I?m here today with another inspiration challenge. I love looking through photos of hair on Pinterest so when I got the Anya Shops stamp by The Greeting Farm with all that gorgeous hair, I knew I had to find some inspiration for the hair color.

I love funky hair colors and I?m always pinning photos of future colors for my own hair. Today I went through those to find inspiration for coloring. It can be quite a challenge to find the right color marker to match but that?s half the fun. The other part is watching it all come together.

I love the size of these stamps. They fill up a standard A2-size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) perfectly and when you take the time to color an image like this, I think it?s best to keep it clean and simple. I die-cut it with a rounded stitched rectangle die and added a few accents with washi tape and sequins.

Here is a close-up of my coloring. I used Copic® markers which is definitely my preferred medium for coloring stamped images. Coloring has always been my happy place as it melts away the stress of the day. It doesn?t matter what level you are at or what medium you prefer, coloring is such a relaxing hobby!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed a different twist on finding inspiration for your card making.
