Week 1 - Anything Goes Craft Challenge - Sponsored by Polkadoodles

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.  
Our other rules can be found in the sidebar.

This week we are very kindly sponsored by Polkadoodles

Our sponsor is very generously giving the winner of this challenge the prize of 3 single digis from their store.

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.

Ruth:  I've used the fabulous Work and Play 4.  The brick paper is from the collection along with the image which I've coloured with Promarkers.  All I've added are die cut words which I've layered up and used offcuts from the large numbers plus added glossy accents to the top.

Penny:  I used Polkadoodles  Banana's About You digital stamp and colored him with copic markers E50, E13, E15, E18, and Y08.  I cut vines using my Cricut and numerous hearts that I added to this valentine paper from my stash. This will be a great Valentine's card!

Julia:  I have used Polkadoodles Octavia Moonfly Dragonfly I coloured her up using my copic's and created a little background scene too

Hello.  This is Kym here.  I created my own journal recently and decided the time was right to decorate the front of my journal.  I have used the Polkadoodles image called "Ula - Be a Unicorn" as I loveeeeee anything to do with unicorns. I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to her wings.

Promarkers used:
Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Hair/horn - Duck Egg, Pastel Blue, Azure, Fuchsia Pink and Pink Carnation.
Wings - Pastel Blue and Stickles glitter glue.
Tail -  Duck Egg, Pastel Blue and Azure.

Happy new year from me - Vic!  The new year has started very well for me...I have been promoted :) - and become a proper design team member, and I am THRILLED! Here is my first card for the team...   I used "birdhouse 3" from Polkadoodles  and a few dies ( the frame shape, the birds, and "happy") and a  few punches (the blue borders and the butterflies).  I coloured this with a mixture of alcohol pens... Promarkers: lime green, peacock green, cool aqua, rose pink, deep brown.
Spectrum Noir: JG7, DR6, EB8, EB7, EB2, TN9.

I also added some fine glitter to the birdhouse roof and around the heart. 

Janet - I'm also pleased to announce that I am now a fully fledged DT member after spending time as a GDT, So pleased to join the team. I've used Polkadoodles image Dancing Queen and you can find it here. I have coloured her with Copic pens.
