30 Day Coloring Challenge


Hi there, I decided to try and partake in The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge once again with Kathy Racoosin, and to get out my neglected Copics and practice again.  I am coming into this challenge this time around with more realistically expectations, and am going to see how well I do. After all, It’s the first day of Summer Vacation for me, and I now have the time to do it, or at least no excuses not to try.  I have also hooked up with my friend Michele over at I card Everyone and we are going to encourage one another to do as many as we can.  We had a great conversation this morning by phone and she is just as sweet as I imagined she would be.

I first decided to find a color challenge to help determine what I was going to color, and I went right to the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog and found this great color palette.  I must say, my purple might not qualify as it looks rather pink in the photo, but I had fun just the same. I decided it get out my all time favorite MFT stamp set: PI- Fun in the Sun. Since Copics and I have a love hate relationship, I finished up the shading on my image with some Prisma colored pencils.  Next, I got out some of my new Washi Tape that I picked up at Michaels last weekend and made this fun background.  My inspiration for this card was found here.

I used my MFT-Wonky Rectangles to cut out my backdrop and sentiment and added some colorful enamel dots and I was done.

If you love to color, why not join me in this challenge!  I have the site linked up for you!  Take care, Nanc’

  1. Love your darling card. I think your coloring looks great and you will do just fine. Have a great summer vacation and hope to see you soon. ((hugs))

  2. So cute! I love the little girl on her floatie. Perfect colors for a fun summer card! Thanks for joining us at Stamp Ink Paper, hope to see you again soon!

  3. I keep thinking I’m going to do the 30 day challenge too, Nancy, and then things get in the way, which is crazy since I color almost every day anyway. Your Copic coloring looks great on that little sun-bathing girl and you’re not the only one who sometimes uses pencils for shading and details. Oh not me. I don’t even have Copics but I’ve read it somewhere.

  4. Eek! So cute, and I just bought this stamp set, too! I bet you can guess which challenge I had in mind… Hope you are having a great weekend, Nancy!

  5. Absolutely adorable, love the image you’ve used and the colours. Perfect for this week’s challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. Thanks so much for joining us. Carolyn xx
