Week 14 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik

  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 Ching-Chou Kuik



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.


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!


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


Ruth:  I've used the lovely Purple Balloon digi, coloured with Promarkers and then lots of fine glitter on the balloon (I use glossy accents so it stays stuck!)  Papers are from my stash and I've used remnants from previous projects so you can't see the joins!  Half pearls are from my stash



Hello.. It's Billie A here.. If you click on my name it will take you to this card on my blog.
I am using the image called Purple Balloon from Ching-Chou Kuik. I colored her with copics and added her to some Quick Quote / Basic Grey designer paper. I added some Pretty pink posh jewels and the Snarky Tim Holtz sentiment.


Hi friends - it's Michele! I am also using Purple Balloon from Ching-Chou Kuik and colored her with Copics. I started with the dress because I knew I wanted to do this rainbow dress... I don't have many yellow Copics but I was determined to make it work. I colored the ENTIRE image and did the eyes last...and that's where it went so wrong. :( Big ole white pen bloop. I tried adding a black dot but nothing was working, but I still wanted to share the image with you - maybe you'll find some inspiration in the coloring!


Hi there, Margo here and I have used Summer Goddess by our fabulous sponsor this week Ching-Chou Kuik I have coloured her with my Copic Markers, I loved colouring her so much, look at all that lovely curly hair ! I decided she should be the main focus of my card so made it CAS with only colouring and some doodling around the edges (always scary when everything is coloured).


 Hi Ladies and Gentlemen, Its Sally here, and I love colouring images and thoroughly enjoyed my time here as a guest designer. Here is my lovely image called Purple Balloon by Ching Chou Kuik, which is available on Etsy.  I have just made a birthday card  this time using Spectrum Noir Tri Blends to colour her. The backing papers from my crafty stash and a Oval scallop die. I finished her off with a wink of stella all over her dress, balloon and headband.  Hope you like it.


Hi Dawn here with my Ching-Chou Kuik Summer Goddess card, she's gorgeous! To do her justice Summer Goddess needed to be quite large so you can see all the details in her hair. I coloured her with copics, added stickles to her wings and the berries, then liquid pearls to the flower centres and her dress!  


Hello - it's Helen here with my card for this week's challenge.  I used the very pretty 'Purple Balloon' digi stamp available here.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added a stamped sentiment and some pearls to keep the card simple with the focus on the image.


Just fabulous as always!

I stamped the Reverse Confetti sentiment and added with some foam dots. If you click on my name it will take you to my blog and this card.


 Hi! Vic here with my card, using an image from Rachel Vass designs, called Sketchy Rose cups. Its so sweet and comes with a variation of sentiments to use with the image. I coloured this with my promarkers and alcohol pens, and added a pink petticoat paper behind. I dry embossed the edges of the image and added a few punched butterflies and die cut corners. I drew on the little hearts, on the sentiment, myself. 



This is Elizabeth from Warm Harted and I am showcasing a lovely image and sentiment from Rachel Vass Designs. It is called "Sketchy Rose Tea Cups." I framed the image in a pretty ornate die cut frame and then tucked in the sentiment. I used washi tape on the sides and bottom. I added pearls, ribbon and a bow. Finally, I added two hat pins to complete the card.



Hello Crafters! Marjeta here! It is time for new Challenge at Colour Crazy. We have a great sponsor - Rachel Vass Designs. I used Summer Border Slimline hand drawn digital stamp from her collection.

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


Ruth:  I've coloured with Promarkers this fab image - Monday Morning Frazzled Fran Needs Her Coffee.  I've used various papers - the coffee bean one is from a 6x6 stack from the Poundshop and the others are oddments I found in my stash.  Buttons also from my stash.  I merged the sentiment onto the cup in a graphics programme.


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Big Eye Girl With Attitude Dont Mess With Beany.  from our fabulous sponsor Oddball!! I coloured with pencils. I used a fab embossing folder for the BG. Then added a few Nuvo drops.  You can see more details HERE.



