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!

Hello. This is Kym here. For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Sweet Pal". I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, used chalks for the background and added a Wink of Stella clear pen for a sparkly sun.  The backing papers are from Trimcraft.  I have finished the card off with some white organza ribbon (underneath the lace), bright orange lace, LOTV digital stamp (which I have coloured with my Honeycomb Promarker), three orange flowers, Prima butterfly, gems and embroidery threads added to the die-cut tags.


Hi, I am Jolanda and I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Sweet Pal". I coloured the image with Copics and then used a die to make a nice square. Then I adhered it on a piece of designpaper which was matted on a double square card.
