I've been quite taken by the idea of illuminated letters for a while, and have done a few letters, and painted a couple as gifts for friends, but since I know how much people like colouring in, I decided to list them as electronic files, for you to keep, print when you like, and colour in or paint.
Print as many copies as you like, as long as they're not for commercial use, but don't give away copies of the file.
Each letter will be illustrated differently - and each one you colour will be different too! I've included some examples of my painted versions too. You are not getting a painting, you are getting a pdf file of a black/white line drawing.
Have fun! Grab those pencils and paints, and away you go!
Your files will be available for download, direct from Etsy, once payment is complete. In the zip file there are two PDFs of this letter - one standard A4 (or letter) size, with a border to allow for framing, and one that's "large" - it fills the paper - I did this so my grandson would find them easier to colour in. There's also a copy of a license agreement which says that you will only use this for personal use and not give away or resell copies of the file. There will be no watermark on your purchased copy.
If you are on flickr, feel free to post photos of the coloured in versions to my flickr group! - http://www.flickr.com/groups/wicckedcoloured/
I personally use water colour paper and water colour paints, but they're great with pencils, water colour pencils, textas, markers - whatever you like to work with!
