Virginia's View Challenge #19

This is a re-post of Virgina's View Challenge 

 Happy October!
I am super excited to bring you another month of new inspiration. This theme is going to be so popular because you all do it, you all love all crave for it (no, it's not coffee..or sex...)!
you all COLOR it!
We live, breathe and SEE colors every day and we thrive on colors! 
 In the last few months, adult coloring books have exploded in popularity across North America. Currently, four of the top 20 bestselling books on Amazon are coloring books, some having sold more than a million copies. 

Here is the list of the coloring books/supplies that are available over Simon Says Stamp. 
This article is a great guide to the most popular adult coloring books.

This August, my family and I visited London (UK) and Norway and I couldn't help but notice the presence of an abundant choice of coloring books. I snapped these photos myself! Notice the Norwegian coloring books (top left)? And even the Norwegian toilet paper come in colors! In London, coloring books have great presence in the Tate Modern Museum and Selfridges!
 Here is my take on this challenge.
we appreciate you
I inked up the Altenew Wild Hibiscus in Khaki and applied Zig markers with water. I stamped the sentiment in Brilliance Gold. I finished the card with the gold twines and sequins. Done!  

I hope that you will join the fun and get those copic markers, watercolors, color pencils...out to play. I can't wait to  see what you create! For all the details of this challenge, please visit here
Thanks for stopping by!
