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 Little Blue Button Stamps

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 Coffee Love and coloured her with Promarkers.  The papers are from Funky Hand Now That's Funky cd and are no longer available.  The buttons are from my stash.  I've cut the Hello sentiment die (Polkadoodles) with offcuts of card from my stash to match the colours in the papers.

Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using the fun image called Coffee lovers. This set comes with some sentiments and other coffee related images. I decided just to use the girl image. I colored her with copics. I then fussy cut her out. I took some Kraft cardstock and Hampton background stamp and stamped using Stampin up ink. I then cut the image down so no borders and went around the edged with Ranger ink. I then layered this on a scrap of Quick Quote designer paper. I took a piece of white paper and using Ranger ink smeared this on the scrap and flicked with water. I then stamped the Stamp Simply sentiment and used SU tag die. I took twine and tied a bow and added to the tag and finished my card with some sequins.

Hiya, Jackie here! Loved this image so much I joined in even though it isn't my week to post! I used the Little Blue Button image called Coffee Lovers. I coloured her with pencils and fussy cut her and the coffee cup. I cut an aperture out of some Kanban card. I layered behind with First Edition Dp. I added banners with more RE Dp and added a Craftwork paper bow. More details can be seen here

Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Coffee Lover." One reason I love working with digis is that you can change their size. For this card, I placed part of the enlarged image onto a background that I created by repeating one of the sentiments. Colored the coffee diva with luscious shades of brown, plus gray and a shout of aqua.  Oh… and just had to add some coffee colored enamel dots. 

I liked the images this week so much that I asked to make a second card using "Sweet Geisha Charlie."  
Colored the image of Charlie with Spectrum Noir markers and paper pieced her lovely tailored sheath dress with Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami Paper. The sentiment is from a Tiddly Inks set named "Beary Sweet." 

Hello this is Margaret.  I printed Little Blue Button stamp Sweet Geisha Charlie onto white card, cut out, coloured with markers and layered onto doily and then onto Japanese paper.  Added flower brads and layered all onto red card.

Hi there, it's Margo, I have used Sweet Geisha Charlie from our sponsor Little Blue Button Stamps and coloured her with my Copic Markers.  I have used a paper doily, a piece of lace and a twine with some transparent flowers.

Silke: For my card I used the sweet picture Sweet Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button Stamps. First I embossed a hot pattern and then put it on the card.  For the background, the sky and the ground were watercolored and then the paper was placed in the middle of the card. The image was coloured  with Copics, was cut out and fixed with Dimenionals. Now a plant die cut and a flower branch with lanterns were added. At the end the sentiment was embossed hot and fixed on the card and the flowers were decorated with glitter stones.

Hello, Sherry here using the beautiful 'Sweet Geisha Charlie' from 'Little Blue Button Stamps'.
For my card I colored the image with colored pencils. Cut out the image with a frame die. Embossed a piece of grey cardstock then used a die to cut out a flower pattern. Went around the paper with a distressing tool. Then put distress ink around the image, card, vines and on the embossed paper. Used a paper crimper on a piece of red cardstock and taped it behind the grey. Taped the papers together and taped the image onto the card. Added some red ink to the flower petals. Glued the vines and flower on. Then glued on the small butterflies and added the butterfly sticker.

Hello, Lynne GDT here with my card using the gorgeous Sweet Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button. I have coloured her with copics and added branch and symbol stamps from my stash. 

Jane - I have also used the super cute Sweet Geisha Charlie for my card, colouring her with Copics.

Hi! Hanna here with a tri shutter card this time using this cute digi stamp called Sweet Geisha Charlie. I've coloured her with Distress Inks and I've used both Stickles in Star Dust and Glossy Accents on the flowers in her hair and on her dress. The papers are from the Dear Heart Collection by Basic Grey.

Jane here, Guest Designer, I had a play with the Coffee Lover digi set from Little Blue Button Stamps
I have coloured her with Promarkers & Niutop pencil, matted and layered onto papers from Nitwit collections.  

Carole here with Coffee Love from Little Blue Button Stamps. She is coloured with Copics and a few white Posca pen highlights. I popped her on foam pads on top of a blended Distress Oxide background which had some water spritzed on to bleach out some colour. More DO was applied through a stencil to give a bit more texture to the background.
