Color an active volcano – Heffy Doodle

Living under a volcano – Mount Rainier – made me want to color this Geology Rocks stamp set right away. Volcanos are my favorite of all the natural disasters (ok maybe not favorite?) because they give you enough advance warning, you can run! ha! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here’s a better look at the Glossy Accents – it’s scribbled on as loosely as the coloring was done!

  9. Absolutely stunning! You’re one of the best colourists (not sure that’s a word) I’ve ever seen. Every time all I can say is wow. What a talent you have.

  10. OH Sandy, always a joy to see and be mesmerized by your coloring on YouTube and it’s so fun to see your blog just burst with the colorful wonders of your art, too! We are SO very blessed to have a neighbor who is a volcanologist – seriously, until his family moved in, didn’t know there even was such a career! His stories of jet setting around the world to study volcanic seismicity and collecting chemical and data analysis are so fascinating – hee hee! He’s so down to earth and and it’s like a geology lesson for us! Fabulous conclusion to a LAVA-LY fabulous hop!

    Loving the new Hefty Doodle releases.

  26. Sandy I’m just amazed at your coloring and drawing skills!!! Seriously, what a fantastic job you did at making this look so lifelike and dynamic. I love the ashy sky as well. I also really loved how you framed it in black – it gives it a matted finish that makes it look like a framed piece of art work 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us! 🙂

  32. Sandy, you have outdone yourself again! I love this card! I learn so much from you every time I watch your videos. Thanks for sharing.

  33. I love watching your videos because I usually pick up a tip or an idea that I hope I remember when I need it. This time I learned, “Keep going.” It turned out beautifully.

  34. Ash, Girl, Ash! Your sky completely make sense when you figure in the ash. (I experienced the eruption of Mt. Hood in Alaska in the late 80’s) Really unique take on a really unremarkable image.

    Your blog keeps telling me my comment has been used before. Hmm, I’m pretty sure I haven’t commented on any other volcano post you’ve made, nor shared about Mt. Hood. Hopefully this is now enough to get by your digital gatekeeper!

    Update: still can’t post. I’ll try an alternate method.

    1. It came through several times, but no worries. LOL! #internetwoes

    Yeah, but what about those earthquakes?

  37. Ash, Girl, Ash! Your sky completely make sense when you figure in the ash. (I experienced the eruption of Mt. Hood in Alaska in the late 80’s) Terrific card!

  38. Very cool how you created this volcano.

  39. What a masterpiece of art. I have to get serious with colouring.

  40. Wow your coloring :O I learned a lot watching the video. And the sentiment is so funny

  41. Awesome card !

  42. Love your work!

  43. Wow. One of the coolest (well, hottest actually) things I have ever seen in my life was the active volcano on the Big Island in Hawaii. The B&B that we stayed at actually provided rain coats & flashlights because there is almost always a light rain or mist every evening, but we lucked out and had a rare night when it didn’t rain. We had to walk approx one mile over hardened lava to get to the viewing area, and once you’re there, the volcano is approx. 1/2 mile in the distance. The hardened lava was uneven and craggy so it was a challenge to walk on; plus it’s black so walking at nighttime on black lava was quite risky. I was in my mid-40’s at the time & my friends were all 10-15 years older. I was so worried one of them would fall or twist an ankle, but we all made it without a scratch. I can’t imagine how much more treacherous it would have been if it had been raining. It seemed to take forever to get to the viewing area because the anticipation was so great. When we got to the clearing, there were maybe 30-50 people there & everyone was completely silent. The lack of sound was almost eerie, but there was one sound that could be heard. It was a hissing noise as the hot, molten lava hit the ocean & steamed up. I wish I could describe how still the world seemed at that moment. It seemed as though this small group of people were the only people on earth. Off in the distance the volcano was visible. I expected to see lava flowing down the side of the volcano in thick, gloppy floes, but that’s not at all what I saw. Instead, the lava was shooting into the air making a continuous light show of yellows, oranges and reds in a display that would surpass any fireworks you could ever imagine. We’ve all heard the word, “Awestruck,” before, but I can tell you that all previous notions of that word were erased by what I saw that night. “Awestruck,” only describes a fraction of how I felt watching that wondrous display of natural beauty. That was several years ago, but the moment is seared into my heart and memory. I’m not a photographer and I didn’t take any pictures, but, honestly, I didn’t need to take pictures. I will never forget the sites I saw that night.

    1. Whoa thanks for sharing that! You need this stamp set – and need to color what you saw! 🙂

    2. What a fantastic experiece that must have been! Thanks for sharing!

  44. fascinating to watch your process. love the results.

  45. I love this card, how clever!

  46. That volcano looks on fire! So amazing!

  47. A really different stamp set – and a great card. Thanks for the “making skies” encouragement – I’ll try that tissue-touch technique next time I have trouble blending!

  48. Sandy, this card is fantastic! Can’t wait to watch the video later!
