Day 2 Coloring Challenge

image …we’ll this is MY day 2 Coloring Challenge as I probably will not make 30 separate posts over the challenge! At any rate, I did color in the flowers a bit this morning – using my Stampin’ Up! Stamp pads, a bit of water and a very small paint brush.  I like to layer and combine colors, so these flowers were done with FIVE different colors!





I like this so far… now to the stems.

Have you taken up the coloring challenge yet?

30 Day Coloring Challenge!

I just Love Sandy Allnock!  I’ve taken a class with her (at The Queen’s Ink), and she is fun and so great with her color lessons.  I have all the Copic Sketch Markers (!) and just can’t get enough coloring with them.  Sandy’s blog is on my everyday list and she has inspired me to go in directions that I would never have thought of (and to drool over several watercolor products that I hope someday to afford, because, like the Copics, I have to have ALL the colors!).  This week Sandy talked about the 30-Day Coloring Challenge on Kathy Racoosin’s blog THE DAILY MARKER.  Who doesn’t like to color? (I say…)  So I got started this am, not very far, I admit, but it’s a START!

First I stamped and fussy cut THIS imageColoring Challenge1a from the Helping Me Grow brand new stamp set in the new Occasions Catty.  Then I stamped it again on my favorite paper (Shimmery White), placed the cut-out on top and spritzed with a couple different Smooch Spritz’s.  Clearly I was not worried about keeping the underneath image pristine, because I will be coloring and layering colors on top and often the serendipity of my “sloppiness” will actually enhancColoring Challenge1be the final image.  This coloring challenge is all about going out of your “safe” coloring zone and using OTHER coloring products in your stash.

So what will day 2 bring?  I have some ideas already! – Stay tuned!
