Week 50 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Polkadoodles


Welcome to the Colour Crazy Challenge!
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 Polkadoodles

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!

This is our last challenge for 2021 to give our wonderful Design Team a little break - join us again on 7 January when our first challenge of 2022 goes live!

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week. Sadly we are saying goodbye to two of our team - Silke and Janet.  Thank you both for all your lovely creations over the years and we will miss you!

Ruth:  I've used Frosty Snowman Hugs and used Promarkers to colour.  Papers are very old printed ones from my stash that I'm trying to use up!

Hello, it's Maryann Scrap GD. I chose this adorable image of "Bella Bear with lots of Parcels" from our sponsor Polkadoodles, which I colored with my markers and it inspired me the holiday season, hence this beautiful paper of Xmas. And who says Christmas, says snowflakes and poinsettia! For more details, do not hesitate to consult my blog.

Hi there, Margo here and today I'm showing you a card with the cute Snowmen Frosty Hugs from our fabulous sponsor Polkadoodles. Did you know they have a superfun and easy to follow Youtube tutorial on colouring the cute snowmen? You can find it here, they have lot's of colouring tutorials if you are in need of some inspiration. 

Hello! Kathy here sharing my DT card that features a sweet digi from Polkadoodles  named Bella Bear with Lots of Parcels. I printed the on white cardstock and used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen to add color, shading and highlights. I fussy-cut the image, then adhered it to an upcycled calendar photo. The snowdrifts were created with simple torn paper, and snowflakes were added to the background with a white gel pen. The final touch was to add a bit of texture with Polar White Flower Soft. 

Hello it's GDT Sarah, These I made, here with my card for this week's challenge.  I'm using Snowmen Frosty Hugs Too Cute from our fabulous sponsor Polkadoodles.  To make my card I printed the image onto Copic friendly paper, added a sentiment, and then coloured with my Copics.  I also added a turn of bakers of twine, mounted the image onto a red card matt and onto my card blank.  I also thought it might nice to show what's thought of as Christmas associated images don't just have to be for Christmas, so I made a winter birthday card.

Hello it's Helen here with my card for the challenge.  I used the very cute 'Bella Bear With Lots of Parcels/Gifts' coloured with my Promarkers,  I kept my layout nice and simple and added a stamped sentiment.

Hi Dawn here with my Polkadoodles Snowmen Frosty Hugs card, these two are so adorable! I coloured them with copic markers, and framed them in two colours, love how it turned out! I cut out the birds and popped them up and added stickles to the background. The inside of the card says "From Our House to Yours, Merry Christmas!"

Just fabulous as always!
