  1. I love participating in the 30 day coloring challenge. I get to do what I love to do and I catch up on my card making😊👍🏻.Therese your card is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  2. What an awesome card. I can’t wait to try using some patterned paper. Thank you so much for an opportunity to win. Let me just say I love watch your videos. Right now I seem to reach for my Copic markers. I am trying to branch out to other mediums.

  3. Gorgeous coloring and arrangement, Therese! I love the idea of coloring on patterned paper, but forget to do it. I’m hoping to have time today with my Inktense pencils (purchased via your inspiration)!

  4. Oh Therese!! what a gorgeous card!!! I’ve never, ever seen this technique of stamping and coloring on pattern paper but, after seeing your video, I’m totally ready to try it.
    My most favorite medium to color my cards is Water Colors but I’ve also love my Prismacolor pencils to color, I do use Gamsol to blend the colors, I’ve not done it with just the pencils.
    Your fabulous video just gave me the most awesome idea for making my reminder card for The Flower Challenge #6, which is “Anything Goes”.
    Thank you for the chance to win.
    Big Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.

  5. I love the blue on the wood grain! I am going to try this one…
    I always look forward to your videos.

  6. Such a gorgeous card, Therese! I love how the woodgrain background peeks through the roses, and your coloring is just beautiful! My favorite coloring medium is Copic markers, but I love my Prismacolor pencils, too! Thanks so much for another great video, and for a chance to win 🙂

  7. Therese, your card is absolutely gorgeous! I wondered what “wood stamp” image you used until I read that you actually coloured right onto DP – it turned out amazing! I don’t colour much, as I find it time consuming and sometimes not to my satisfaction, but when I do I prefer to use my Prismacolor Pencils & gamsol.

  8. Beautiful card! My favorite medium is alcohol markers. I have some copics and all the Spectrum Noir. I love blending, though I am not very good at it. I do like what you do with pencils and will have to try that.

  9. WOW! Super technique and the result is just breathtaking ! What a clever woman you are ! My favorite colouring medium depends on the periods, I can say that lately it was watercolour and the colour pencils. Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  10. GORGEOUS!!
    favorite color medium..Inktense pencils…
    but almost any water color medium will do too…

  11. I’m back and forth right now with my zig w/c markers and prismacolor pencils

  12. I love the idea of coloring directly on design paper, I never would have tried that until I watched your video. I just bought the 115 count Prismacolor pencils and they are now my new favorite medium!!

  13. I thoroughly enjoy your videos. You are extremely talented. I am liking my Prismacolor pencils at the moment!

  14. So lovely! I love that you can see the wood grain through the color! My favorite coloring medium is Copic markers. Don’t know why I tend to reach for them first, but I do. Looking forward to trying the Altenew Markers

  15. Awesome card & coloring! My favorite coloring medium right now is watercoloring with THoltz Distress Markers & I want to try ZIG also.

  16. Wow this is really an amazing inspiration and a wonderful card. Something of this kind i haven’t see it before.
    My favorite coloring medium aren’t my copic markers, but now i’ll need some prisma pencils.☺

  17. Aww.. such an beautiful card! beautifully colored! Loved it!Thank you so much for the inspiration! I love coloring the stamps using watercolors, especially using Gansai Tambi watercolors

  18. Stunning! Would never have thought about colouring directly onto patterned paper but will definitely give this a try. Your card reminds me so much of hazy summer days – just beautiful. Lately I have been using coloured pencils to colour my stamped images but my dearest love are the distress markers for all sorts of colour treatments.

  19. beautiful card Therese. I was amazed how well the pencils covered the heavy black lines in the paper. I love my Prismas but need to use them much more than I do.

  20. I like to color stamped images with my Copic markers – I enjoy your videos on YouTube.

  21. As usual, your card is stunning! My favourite blue colour too! I have been meaning to try this idea of stamping and colouring on dsp… will have to give it a go! Thanks for sharing.

  22. Beautiful card, and thank you for all the tips on colored pencils, on pattern paper too! I love my Zig clean color markers but I just got the full set of Prismacolor pencils and you have inspired me to get those out and get coloring! TFS

  23. Beautiful card! Right now it’s colored pencils, but I really hope to try Altenew new markers.

  24. Watercolour is my favourite. I am still practicing on the copic colouring , and pencile colouring . Thanks for this amazing idea. Love it and it’s look gorgeous.

  25. Therese, your card is not only gorgeous, but the process of watching you create it was amazing! TFS!

  26. Love how you coloured on the printed paper with the pencils. I am enjoying zigs most at the moment due to their incredible depth of colour, but I happily move around all colouring mediums depending on the look that I’m after or how I feel.

