Hi, Crafty Friends! Greetings from me and my little sock monkey friend. I had this digi image for years and do not know where I got it. I apologize for not saving it properly with the name and/or artist. I think it's adorable and colored it for a little girl.
I did a small amount of coloring for Day 21 of the 30 Day Color Challenge. These are images from Fawn Lawn's Baked with Love set. I think I've had this set about 2 years. This is my first time inking any of the delightful stamps. Again, these small images presented a bit of a problem for me. But I like how they turned out, although I had to color the mixer twice before I got it to my liking.
I think this images are so cute and fun. I look forward to making a card with them. Enjoy your day!
Another day, another colored image - it's Day 20! This time I completed a card for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I love to line dance so this is a favorite image of mine by Robert Jackson. It's called Doing the Wobble. The image actually depicts a number of ladies dancing, but I fussy cut the dancer in front since I had made a card with the entire group previously. This card will go to a line dance friend for her birthday.
I'm going to enter this card in a few other challenges also.
This 30 Day Coloring Challenge is amazing. I'm checking in with Day 19! I colored an image using a Rubber Necker stamp I've had for years. I bought it at a stamp show because I really liked it. But then I realized I should color it. I was intimated so never used it. I decided to it was about time to step up and break out my Spectrum Noirs.
I think she is so pretty! I would love to wear an outfit like that on a summer day. But no matter how hot it is, I don't do sleeveless any more - LOL!
It's Saturday, and time for Day 18 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. These little fish images are from a Recollections set I purchased many years ago and, you know what's coming: I never used it before. I'm finding smaller images are difficult for me to color because they are small. But these fish will make a cute card after I fussy cut them and design a scene.
I wasn't as successful at shading as I wanted to be, but overall I'm satisfied. And I'll just keep on keeping on.
I have another card today for my entry for Day 17 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I colored a birthday cupcake for my niece, my nephew's wife. This card is late, but it will get to her soon, I promise. The cupcake is a Cricut cut from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge with coordinating stamp. In addition to coloring the cupcake with my Spectrum Noirs, I inked through a stencil to create the background panel. I added a sentiment and side border in addition to putting some WOS on the frosting to complete the card.
The days coloring just fly by, I tell you. Have you been able to enter and play along with Kathy R and the rest of us?

Welcome to Day 16 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I needed a birthday card for a friend so I decided to do some more loose water coloring of the Cling Cyclamen stamp by Stampendous. I used Distress Inks again, but pinks this time. (I previously colored this image in red for Day 11 here.) So I actually finished a card instead of just coloring the image and saving it for later. I used a stitched die to cut out the panel after water coloring the flowers, mounted it onto some DP and then onto the card base. I added the die cut sentiment and some sequins.
This loose water coloring technique is fun. I definitely found it relaxing and plan to use it more in the future. It gives a nice soft look to images.
