30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 22

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.

We don't have many days left to the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  It's hard to believe how far we've come!

Thanks for visiting!

30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 21

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!

30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 20

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.

30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 19

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!

30 Coloring Challenge Day 18


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.

30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 17

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?

30 Day Coloring Challenge Day 16

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.

Card stock:  Recollections 110 lb white
Designer Paper:  My stash
Inks:  Distress Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive; Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies:  My stash (happy birthday) & Fawn Lawn Stitched Rectangles
Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh

In addition to posting at the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I also entering some others.