  27. Your videos always make me smile, Therese.. and yet another lovely card, thanks for sharing!

  28. Beautiful card, and another great video inspiring me to get colouring. I am trying to use my different colouring options but think my current favourite is water colour pencils. 😀

  29. Therese, I love to watch you color and your voice is so soothing. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  30. This looks fabulous on the patterned paper!! My favorite medium is watercolor with Distress Inks or watercolor pencils, but I am going to try it with my Altenew inks!!

  31. BEAUTIFUL card Therese!
    THANK YOU for sharing your video and INSPIRATION! I confess, I haven’t used my pencils much and never over patterned paper, so I am ready to give it a try 🙂
    I usually colour with my Copic markers, I have a lot to learn and I’m really enjoying the journey!

  32. Amazing ! The colours look fabulous on top of the paper very clever indeed and beautifully done. Once again another inspiring and fun video.


  33. What a beautiful card! Thanks for the reminder about stamping on patterned paper…I never think about that. My favorite medium is definitely watercolor but pencils come in a close second.

  34. Goodness, this is gorgeous, Therese … seems those beautiful blooms have a wonderful transluscence about them … what a fantastic technique! My favourite colouring medium at the moment … probably Zigs … love the versatility! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  35. what a great idea to color on the that patterned paper, Therese – need to get out those Prisma pencils – love my Zigs the best for coloring tho!

  36. My favorite medium is distress inks and PRISMACOLOR pencils! Thank you for doing a video showcasing prismacolor pencils! This card is absolutely amazing! I never thought to use on a patterned paper… Gorgeous card and fabulous video. Thank you!

  37. YOU are amazing Therese, your card is beautiful! I guess I color more with copics but you’ve inspired me to try coloring with pencils on patterned paper. Thanks for another great video!

  38. I like the Zig brush markers(now that I have the right water color paper for them). I try watercoloring some but I’m still a novice at that. Your card is super. Thanks

  39. Beautiful card 🙂 i really enjoyed the video tutorial as well. Thanks for sharing. My favourite coloring medium is zig clean color real brush pens, love doing water coloring with them.

  40. Really nice card. I love the water color look and hope to purchase a set of Zig brush markers soon. Thanks for sharing…and the opportunity to win.

  41. Gorgeous card. Really great idea to stamp onto paper and colour – this could be a way to use some of my “saved” paper 🙂 You really give me so many ideas must find more time to play 🙂

    Do I really have to pick a favourite? That’s like asking which kiddo is my favourite – it depends on the day! Lately I’ve been playing with pencils and water based markers and my blender pen.

  42. What a great idea to colour over the patterned paper! Love it. I’m not sure I have a favourite for cards as I haven’t really stepped away from solid stamps much yet. For my colouring books I use markers and gel pens as well as pencils.

  43. Beautiful card! My favorite coloring medium is Copic markers but you have inspired me to try more coloring with pencils. Thank you.

  44. This is gorgeous! I must try this. Favorite coloring medium of late is watercolor, but I’m considering buying a new set of pencils…

  45. Your card is absolutely stunning, Therese! I love the beautiful pop with the blue flower against the woodgrain – superb contrast 🙂 I love my prismacolors to color with – maybe one day I will color like this! TFS! ♥

  46. Beautiful! I love the idea of coloring directly on patterned paper. My favorite (or most often used) coloring technique is ink and watercolor brush.

  47. Therese, you blow me away with your amazing colouring skills. Your such dab hand with those Prismacolour pencils. Stunning design and so classy!! Really impressive and that wood effect is superb. Hugs X

  48. I use distress inks mostly but have started to use Copic markers. The card is pretty with the pencils.

  49. Really lovely card! It has never crossed my mind to use coloured pencils on patterned paper! My favourite colouring medium right now is using inks to watercolour. Thanks for the video.

  50. Your card is just beautiful! I don’t think I’ve ever seen coloring on top of patterned paper like that.
    I like to blend with Copic markers

  51. I have enjoyed Distress inks, but really I love a variety and will watercolor, Zig, Tombow, Gelato, dye inks, acrylics, alcohol inks, crayons……just trying new mediums is fun!

  52. I have never used patterned papers for stamping and coloring, but now I’m going to rethink some of the paper I was going to give away, as much of it was older or too pastel for my style. Beautiful card!

  53. I have never thought to colour on pattern paper, your roses look so beautiful. The transparent look is stunning. Thsnk you so much for sharing such a beautiful creation.

  54. Lovely! Thanks for the reminder to color on those pattern papers…such a beautiful result. Favorite medium is colored pencil…so versatile!

  55. Hi Therese, LOVE this card – beauty done. Thank you for the fabulous video too!
    I just signed up for your Altenew virtual class – excited doesn’t even cover it 😀

  56. I love the flowers and the colors used on them. They are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing.

  57. I think this technique is awesome. Looks great with the muted wood grain pattern showing through. I must add this to my to-do list!
