Hello.  This is Billie A.. I am here with my card using the Christmas couple from All dressed up.. I colored the image with copics. I added some white gel pen and Nuvo drops. I used Lil inker and cut the piece out. I layered onto some green base. I used Stampin Up silver cording and wound it around three times and tied a knot. I added a silver gem that looks like a snowflake to me. I used Simon Says sentiment and cut it into a banner.



Hi , I am Jackie and I was lucky enough to be asked to do a three month GD spot. I jumped at the chance and here is my first make using the fabulous Digi from All Dressed Up. It is called "Christmas Robins". I coloured with various markers and pencils. I added a mix of Dp's and a pretty snowflake corner to finish.



It's Sarah here. I am delighted to be here, for a three month Guest Designer stint, sharing my work with some fantastic designers!!  I chose to use Christmas Robins and made this...




AJ here.. Today I am sharing a CAS Holiday card featuring Christmas Couple, an All Dressed Up Digital Stamp.. I know a young couple who just got married a few weeks ago and this is perfect for their First Christmas as Husband and Wife … To see the details visit my post @ Christmas Couple.

Janet - Here is my inspiration for this weeks new challenge. I've used the All Dressed up image called Christmas Robins. I have coloured them using Polychromo pencils and kept it a clean and simple design. There is some glitter on the Merry and a little red bow to finish.

Marleen:  Using the "Believe in Faith" digital stamp I came up with this creation. Background is stamped and distress inked and my beautiful image is coloured with watercolour pencil.



Hello everyone. Billie A here.. I created my card using the image Believe and Faith from Ching-Chou Kuik.. I colored the image with copics. I added a little white gel pen and gold. I went over the wings with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I used some glitter paper and Simon Says die and layered this Believe 4 times. I embossed the rest of the sentiment. I used Lil inker stitch die.



Sherry GD: I used 'Believe in Faith' by 'Ching-Chou Kuik'...I colored the image with colored pencils. Used the paper crimper on a piece of blue cardstock to put behind the image. Taped a strip of ribbon on the card over the patterned paper, tucked the ends in back. Then taped the image and blue cardstock onto the card and glued the flowers on.


Sherry GD: I used 'Toadstool Head' by 'Ching-Chou Kuik'...I colored the image with colored pencils. Used distress ink around the image and patterned paper. Added a piece of coffee stained lace across the card. Attached pop-dots to the back of the image and added it to the card. Glued the butterflies, mushrooms, leaves and flowers onto the card.


NanaConnie:  I also used Toadstool Head, colored with ProMarkers and cut with a die from Tonic Studios.  The brown rectangle is cut with a Cross Stitched die from Lawn Fawn and the orange one is cut with a larger die from the Tonic Studios set.  I added Glossy Accents to her wings.
The dragonfly and butterfly are cut with Cottage Cutz dies. Everything is mounted 
onto a kraft card base.  The polka dot ribbon was in my stash.


Dawn Frost Hi I'm a guest DT for the next three months! I used Believe in Faith from Ching-Chou Kuik and used copic markers. For the background I used Tiny Dots embossing folder, added liquid pearls and rhinestones. I coloured the ribbon purple which symbolizes Alzheimer's which runs in my family.


Hi crafty friends, Lynsey here on my second month of Guest Designer and I have used the adorable Toadstool head.  I have coloured her all in copic markers and used some lovely bright papers which march the pens I used, she has some glitter glue on her wings and lots of wink of stella in her hair.  See you next month xx




AJ:   I am sharing a CAS card featuring Toadstool Head by Ching Chou Kuik.. She could be used on a Christmas/Holiday card , as Lynsey (above) as done, but i decided to do a Thinking Of You everyday card... To see more details, please visit my blog post Toadstool Head to see more details..

Hi Carol GDT here of crafty-stamper.  This is my second GDT card using Believe in Faith-coloured with promarkers.Papers from The Works,glamour dust/lace/liquid pearls ribbon from stash -sentiment and butterfly die were craft mag freebies.

Week 40 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Kinda Cute

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 Kinda Cute

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.

Also don't forget we are also always looking for people to guest spot on our DT. So if you would like to be considered as a GDT, after your name on your entry add the letters GDT.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.   We welcome Nicola to our team as a Guest Designer for three months!

