Week 37 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Blog Candy Giveaway

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 we don't have a sponsor but there will be a prize for the randomly drawn winner! 

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 a Lili Of The Valley stamp - Moving Day and I've coloured it up with Promarkers.  The papers are from my stash and I'm slowly using them up - this is a retired Funky Hand set.


Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using an old Imagination woodblock red rubber stamp.. I stamped her on some watercolor paper and using a Daniel Smith dot sample paints I painted the image in. I then used Spellbinder circle die to cut her out. I painted a strip of the watercolor paper and using the Spellbinder banner die I cut out the Reverse confetti sentiment. I ran a scrap yellow through and embossing folder and added this to the base of teal card stock. I added the image and sentiment with some foam dots and completed with some sequins. I love the soft colors of the paint. You can see more on my card over at Stampinwithinkonmyfingers.



Helloooo, it's Jackie here.  I used an image from A Day For Daisies, coloured with markers.  I added some fab Dp's with a co-ordinated sentiment.   You can see more details HERE.


Hi Dawn here, I've used an image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps Hank the Hopeless Hunter! I love the ducks eyes, they look hilarious! I coloured it with copic markers and added the grass which I think turned out really well!



This is Elizabeth with a cute card from an image at Faery Ink called Tea Time Witch.  She was colored with Copics and liquid pearls added for some dimension. She is framed out in a 
die cut with more liquid pearls and some Halloween-inspired stickers.  Lots of gems along the side were added just for fun.


Dear crafters! Marjeta here! Today I would like to present to you a masculine card. I used One Stitch At a Time digi stamp which I coloured with Promarkers. For frame and sentiment I used Tina's dies (NajlepÅ¡i par).



Hello Margaret here.  I have used papers from We are 3 Howdy Autumn paper collection
Sentiment from We are 3 Itty Bitty Fall sentiment set, Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp Autumn Fantasy  (My eyes are bad so I printed the digi stamp out large, coloured it with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens, then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.)  I look forward to seeing everyone's entries.


Hi Margo here, I made this card with Oriental Girl by All Dressed Up and coloured her with my Copic markers.  I used some butterfly diecuts and flowers and paper from my stash.



Hi again - Vic here! I wanted to share with you a card I made recently, using  "Mouse Daisy" from A Day For Daisies. I wanted this card to be kept quite simple, so coloured the image with my alcohol pens and dry embossed the edges of the card. Please see my blog for more details.


Hi AuntySue here with a Christmas card I am so trying my best to get ready for the mad rush. For my card i have used a Mo Manning image from Digital PencilToo called Wishing for Snow you can find the image HERE if you would like more details please pop over to my blog you are more than welcome


Hi Janet here, For this ATG challenge I've used the Pink Ink Giraffe stamp set.  I've stamped it onto Kraft card and coloured it with Polychromo pencils. I've stamped some of the leaves onto card and cut them out to give a bit of dimension to the card. Then just a sentiment to complete. I love these images.


Just fabulous as always!

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

Ruth:  I've used Tree Asana and coloured her with Promarkers.  The papers are all from Funky Hand and are no longer available - I've had them in my stash for years and I'm trying to use all my bits up!


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Christmas Joy from our fabulous sponsor Little Blue Button. I coloured her with pencils and fussy cut her. I die cut a snow globe and added a snowy BG. Couture Creations Dp and some die cut poinsettias finish the card.  You can see more details HERE.



Hello.. Billie A. here.  I am using the image called Christmas Joy.  I found this awesome designer paper by Pink Fresh Studio that has the Joy Joy Joy already on the paper and the presents.. So I used this and I colored the image with Copics then fussy cut the image out. I added the image with some foam dots. I went over the ornaments and her hat and fun with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.


Hi! Hanna here. I've used Tree Asana by Little Blue Button Stamps. The image is perfect for a card to give to my yoga teacher. :) I coloured Asana with Distress Inks. I've used Distress Inks in Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Spun Sugar and Antique Linen for my background. I sprayed and dripped some water and I also sprayed some Opaque White Color Mist. I used a stencil and some Texture Paste by Ranger to add some texture to my background. I made the greeting using my Dymo.


Hi, crafty friends.  It's Julie here.   I've used Tree Asana from Little Blue Button Stamps.  I have a friend who likes yoga, so I made this card with her in mind.  I colored Asana with Copic markers, computer generated my sentiment, then found a paper that I thought had a bit of an Oriental feel to it. Some gold puffy circles finish it off.


Hi Silke here. I have used the image Tree Asana from the sponsor Little Blue Button.  For this card the background was designed with alcohol ink colors in purple and pink. A rectangle made of pink glitter cardboard was attached to it. The motive was colored with Copics, punched out and placed on the card. Then the hot embosste saying, some small hearts and a watercolored flower were added.


Hi Lou here. I have used the Tree Asana image from Little Blue Button Stamps - our sponsor for this challenge. I have coloured the image with Copics markers and adhered the coloured image to a Kraft card with some relaxing sentiments. You can find out more details here.


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a few images from Little Blue Button’s digi set named "Christmas Joy."  I printed the tree onto white card stock, then printed it a second time onto green plaid paper. Fussy-cut the plaid tree and layered it atop the other image. Printed, colored and cut five of the elegant ornaments, adding a gemstone to the center of each. After attaching them to the tree, added a final bit of color by gluing green twine bows to the tops.  


