Adult coloring is the latest craze taking the world by storm. It is a wonderful way of relaxing and unwinding after a long day at work. The designs do not always be intricate to have value. Sometimes completing an easy design can be just as satisfying. This downloadable cupcake design is perfect for a short coloring break before returning to your daily duties again.
This craft allows you to do more than just color. Once you are done, turn the colored design into a personalized birthday card. Play around with different coloring tools to get different results. Use softer colors for the background, and color the cupcake in rainbow colors for a more vibrant design, or use darker colors for a sleeker look. The recipient of this card will appreciate the time you spent to color the design, and you will be complimented for your artistic flair.
So, grab your coloring tools, put up your feet and get started!