Ruth:  I've used one of the Unicorns from the set and coloured it up with Promarkers.  I have a lot of offcuts of card stock that I use for card bases so have used one here and layered the image to hang over the edge to make it look bigger!  The banners have been made with offcuts of thin card that I coloured with Promarkers.


Marjeta - Today I will show you my card which I made with Kinda Cute image. As you can see they  have adorable images. I choose Unicorne digital stamp and coloured  with Prismacolor Penciles. Colors I used: Pumpkin orange, Sunburst Yellow, Yellowed orange, Orange, Lemon Yellow,  Burnt Ochre, Warm grey - 10, 20 30%, Light Peach, Salmon pink.

 

Elizabeth (guest designer).  I created my card using this cute snowman scene from Kinda Cute Stamps. I started by decorating a tag with designer paper and colored the image with Copics (cool shadow, powder blue and horizon green). I die cut snowflakes and added liquid pearls to them for added dimension. A little bit of washi tape was added to the corner of the image and set it off with a matching bow.



Hello Billie A. here.. Today I am using the Unicorn images from Kinda Cute.. and they sure are cute..
I found some scraps of designer papers and I liked the fun rainbows. So I added them to the base. I then used My favorite things circle die. I colored the images with copics and using Quick Quote chalk ink went around the edge of the circle. I added this to the card. The sentiment is from Simon Says and I just stamped and added foam tape and added the sentiment to the card. I used a little Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the horns.  You can see more at my blog.. Ink on my fingers


GDT Nicola - I have used the 'Tickling A Snowman' image.   I make a lot of Christmas cards to send overseas, so I like to make them pretty CAS for ease.  I have gone rustic with a Kraft base and used outline stickers to decorate.  The image is coloured with ProMarkers.


HI - It's me again - Vic . I got to play with some super-cute images this week, from Kinda Cute...
Unicorns! You get 3 in the set - and I couldn't resist using all 3 on this card... but I guess you could just use one, or two. I coloured the little cuties using my alcohol markers, popped a little wink-of-stella on their horns too...they sparkle in the right light. I diecut some teeny tiny stars and punched a border. Finally, I stamped a sentiment and added a little bit of stickles diamond sparkle, here n there. 



AJ here …  I have two Unicorn themed cards to share today.  These two cuties are from the Unicorn Digital Set by Kinda Cute.  Don't you just love the sentiments that I put with them ?
Take a closer look on my blog @ Unicorns …



Janet - I've also used to unicorn from Kinda Cute. I've coloured him with Polychromo pencils. I decided I fancied a rainbow unicorn, He's is kinda cute too. The rainbow background is distress inks on water colour card.


Just fabulous as always ladies.

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

Chris:  Using the cute Dancing Penguin image from Fred She Said, I created a simple fold back card, covering the card base with a snowflake patterned DP and embossed white card for the snow.  I added a die cut tree border, with white gel pen ‘snow’, and a stamped & embossed  sentiment banner. I adhered the cute penguin which was  coloured with copics and fussy cut over the edge of the fold.  A touch of stickles glitter to his hat and on the snowflakes to finish.


Ruth:  I've used Dancing Penguin and coloured him with Promarkers.  I've created the background using Polkadoodles Layering Trees die and Scenic Landscapes die.


Hi! Hanna here. I've the used this cutie called Dancing penguin. I've coloured the image with Distress inks. The snowflake is a Sizzix die and the patterned papers are by KaiserCraft.


Hello.. It's Billie A.. I am back with my card using the image Dancing penguin.  I started by coloring my image with copics. I extended the hill a little with a black sharpie so that I could make him on a frozen lake vs. a snow hill. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle brush to the ice.  I used some Simon Says stamps that looked like twigs and used Stampin up ink for the background. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. To complete the card background base I used Bella Blvd. designer papers then added the image which was cut from Lil inker stitch die. I added some sequins.  Check out some of the other awesome penguins and stamps at Fred she said.


Jane - I have used the super cute Emma Snowball  on my card today and I've coloured her with Copics. Colours are listed on my blog! 


Hi, it is Lou. I have also used the Dancing Penguin image. I coloured the penguin and background with Copics, which are listed on my blog and then added some Wink of Stella (you can see it in the close-up on my blog). I used a snowflake embossing folder on the card, before I adhered the coloured image.


Just fabulous as always ladies.
