Week 4 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Dr Digi

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

We have a new challenge every Friday at 8am GMT however all our challenges last for two weeks and the 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 or digitally 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.

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 Baking Brian and coloured him with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue for the candle flames.  I've kept this card rather simple - scored a border around the edge of the card and not added any papers.


Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using the Dr. Digi image called Angling Andy. I created the background with copics.  I used my cloud template to create the sky. I went over the lake with a glimmer pen. I also colored Andy with copics and wanted him to be standing on a dock so I created a wooden dock. I added some Spectrum noir sparkle pen to the rainbow trout. I used Oct. afternoon papers and added the Tech. Tuesday sentiment.  You can see more on my card by clicking on my name.


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Corporal Clegg." Colored the dapper gent with Spectrum Noir markers and a white gel pen.  Found some wonderful patriotic paper in my stash that compliments the image and the sentiment is computer generated. To see more, stop by my blog 


Jane - I have also used the fabulous Corporal Clegg to make a birthday card for my brother. I used Copics to colour and I have listed them on my blog.


Hello Margaret here.  I have printed Dr Digi's digi stamp Fetching Fido onto white card.  Added coloured balloon and a sentiment from We are 3 All Occasion sentiment set.  Coloured with chalks and markers and drew grass and birds.  Printed the digi again, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.  Layered all onto blue card.



Silke:  For this card I have used the image Alice the alpaca from Dr. Digi. First a green design paper was attached to a card. Wrap a thin satin ribbon around a second square design paper and tie a bow before the paper was attached to the card. Colour the alpaca with Copics, punch it out and fix it on the card. Attach the word and the stars made of green glitter paper to the card and decorate with glitter stones.

Hi! Hanna here with my card using a digi stamp called Bath Time Dierdery. Such a cool lady I must say so of course she needed some purple hair! I coloured her with Distress Inks. The patterned papers are from the Mama-razzi2 Collection by Bo Bunny. I also used some Glossy Accents and Stickles in Star Dust. I wrote the quote on my computer. I think it fits really well with the image.


Hello, Carole here with a tag I made using Alice the Alpaca. Isn't she sweet! I decided to give her some sleek fur, as she's all spruced up for a party. I did this by layering strokes of Copic markers. The tag is coloured with Distress Oxides and has stamping, stencilling, modelling paste and heat embossing. You can find out more by visiting me here.




Hi Janet here. I've used the Dr Digi image called Martini Bianca for my card this time. I've coloured her using alcohol pens. I have used pieces from my bit box of black an red card to make the background and decorative square. Lastly just added some ribbon and glitzy bits.


Just fabulous as always!
