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 Createful Heart Designs


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'd like to welcome Helen and Dawn S as our Guest Designers!

Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the cute image called Murphy takes a nap. I fussy cut him out and then colored the image with copics. I used Basic gray designer paper for the background. The sentiment is from My favorite things and I thought the wall needed a photo so I used Tech. Tues. dies and found a cute mom and child scrap of paper. I finished with a few pearls.


Hello - it's Helen here with my first GDT card.  I'm sharing a card using the very cute Pip hedgehog relaxing in the sun!  I've coloured the digi image using Promarkers and used one of my favourite colour combinations of red and kraft - I chose the patterned paper to match the mushrooms!



Maria : For this Challenge I made a card with Murphy Takes Nap colored with the copic. The stamp has been blended with Distress Oxide forest moss.The sentiment has been embossed with the Ranger Tan powder this color matches everywhere ...On the bone I applied Wink of stella.


Hi Dawn Frost here, I've created a card with Murphy takes a Nap and made it a pick me up card. I used copic markers to colour him and popped up his paws and bone. The background was created with Paw Print embossing folder which I sponged over. I added ribbons and its done!


Hello, It's Sherry here with a card I made using the adorable 'Pip' by Createful Heart Designs. The image is colored with colored pencils. I crimped a piece of red cardstock with a paper crimper for the background and used a distressing tool and distressed ink around the card, paper and image. Taped the paper and image onto the card, then glued on the vine, twine bow and flower.


Hello.  It's Dawn here with my first GDT card for the Colour Crazy Challenge.  I used Pip the Hedgehog from Createful Heart Designs.  The image is coloured with my Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils and the background is done with Pan Pastels.  The backing paper is from a Lili of the Valley pad by Raspberry Road Designs called Baskets and Bunnies.  Sadly I don't think you can get them any more.  I added a sentiment done on the computer and a few flowers to finish off.


Hi there, it's Margo showing you this card I made with the relaxing PIP the Hedgehog from Createful Heart Designs , isn't he adorable ? I haven't used a sentiment yet, I think I will keep him for when someone retires.  I have coloured PIP with my Copic markers and used some paterned papers and according cardstock. Kept the card simple as not everyone likes flowers and things on the card. 


Just fabulous as always!

Hi again, Vic here, sharing my card for this challenge. The paper shelter let me use this lovely image this week - it's called "Unicornmania."  I thought it would be perfect for my friends little girl, who is turning 4 soon. I didn't want to add a lot of other embellishments on this card, as she would probably pick them all off! Lol. I printed the sentiments and her name, on the pc, and added some glitter  on her name, age and unicorn mane and tail. 


Janet here, I have also used Unicornmania from The Paper Shelter. I ahve coloured her with copic pens. I have used a patterned paper back ground, a die cut border and a lovely pink ribbon. The sentiment is foiled.
