Week 18 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Jan's Digital Stamps

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 Jan's Digital 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.  We are on the look-out for participants to join us for three month Guest Designer positions - if this interests you, please add GD after your name on your entry.  Good luck!

Ruth:  I've used Wine Friends - the sentiment came with the set. I've used Promarkers to colour and found some random papers in my stash that were oddments from another project and thought they would work well with it all.  I've also added a little wine glass charm from my stash.

Hello.  This is Kym here.  It is not my Team's week this week but when I saw the images from the ever so talented Jan from "Jan's Digi Stamps" I just had to play along this week.  For my card I have used the main image from "Beach Friends" along with the sentiment.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and used chalks for the sky.  The backing papers are from the nautical collection by Crafter's Companion.  I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, pearls and die-cut shells and netting.

Hello! Kathy here sharing a gate-fold card that features a beautiful image and sentiment from Jan’s Digi Stamps named “Country Flowers.” The lovely bouquet reminds me of my sweet Mother, as her flower gardens were a bright shout of color every season. Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen bring the flowers to life. A square doily, sheer ribbon and little cross-stitch butterfly provide a vintage feeling. I extended the vintage look to the inside of the card by embellishing the sentiment with a strip of the doily. 

Hello, Silke here. For my card I used the digi Botanical Orchids from the sponsor Jan`s Digi Stamp. A tendril pattern was stamped on a card and then green distressed with a sponge. Two stems and leaves were cut out of green cardstock and attached to the card. Two orchid flowers were coloured with Copics, cut out and placed on the card. Finally the card was decorated with pink rhinestones and the sentiment was added.

Hello everyone.. This is Billie A.   I am using the image called birthday friends. You get quite a few sentiments and some images in the group.  I colored the image with copics. I used a speckle stencil and Ranger ink to give marks on the background and give a wall texture look. I went over different parts of the images with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. The sentiment came with the image.  These ladies are sure having some fun.. You can see more on my card by clicking on my name. 

Hi! It's Hanna here with an explosion box to show you today. I have used Tea Time Stamp Set by Jan's Digi Stamps for my Explosion Box. I coloured the lovely images with Distress Inks. The sentiments are also from the Tea Time stamp set. The patterned papers are from the Rose Field Collection by 13 @rts. I inked the edges with some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and decorated the box with some flowers and pearls. 

Good morning ~ Pam here to show you my selected image and project card from Jan's Digi Stamp Shop.  I love her Botanical Orchids and put together my Copic colored card that could be used for Mother's Day or any special day.  I was overwhelmed with all the sentiments that come with this image!  What an awesome collection to add to your digital stamp collection! 

Hi, Lou here to share with you my creation using an image from Jan's Digi Stamp Shop. I was taken by the Boy Climbing Tree image and one of the sentiments as it reminded me of my "little boy" who has turned 11 this week. I have coloured the image with my Copics. I kept the card pretty simple and CAS and adhered the image and sentiment to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions. Further details can be found on my blog post. As you can see here, Jan's Digi Stamp Shop has some lovely images for every occasion.

Hello Margaret here I have used the black and white digi stamp from Jan's Digital stamp set Toyland Bear 674J which I have coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.  Sentiment from the same set.  With this set you receive black and white and coloured images plus 4 sentiments

Jackie using the wonderful image from Jan's digis called Early Spring Nest. I happily coloured away with my pencils. I die cut into an oval shape, mage a BG with compatible coloured Dp. A bow completes the card.  You can see more here.  Happy Spring everyone!

Just fabulous as always!
