Design Team Call!

Happy New Year!

We're looking to expand our Design Team and have a few positions available. We are a friendly and helpful team, challenges go live every Friday at 8am GMT and last for two weeks. We have four teams who post once every 4 weeks (although you can join in more often if you want!) and we have lots of wonderful and generous sponsors who allow us to use their images. We are looking for individuals who colour their own images, who have their own blog and a facebook profile. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, drop me an email! Closing date is 14 February.

Week 6 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Bugaboo

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 Bugaboo

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.

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

Ruth:  I've used one of the images kindly provided by the sponsor for the DT to use - Gus Birthday Recount and I've coloured him with Promarkers; the sentiment came with the image.  Papers are from my stash and I found them whilst having a sort and I know I've had them for ages as they are from Funky Hand!


Hello... Billie A. here with my card using Gus birthday recount..  I colored the image with copics. I went over the glasses and balloon with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I added to a piece of orange card stock. I stamped the Rubber bugger baby bumper sentiment and added it sideways to the card and added the Paper pretties sentiment.


Hi! Hanna here with a Harry Potter card for you today. I have used Harry Potter CollageMagical Tidbit Bookshelf and Magical Tidbit Owl by Bugaboo Stamps for my card. I have coloured the images with Distress Inks. I have used a lot of Glossy Accents and Stickles in Star Dust and Gold on my card. The patterned papers are from the Under the stars collection by 13 @arts. I have die cut stars in gold foam with a die by Marianne Design. I wrote the sentiment on the inside of the card on my computer using the fonts Papyrus and Magical School Two.




Hello Margaret here I have used paper from We are 3 Best of Autumn paper set
Bugaboo sentiment and digi stamp from Stella Tidbits Hard Drive.  I coloured the digi stamp with Prismacolor pencils and markers.  I look forward to seeing your work for the challenge.


Hi, Silke here. For my card I used the cute image elephant love from Bugaboo. First, a design paper with golden hearts was applied to the card. A rectangle of pink design paper was attached afterwards. Now the image was colored with Copics, punched out and placed on the card. A heart and the text were punched out and added. Finally the card was decorated with small golden hearts.


Hi Lou here! For my card I have used the cute elephant image called Elephant Love from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured with Copics and added Wink of Stella for some sparkle - especially the lady elephant's toe nails! The image is adhered to a white card from Envelope Solutions and then some hearts and a couple of sentiments from Good Thinking: Love Notes from Power Poppy were stamped with Love Letter Memento ink. Finally I have added a little wooden butterfly from my stash in the bottom corner with some clear sparkling Stickles. Further details are on my blog with a close up of the image so that you can see the sparkle!


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a fun image and sentiment from a Bugaboo set named “Stella Tidbits-Hard Drive.” I cut the sentiment into two pieces so I could use it on the front and back. The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen then adhered to a card decorated with assorted office themed stickers and papers from my scrapbook stash. The Smead label is upcycled from a box of file folders and the Rolodex card is "authentic." I'm old enough to remember when we used such things because we didn't have computers, or cell phones... or even cable TV! I actually can identify with the confusion that Stella feels on this digi. So funny!) 



Just fabulous as always!

Ruth:  I've used Bella Bear Boutique and coloured her with Promarkers.  I've printed the sentiment from my computer, used ribbons and charm from my stash and the papers are from Dovecraft Back to Basics 3 - all are offcuts from previous projects and I wanted to use them up!


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Dahlia the darling buds, from our fabulous sponsor Polkadoodle. I coloured with marker pens. I kept my colour pallette mono. I have no idea why I saw the image as a pine cone!!! An embossing folder added interest to the BG. A few die cut leaves finish the project.  You can see more details HERE.



Hello.. It's Billie A. here with my card to share.. I colored the image Dahlia the darling buds with copics. I went over the flower with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I stamped Annette Watkins sentiment and used Quick quote chalk ink around the edges. I also went around the mat behind the image and added to the card front.  You can see more on my card over at my blog. Just click on my name.

Hi Dawn here with my Anniversary Winnie Celebrations card, she is gorgeous! I coloured her with copics and added stickles and sakura glitter gel pen to the gold colours. The background embossing folder is softy falling which is for snow. I turned it upside down and now it looks like rising bubbles!


Hi Margo here with my card for this week. I have used Anniversary Winnie Celebrations from our generous sponsor Polkadoodles and I have coloured her with my Copic markers.
The DP is from Studio Light and I also used some flowers from my stash.

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

Ruth:  I've used Mr Speaker, coloured him with Promarkers and added him to a brick paper I found in my stash.  I've added a die cut fence and some grass plus half pearls.


Billie A. here with my card using the image called Salon Deirdery.  What a fun image. I colored the image  and scene with copics. I stamped the My favorite things sentiment and added to some scraps.  What a great way to spend the day with your loyal friend.

Hi this is Elizabeth with my fun winter penguin card using Dr. Digi's Cuddly Critters Penguin. The penguin was colored with Copic markers and the sky was inked with Distress Oxide Inks. Polka dot washi tape was used and the mountains covered with glitter ice.


Hi! Marjeta here with my first card for CC Challenge this year. I used sponsor's image BBQ Dragon from Dr. Digi Stamps collection. I coloured the image with Promarkers and draw the background with Prismacolor pencils. In 2020, I wish you plenty of fun barbecue parties.


Hi Dawn here with my Dr Digi image Summer Holiday, Derek Dunderton is going on a road trip lol! I coloured this with copics and used the cloud stencil for the background. Such a great image!



Hi! Vic here - Dr Digi have sponsored us this week. I got this amazing image, called Solitaire Saul. It's just like my Hubby! (and my Dad!) I copied the cat and made it a teeny bit smaller as we have 2 cats... a mother and her kitten. I coloured them like the back of our two. :)  I coloured the whole image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens. I 3d-d the guy and the chair on 3d foam. The window is a diecut and the background outside the window is actually one of my hubby's encaustic-art pieces! I haven't added a sentiment to this yet - I may add one at some point.



Hello! Kathy here. I had such a hard time picking a digi this week from Dr. Digi that I picked two! My first features a fun image named Dunderton Decorators Ltd features a creative background (or should I say backdrop?!) made from upcycled wrapping paper The sentiments are computer generated. The second features a lovable pair from a digi named Salon Deirdery. This card is for my stylist who has a great sense of humor and is sure to love it. The front sentiment is from my scrapbook stash. Both of the cards were colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.


 


AuntySue here with my card using the image Solitaire Saul from our sponsor. You can find him hiding in the shop HERE probably in the back office. Coloured with my Markers and kept CAS with some Dp to frame the image.I am sure we know someone that this image reminds you of.


Janet - here is my card for this challenge. I've also used Dr Digi Image Dunderton Decorators Ltd. I've coloured him with Polychromo pencils and decorated it with some tool charms. He's got Magic paint, so it says on the tin, when you paint your wall it comes out patterned.


Just fabulous as always!
