Design Team Call!

Happy New Year!

We're looking to expand our Design Team and have a few positions available. We are a friendly and helpful team, challenges go live every Friday at 8am GMT and last for two weeks. We have four teams who post once every 4 weeks (although you can join in more often if you want!) and we have lots of wonderful and generous sponsors who allow us to use their images. We are looking for individuals who colour their own images, who have their own blog and a facebook profile. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, drop me an email! Closing date is 14 February.

Week 3 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Dr Digi

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 Dr Digi

Visit our lovely Sponsor

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 Mr Speaker, coloured him with Promarkers and added him to a brick paper I found in my stash.  I've added a die cut fence and some grass plus half pearls.


Billie A. here with my card using the image called Salon Deirdery.  What a fun image. I colored the image  and scene with copics. I stamped the My favorite things sentiment and added to some scraps.  What a great way to spend the day with your loyal friend.

Hi this is Elizabeth with my fun winter penguin card using Dr. Digi's Cuddly Critters Penguin. The penguin was colored with Copic markers and the sky was inked with Distress Oxide Inks. Polka dot washi tape was used and the mountains covered with glitter ice.


Hi! Marjeta here with my first card for CC Challenge this year. I used sponsor's image BBQ Dragon from Dr. Digi Stamps collection. I coloured the image with Promarkers and draw the background with Prismacolor pencils. In 2020, I wish you plenty of fun barbecue parties.


Hi Dawn here with my Dr Digi image Summer Holiday, Derek Dunderton is going on a road trip lol! I coloured this with copics and used the cloud stencil for the background. Such a great image!



Hi! Vic here - Dr Digi have sponsored us this week. I got this amazing image, called Solitaire Saul. It's just like my Hubby! (and my Dad!) I copied the cat and made it a teeny bit smaller as we have 2 cats... a mother and her kitten. I coloured them like the back of our two. :)  I coloured the whole image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens. I 3d-d the guy and the chair on 3d foam. The window is a diecut and the background outside the window is actually one of my hubby's encaustic-art pieces! I haven't added a sentiment to this yet - I may add one at some point.



Hello! Kathy here. I had such a hard time picking a digi this week from Dr. Digi that I picked two! My first features a fun image named Dunderton Decorators Ltd features a creative background (or should I say backdrop?!) made from upcycled wrapping paper The sentiments are computer generated. The second features a lovable pair from a digi named Salon Deirdery. This card is for my stylist who has a great sense of humor and is sure to love it. The front sentiment is from my scrapbook stash. Both of the cards were colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.


 


AuntySue here with my card using the image Solitaire Saul from our sponsor. You can find him hiding in the shop HERE probably in the back office. Coloured with my Markers and kept CAS with some Dp to frame the image.I am sure we know someone that this image reminds you of.


Janet - here is my card for this challenge. I've also used Dr Digi Image Dunderton Decorators Ltd. I've coloured him with Polychromo pencils and decorated it with some tool charms. He's got Magic paint, so it says on the tin, when you paint your wall it comes out patterned.


Just fabulous as always!

Week 1 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios

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 Digi Doodle Studios

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 Penelope Party Girl and coloured her with Promarkers.  I've used off-cuts of papers that I got free some years ago in a magazine - didn't have anything large enough so had to be creative with what I had!



Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Digi Doodles Daisy & Darby Dalmatian Digi Stamp
from our fabulous sponsor Digi Doodles Studio. I coloured with markers & pencils. Die cut out. Embossed a 3D folder called Bubbles, then coloured the spots with a black marker. Made a paper bow to coordinate. A Gracielle sentiment finishes the design.  You can see more details HERE.



Hello.. It's Billie A. with my card using the image called Penelope party girl.  I colored the image with copics. I used My minds eye for the background. I added a few folds of ribbons along the side. I stamped the Simon Says sentiment. I went over her bow with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. You can see more on my card if you click on my name.. Thank you.


Dawn here with my Penelope Party Girl Card, isn't she gorgeous! I coloured her with copic markers
and added a clear glitter gel pen to some of the gold for bling. The background looks so wonderfully textured (so I didn't need to emboss it but I did and you can't see it, lol) and added  rhinestones. 




Hello it is Margaret here.  It wasn't my turn today but the stamps were so cute I had to join in.
I have used Digi Doodles digi stamp Daisy and Darby Dalmation which I have coloured with chalks and Prismacolor pencils.  Sentiment is from We are 3 Sunshine sentiment set.  Added flowers with pearls.

Hi there, I am Jolanda, using Penelope Party Girl which I think is such a pretty and cheerful image from Digi Doodles Studio. I used a balloon stencil from Dutchdoobaoo as a background. Actually there a 2 balloons, a bigger en a smaller one. Hope you like my little project.


Good Morning, Sarah here with my inspiration using the lovely Penelope. She was such fun to colour using my Promarkers and as she is such a cheery character I chose bright colours.


Hello. This is Kym here. For my card I have used the image "Daisy and Darby Dalmatian". I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, added Ranger clear rock candy to the dog's nose and inked around the edge with a VersaMagic black chalk ink pad. A friend gave me these new white-and-black backing papers. I have finished the card off with some red satin ribbon, some new red/white dotty organza ribbon, heart button and a stamped sentiment.


Hi there, it's Margo, I have used the adorable Penelope Party from our fabulous sponsor Digi Doodles this week to make a fun and colourful birthdaycard !  I have coloured her with my copic markers and used some bright orange cardstock to make her pop ! 



