown above with protective cover removed. It's a really nice quality journal style book). So pick one up and start practicing! Even if it is 15 minutes or a half an hour a day.

I used the shaving cream technique to create the water background on white card stock with Tim Holtz Stream and Moss inkers. The koi is a two step stamping set with coordinating dies that finished off the rest of the card. Stitched Frames rectangle die is by Lawn Fawn.
