Week 14 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by A Day For Daisies

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

Our weekly challenge theme is always Anything Goes

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.
Please note, we are a colouring challenge and therefore you must display some colouring on your project - I'm sorry but we don't accept pre-coloured images.

This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies


Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the co-ordinator and sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  We welcome Monica and Julie to the team who join us from our recent Design Team call!

Ruth:  I've used this cute Just Like Mom Duck which I've coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are all random off-cuts from my stash and I'm trying to use up!


Monica: I have used Dandelions in a Mason Jar and colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils. I opted to make two of the flowers to still be in full bloom. I cut the image out with a tag die and added it onto an embossed card panel with tape and a brad. The cardpanel is popped up with craft foam and the sentiment is cut out of black cardstock. I have kept the white CAS aspect going on this card.


Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the image "A gift from the stars".  I started by coloring the image with copics. I then added glitter to the stars. I added foam backing and added this to the designer paper. I added some ribbon and punched Stampin up flowers and MS leaves. I added some bling to the centers. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  Perfect baby card.



Hello there. Jackie here with a sweet card I made with Flowers in my garden  from the awesome A Day For Daisies. I coloured her up with markers and pencils. I used some beautiful Tonic Dp's and a pretty paper bow, roses and leaf die cuts. I really love how she turned out and hope you do to.


Hi there, Margo here with my card for this week using the lovely Ballet Slippers from our sponsor A Day For Daisies.  I have coloured the digi with my Copic Markers and used a die from Studio Light for the card shape, the ballet dies are from Marianne Design, I had not used them before but they work great with this digi.


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Breeze In Spring."  I colored the little cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen and paper -pieced a scrap of beautiful patterned vellum for her blouse. A handful of pretty flower stickers added some color and dimension to the card. I added a close up of her face to show the delicate beauty of this image. Isn't she lovely?


Hello. Dawn here sharing my project which features "Wild Fall Poppy"  I knew I had to colour this image using my Distress Inks and a waterbrush - it just has that Watercolour feel to it I think.  I used two different background papers on this card which compliment each other nicely and stamped the sentiment using some word chain stamps.  More details on my blog.  There are lots of other Wild Flower digital images over on the Day for Daisies website if you fancy a quick look.  



Hello, it's Julie here sharing my first DT post for the Color Crazy team, and I'm thrilled to be here!  I uses Dandelions in a Mason Jar, using some rather non-traditional colors for my dandelions, but I like how bright they are!  You can find all the details about this card on my blog, and other great images to color on the A Day for Daisies website.



Hi again! Vic here! I though I would jump in this week, and work with team D on the stunning images from A Day for Daisies. I got "afternoon snack" which looks a lot like a scene in my back garden! I used my promarkers and alcohol pens to colour the image, stamped with tree banch and flowers, and added some tiny diecut flowers over the top. I chalked a sky background on the tag and ran an embossing folder through  my bigshot to create the textured background. I may add a sentiment to this card, but haven't chosen it yet. 


Dawn - I chose to use A Day for Daisies -  Daisy Bird Bath and made a CAS card and kept it very simple. I coloured the image with copic markers and popped up daisies and the butterflies. I used chalk for the clouds and then added the sentiment. 



Hello it's Helen here to share my card using the very beautiful 'Bulb Window' image from A Day for Daisies available here.  It's such a striking image and I coloured it with Promarkers adding some gingham paper, a simple sentiment and some gems



Silke here: For my card I used the sweet picture Flower Maiden 2 from A Day for Daisies. A patterned design paper was applied on a card. The image was colored with copics, then punched out and framed before the image was positioned on the card. Two flower tendrils were punched out and placed next to the picture. The sentiment and some rhine stone  were added on  the card.


Hello, It's Sherry here to share my card using the beautiful 'Pearls In My Hair' by 'A Day For Daisies'. The image is colored with colored pencils. Then I cut out two vine dies and colored the leaves with a colored pencil. Used a distressing tool around the image, card and paper then added distress ink. Taped the patterned paper onto the card then glued a piece of coffee stained lace on. Taped the image onto the card, then glued the vines, flowers and flatback pearls on.



Just fabulous as always!

Week 13 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Fred She Said

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

Our weekly challenge theme is always Anything Goes

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.  Please take a moment to read our rules to the right!

This week our sponsor is Fred She Said


Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  We are sad to say goodbye to Melle Clef who is stepping down from the DT and this is her last week - thank you for being part of the team!

Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the fun image called Nolan and bullfrog.  I decided to make a scene. I colored the image with copics and the ground. I added a branch in the water which after I trimmed down the card I lost most of it. I added some rocks and weeds. The tree is a stamp from Lawn Fawn and sentiment. I wasn't happy with the top greenery part so I cut out some greenery from scraps. I used my cloud template for the sky and went over the frog and lake with Wink of Stella.  You can see more on my blog at Ink on my fingers.



Hi! Vic here! I used the lovely Calla Lilies image from Fred She Said.  To colour, I used my promarkers and other alcohol pens.  I  had a go at hand-writing the sentiment myself,  and drew a few extra stalk-ends beneath the sentiment.  I inked and embossed the edges and finished off with two cuttlebug die-cut corners. I think this is a simple card. fitting for the occasion. 


Hello. It's Melle ClefI used the digistamp Calla Lilies by our sponsor Fred she said.
I made the background directly on my craft colour cardbase with a few stamps, white Versamagic, Brown Versafine et golden embossing powder. I  printed my Lilies and coloured them with Twinmarkers, and sticked them to my card base with 3d foam. Calla Lilies digi is very easy to colour and I love the effect of these beautiful flowers on my card.