Good Morning / Afternoon Coloring enthusiasts. AJ here. Showcasing "Daisy & Darby Dalmatian" a Digi Doodle Studios Digital Stamp. Please visit my blog post @ Dare 2 B Different for more details.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  Good luck to Monica who sadly is stepping down and this is her last challenge with us; thank you for your lovely creations!

This is our last challenge of 2019 and will last for 3 weeks, closing on 10 January 2020!

Ruth:  I've used the Gnome-Men Snow Ho Ho clear acrylic stamp and coloured it with Promarkers.  The sentiment comes with the set and that has been stamped onto an off cut of card.  Everything else is from my stash.


Hello, this is Monica and this is my final DT project here. This time I worked with the cute Musical Winter Winnie digi and created my card design in Silhouette Studio, but colored the image with Prismacolor colored pencils and a few spots of gel pen. You can find more details on my blog on how I added the gradient and the background paper.



Hi there, Dawn here with my project for this fortnight's challenge.  I have used the gorgeous Glass Half Full image from our fabulous sponsor Polkadoodles.  I decided to make a wall hanging to go in my craft room and this image just fitted my idea perfectly.  All the elements on here are from Polkadoodles and the full image is put together in Craft Artist.  The image itself is coloured with my Polychromo pencils and Prismacolour pencils.  You can find more details on my blog, just click on my name to take you there.


Hello  Billie A. with my card using the image Mailing a letter from Polkadoodles. I colored the image with Copics. I used My favorite things stitch die, envelope die and sentiment. I used Stampin up ink and finished with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Winnie White Christmas from our fabulous sponsor   Polkadoodles.  I coloured with markers and pencils. I matted and layered onto a patterned card blank. A bow and pearl complete the card.  You can see more details HERE.


Hi it's Margo here, I have used Glass Half Full from our sponsor Polkadoodles this week,to create a birthday card. I have coloured her with my copic markers and kept the rest of the card very simple.


And I have made a second card for this week using Mr & Mrs Claus from Polkadoodles.
This lovely couple has also been coloured with my copic markers, I have used some older papers from my stash and completed the card with some diecuts.


Hi Dawn here with my card Delivering Gifts by Sledge - Winnie White Christmas. This is my last Christmas card for this year and I just love how it turned out! I used copic markers to colour it and added snow drifts in the background and clouds to finish the scene. The word die finishes it off nicely!



Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a wonderful  image  from Polkadoodles  named “Delivering Gifts by Sledge.” I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I used an upcycled calendar page for the background, covered with a layer of vellum behind the colored image. The “snowdrifts” were easily created with torn cardstock and the fluff on her cap and boots were added with Polar White Flower Soft. The sentiment is from a Beccy’s Place digi set named “Here Comes Christmas.”

 

Hello - it's Helen here with my card for our final challenge of the year!  I've used a very cute image from Polkadoodles called 'Snow Friends' which is available here.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and kept the card layout very simple as it's just such a gorgeous digi stamp!

Week 49 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Bugaboo

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

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 Winter Penguin Ski and coloured him with Promarkers.  I've constructed a background using Polkadoodles Scenic Landscape dies, bakers twine and bell are from my stash.


Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using Christmas rocking horse from Bugaboo stamps  I colored the image with copics. I added the Pretty Pink Posh sentiment with Stampin up ink. I went around the edge of the card with Ranger blue ink.



Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image  Winter Penguin Ski from our fabulous sponsor Bugaboo. I coloured with markers and pencils. A beautiful border die, leaf  flower stamps and dies finish the card.  You can see more details HERE.



This is Elizabeth From Warm Harted with a Bugaboo Image called Ruby Christmas Drink.  This image was colored with Copics and the background paper was done with alcohol inks. Die cuts were used and the frame accented with red pearls.



Hello! Marjeta here with my last card this year. I used Bugaboo image called Ruby Christmas Drink, wich I colored with Promarkers. I added few die cuts and bow. Hope you like it and you will visit gorgeous Bugaboo stamp collection. In the last days of this year, I want you to have fun and do what you enjoy most.



Hi - Vic here! I wanted to share the card I made this week,  with the Bugaboo image: Winter Penguin Ski. He is such a little cutie.  I popped him on a backing of snowy paper and a little hill I cut out (and glittered along the top of). I coloured, using my alcohol markers - promarkers and spectrum noirs. The sentiment is a vellum sentiment - I bought a whole pack of them in The Works for £1 recently - a real bargain! Someone sent me the snowflakes a few years ago - I can't remember if they were punched or diecut.  I finished this card with a double (dry) embossed square and some doodling around the edges. 


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a wonderful  image  from Bugaboo  named “Christmas Rocking Horse.” I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. To make a Christmas ornament, I sandwiched the Rocking Horse between circles of vellum and acetate, attaching both with a bit of snail adhesive.  A small circle punches from silver paper and a bit of aluminum foil (yep… plain ol’ aluminum foil scored with a toothpick) became the hanger. Patterned paper, a bit of ribbon and silver photo corners finish this fun card.



Merry Christmas Janet here. I've used the Bugaboo image Ruby Christmas Drink. I've coloured here using Polychromo pencils. The background is embossed. The rest is a simple die cut greeting and a bow. A real fun image.


Hello AuntySue here with a little Blue card. The image I have used is called Christmas Rocking Horse and you can find in the store HERE.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and all the DP is from a very old pad. I am keeping to my no buy Christmas 2019 papers. Dies are a mixture of Tonic & Mariianne all other embellishments are from my stash. You're welcome to pop over and take a closer look.


Just fabulous as always!