Hello. This is Kym here. For my card I have used the Oddball Art digital stamp called "Monday Mornings Frazzled Fran Needs her Coffee Image No 154". I laughed when I saw one of the sentiments and I had to use this image and sentiment "don't even talk to me til I've had my coffee!" as this is certainly me EVERY morning!!  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and the backing is done with Pan Pastels. Around the edge I have used a brown Versafine Clair ink pad with a coffee ring stamp to add a bit more detail to to the background.  The papers are from The Works and K&Co.  I have finished the card off with a LOTV digital sentiment, raffia ribbon and a circle die-cut border.


Hello.. Billie A here with my card using this fun sassy Big eye girl. I colored her with copics. I added her to an embossed background piece of card stock then onto a pink piece of Amy Tangerine dp. I added the twine and a Doodlebug heart.   


Hello, Donna here featuring the fun Monday Morning digi stamp set.  This stamp set comes with 3 sentiments and I chose to use it for my project because I am one of "those" people...I need my first Cuppa before any morning Conversation can take place :)  More details on my blog here.


Hello it Louise here using this great image from Oddball art is called 'Monday..' and I have used this before its such a good image. I love this image, as it reminds me of how a lot of us feel before our coffee or tea in a morning! This great image from Oddball art is called 'Monday..' and I have used this before its such a good image.  I did have a bit of a disaster with my colouring though. Believe it or not this image was coloured with promarkers, I used the Letraset paper pad to print the image on but didn't realise there is a back and a front to the paper, and printed it on the back with out realising, so when I went to colour in with my promarkers/letraset pens it looked like crayons! I thought what's going on here then turned over the paper and tried on the back and was fine, so lesson to be learned if you want to make them look like crayons/pencils colour on the back of the Letraset paper.  You can view my blog here.


Hi everyone. Friday again!! I had a fabulous time colouring Frazzled Fran . She was a joy to colour with my Promarkers.




Just fabulous as always!

Ruth:  I've used the lovely Tea Cup Stack digi and coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are Dovecraft - Tea Time which I've had for years.  I've layered the image onto a vellum die cut and also used a brad and paper flowers from the same paper set.


Hi Everyone, Sally Bee here, this is my challenge for March. I chose the image from Scribbles Design and decided that I would do a few scribbles on them as they looked a little plain just coloured in. I coloured them with Triblend markers and added a couple of die cut doily's and cardstock from my crafty stash. I wanted it to have a cafe feel.  I decided to put it on a 8x8 canvas. I think it would look good on any kitchen or cafe wall.



Hello... I am Billie A. I used the image called Stacked Tea cups.. But I added coffee to my cups vs. tea. I colored with copics. I used Spectrum Noir sparkle brush on the top coffee in the cup. I stamped the Tech. Tues. sentiment on a Stampin up heart. I added to some DCWV dp.. If you click on my name it will take you to my blog to see more on this card and other creations.



Hello! Kathy here sharing a birthday card that features a digi image from Scribbles Designs named Badger. Since lots of these critters live in my state, I used a picture postcard from Northern Wisconsin as my background. The sentiment, also from Scribbles Designs, is named Eat Cake. (I'll have mine with ice cream on the side, please!) 


Hi there, Margo here and for my card this week I have coloured Tea Cup Stack from our fabulous sponsor Scribbles Designs  I have coloured the cups with my marker and decides to do a floral pattern. 
Used some paper from my stash and an old Spellbinder die and  some flowers. 


Hello everyone and happy Friday!  This is Helen sharing my card for today's challenge.  I have used the 'Badger' image from Scribbles Designs which is available here.  I coloured the image with my Promarkers using various shades of grey.  I added some patterned paper and a stamped sentiment to finish my card.


Hi everyone Dawn here, with Scribbles Designs Badger trying my hand at a slim card. I created a scene by merging the badger with his flipped slightly larger image coloured with copic markers. I drew in the grassy hilly background, added clouds, then textured the background with crackle embossing folder  sponged with a light gold/brown ink. The trees are a die cut by Studio light.