Hello! Marjeta here with my new card. I used beautiful image from Fred she said called Calla Lilies. I colored with Prismacolor Penciles. Colors I used: Chartreuse, Lemon Yellow, Green Grass, Spring Green, Powder blue, Blue Slate and Cool Gray 10%.



This is Elizabeth using a fabulous image called Calla Lilies from Fred She Said. This is a perfect image for the spring season. I colored the image with buttercup yellow, tea rose and peach from Copic markers. I wanted to highlight the pretty flowers so used lots of layering from nested die cuts. Added ribbon, enamel dots and a small butterfly as embellishments.


Hi Dawn Frost here, I've used such a great boy image Nolan & the Bullfrog for my card. I popped up the bullfrog and created a mini scene with clouds done in chalk in the background. I kept the card simple with the only embellishments the hello word die and epoxy dots. 



Janet here, I've also used the Calla Lilies. I've coloured them using my polychromo pencils. The background has been done using an embossing folder and lightly brushed over with some squeezed lemonade distress ink.


Just fabulous as always!

This week our sponsor is Little Blue Button Stamps

Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  

Ruth:  I've used Coffee Love and coloured her with Promarkers.  The papers are from Funky Hand Now That's Funky cd and are no longer available.  The buttons are from my stash.  I've cut the Hello sentiment die (Polkadoodles) with offcuts of card from my stash to match the colours in the papers.


Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using the fun image called Coffee lovers. This set comes with some sentiments and other coffee related images. I decided just to use the girl image. I colored her with copics. I then fussy cut her out. I took some Kraft cardstock and Hampton background stamp and stamped using Stampin up ink. I then cut the image down so no borders and went around the edged with Ranger ink. I then layered this on a scrap of Quick Quote designer paper. I took a piece of white paper and using Ranger ink smeared this on the scrap and flicked with water. I then stamped the Stamp Simply sentiment and used SU tag die. I took twine and tied a bow and added to the tag and finished my card with some sequins.



Hiya, Jackie here! Loved this image so much I joined in even though it isn't my week to post! I used the Little Blue Button image called Coffee Lovers. I coloured her with pencils and fussy cut her and the coffee cup. I cut an aperture out of some Kanban card. I layered behind with First Edition Dp. I added banners with more RE Dp and added a Craftwork paper bow. More details can be seen here


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Coffee Lover." One reason I love working with digis is that you can change their size. For this card, I placed part of the enlarged image onto a background that I created by repeating one of the sentiments. Colored the coffee diva with luscious shades of brown, plus gray and a shout of aqua.  Oh… and just had to add some coffee colored enamel dots. 


I liked the images this week so much that I asked to make a second card using "Sweet Geisha Charlie."  
Colored the image of Charlie with Spectrum Noir markers and paper pieced her lovely tailored sheath dress with Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami Paper. The sentiment is from a Tiddly Inks set named "Beary Sweet." 


Hello this is Margaret.  I printed Little Blue Button stamp Sweet Geisha Charlie onto white card, cut out, coloured with markers and layered onto doily and then onto Japanese paper.  Added flower brads and layered all onto red card.


Hi there, it's Margo, I have used Sweet Geisha Charlie from our sponsor Little Blue Button Stamps and coloured her with my Copic Markers.  I have used a paper doily, a piece of lace and a twine with some transparent flowers.



Silke: For my card I used the sweet picture Sweet Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button Stamps. First I embossed a hot pattern and then put it on the card.  For the background, the sky and the ground were watercolored and then the paper was placed in the middle of the card. The image was coloured  with Copics, was cut out and fixed with Dimenionals. Now a plant die cut and a flower branch with lanterns were added. At the end the sentiment was embossed hot and fixed on the card and the flowers were decorated with glitter stones.


Hello, Sherry here using the beautiful 'Sweet Geisha Charlie' from 'Little Blue Button Stamps'.
For my card I colored the image with colored pencils. Cut out the image with a frame die. Embossed a piece of grey cardstock then used a die to cut out a flower pattern. Went around the paper with a distressing tool. Then put distress ink around the image, card, vines and on the embossed paper. Used a paper crimper on a piece of red cardstock and taped it behind the grey. Taped the papers together and taped the image onto the card. Added some red ink to the flower petals. Glued the vines and flower on. Then glued on the small butterflies and added the butterfly sticker.


Hello, Lynne GDT here with my card using the gorgeous Sweet Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button. I have coloured her with copics and added branch and symbol stamps from my stash. 


Jane - I have also used the super cute Sweet Geisha Charlie for my card, colouring her with Copics.


Hi! Hanna here with a tri shutter card this time using this cute digi stamp called Sweet Geisha Charlie. I've coloured her with Distress Inks and I've used both Stickles in Star Dust and Glossy Accents on the flowers in her hair and on her dress. The papers are from the Dear Heart Collection by Basic Grey.


Jane here, Guest Designer, I had a play with the Coffee Lover digi set from Little Blue Button Stamps
I have coloured her with Promarkers & Niutop pencil, matted and layered onto papers from Nitwit collections.  

Carole here with Coffee Love from Little Blue Button Stamps. She is coloured with Copics and a few white Posca pen highlights. I popped her on foam pads on top of a blended Distress Oxide background which had some water spritzed on to bleach out some colour. More DO was applied through a stencil to give a bit more texture to the background.
