Colouring Challenge - Secret Garden Postcard - 1

So on our last trip to London Emma and I on our traditional Cass Art visit found this gorgeous book of postcards to colour. These are based on the secret garden colouring book (which I do have ... but still haven't been brave enough to tackle - I must stop being so precious about these things). We both decided to buy a copy and start up a new colouring challenge section.

As part of this challenge we can select which postcard we do each time, I see it more as motivating each other to do something more creative in the day - plus it is proven to be relaxing and used as a calming and therapeutic tool by other people.

So this is the post card I decided to start with - mainly because of the flowers and they make me happy. 

I used a variety of pens on this page as I have limited colours in each brand so I like to mix and match to get the colours I wanted for each of the flowers/ leaves. (Please excuse my dogs part of the bed - and her toys, she spreads out just as much as I do!)

This is the only other in progress shot I have for this postcard as I got so into it I forgot to take any more before I finished.

I decided to leave the background on this one - as I had not thought about this before I started and now when I look at it I am very happy with it as it is. 

So come on Emma - It is now your turn to post a postcard :)
