Hey everyone, It’s Katie here today sharing a free printable with you guys: Crafter inspired postcards that you can print out, color and send to all of your maker friends!
A few months ago I started sketching what I called “crafter doodles.” They were fun little cartoon doodles all about the life of a crafter, basically crafting memes in doodle form. I think we can all relate to them! I designed these colorable postcards inspired by my original Crafter Doodle sketches.

Feel free to print and color as many copies as you want. Spread the maker movement!
The free download is the completely inked version, but I started the postcards by sketching out the crafter characters with the MONO Drawing Pencil Set. I always start my sketches with pencil before inking them so that I can refine the design until I’m completely happy with it.
Next I inked the designs using Tombow’s NEW MONO Drawing Pens in the 03 and 05 points, erasing my pencils lines with the Black MONO Plastic Eraser (My favorite eraser- I love the black as it never looks dirty!).
Grab your Irojiten Colored Pencils because it’s time to color! I used a variety of the pencils, but mostly used the Fluorescent set. I loved the happy neon colors.
Use contrasting colors between the background and the crafter character for pop art look.
Have fun coloring!