Hello Margaret here I have printed Little Blue Button stamp Christmas Joy onto white card, coloured with Prismacolor pencils, cut out and layered onto papers from Christmas basics paper pad and then onto green card.  Cut out Merry Christmas from the same paper pad and attached to green card with star brads.  Layered all onto red card.

Monica here with this cute Kawaii Valentine Giraffe from Oddball Stamps Co. I printed her onto dark Canson Mi-Tientes paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I kept the layout of the card very simple so that the sweet image kept the focal spot on the card.



Hello... Billie A. here with my fun baby card using the fun image called Kawaii Valentine Giraffe.. I thought it would make a great baby card so I colored the image with copics. I then used Stampin up ink and Simon Says stamp and created the background. I used My favorite things stitch die I mounted this on a piece of yellow Quick quote card stock then onto Sizzix designer papers.

Hi Dawn here with an amazing image of me, lol; Monday Mornings Frazzled Fran Needs Her Coffee is so me first thing in the morning I need my coffee!  I coloured Fran with copic markers and used Dotted with Stars embossing folder for the background. Then I cut up and added my ringlets die to the background, I thought they looked like coffee cup rings!



Hi, it's Julie with a sweet, sweet giraffe that I got to color up! This is Kawaii Valentine Giraffe, and I colored it with Copic markers.  I found the fun giraffe print papers at Imagine That Digistamp.   I used a die on the edge of each paper, and a hanging heart to tie in with the heart on the giraffe.  A stamped sentiment below the giraffe, and the card is done.

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

Ruth:  I've used Expecting A New Baby from Winnie Celebrations 3 and coloured it up with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue here and there.  The sentiment is also from the same Winnie collection.


Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using the image Winnie sugar sparkles sharing is caring. I cut the image out first with Lil Inker stitch die. I then created the background using my cloud and ground template and Ranger ink. I then colored the image with copics. I went over her bow, apple, trim, shoe flowers with Nuvo glitter brush. I tied a strip of twine and added the Reverse Confetti sentiment. I added her to a piece of designer paper.



Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Winnie Mermaid from our fabulous sponsor Polkadoodles. I coloured with pencils. I then added some Trimcraft Dp. A paper bow and sentiment along with a couple of charms finish the card.  We love to see your work!  You can see more details HERE.



Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a sweet image from Polkadoodles named "Miss Kelly Von Sweets." I colored the little cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. 



Hello! Kathy againThe Polkadoodles images this week were so cute that I couldn't decide which of the images to use… so I chose TWO! My second card features a scene named Anchors Away. I wanted to make it look like Mermaid Winnie was really sitting on the anchor so created a Z-Fold card. The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.  The water bubbles were created with clear sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops [Clear Morning Dew] and the sentiment is from a Bugaboo Stamps digi set named Under the Sea.



Hello,  It's Julie here.  I had to join in when Polkadoodles was sponsoring as the images are too cute not to color up!  This is Ruby Birthday Cake looking beautiful and ready to celebrate!  I colored her with Copic markers, used papers from We Are 3 Digital Shop, some foil trim, and baker's twine to finish off the card.  She's so cute, I didn't even think she needed a sentiment!


Hello, Carole here to share my card made with PolkadoodlesWinnie Mermaid - Anchor's Away:
I printed the digi and die cut it with a scalloped oval die.  I used Copic markers to colour the image, adding some white highlights and some Stickles Crystal glitter. I inked the background lightly while the die was in place, so that I got an even, crisp edge to the inking line on the outside.
I used design paper for my background, tucking a doily behind the image. The mermaid image is popped on foam pads to give some dimension to the card. I die cut some seaweed from the design paper and inked the edges. I arranged the seaweed, leaving the fronds loose and curled, with dried flowers which I dyed with Dylusions ink spray, and Little Birdie flowers. I die cut a circle, stamped the sentiment, inked the edges and popped the sentiment disc on foam pads.



Hi Dawn here to share my card with Polkadoodles Octavia Bird in the Hand. I kept it really simple and just used copic markers since Octavia is such a gorgeous image. I've been taking colouring lessons and will have to redo this when I've complete the course on pleats, it'll be great to see if I learned anything, lol!



Hello! Lou here to share my card using Skateboard Little Dudes from Polkadoodles. I actually followed a sketch for my card so that I could use the digital papers that come with the digital stamp. I have coloured the image with Copics markers, cut the papers to fit the sketch and adhered one of the sentiments to the card. More details can be found on my blog post - here, including the sketch.




Hello Margaret here I have used Polkadoodles digi stamp Forest Friend Winnie Angel which I coloured with chalks, Prismacolor pencils and glitter gel pens.  Sentiment is from We are 3 Happy Christmas sentiment set


Hi Silke here.  For my card I used the image Winnie Mermaid from our sponsor Polkadoodles. First a design paper and a fishing net were attached on a blue card. The motive was coloured with Copics and fixed on the card. Afterwards the shell, the starfish and fishes made of silver hologram paper were positioned on the card. The sentiment was hot embossed  and placed over the motif. Finally the card was decorated with some sequins.



Janet here, and I have also used the Polkadoodles image Winnie Mermazing Anchors Away. I have coloured the image using Polychromo pencils. The image is layered on a tri-fold card and embellished with ribbon, a string of beads, some fish and a shell charm.
