November Make it Colourful Challenge

Good morning!  Happy (early) Saturday and 1st of November!  Hope you had fun last night if you were celebrating Halloween and hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm not up yet, but I am hoping for a nice, quiet weekend once I am up.  Right now, I am here because it's time for the new Make it Colourful Challenge.  We've got a fun one for you this month!  The challenge is to color any Make it Crafty Christmas image in 15 minutes or less.  Sounds too easy?  Wait until you try it!  And no cheating!  The DT all set timers and recorded our times.  Some of the more technically-savvy DTs (not me!) even did videos of their speed coloring!  There is lots of inspiration on the Make it Colourful Challenge blog.  So go pick yourself a fun MiC Christmas image, start your stopwatches and color away!

Here is my card, made with the image I colored in less than 15 minutes (14.5 to be exact):


My card base and mats are SU Cherry Cobbler and the patterned papers are from the Teresa Collins Santa's List 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Jolly Santa from Make it Crafty.  I colored him super quickly with my Copics.  I picked this cool dude because the line image already has lots of shading to follow.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A triple-loop seam binding bow and a holiday sparkler finished my quick and easy card to go along with the quick coloring!

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Make it Colourful Challenge and check out the fab projects from the rest of the DT!  You won't believe they've all been colored in less than 15 minutes, but they truly have been.  We hope you will play along this month!

Have a great day and see you soon!

Deck the Halls

Good morning!  Happy Friday and Happy Halloween!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  Not having kids, we don't do much for Halloween, but I'll be looking forward to the weekend after that!  Right now, I am here with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "anything goes" with the option to make it a Christmas theme.  The Christmas part is completely optional.  You can use any coloring medium you'd like, but there must be at least one, hand-colored image on your project.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Gumball Green and the patterned papers are from the Recollections City Sidewalks 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Jinkles Elf from Make it Crafty. Isn't she cute? She is one of the newly-released Christmas digis. They are all so fun! I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics. A dimensional foil sentiment sticker finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge - October/November

Hi again!  As promised I am back with my DT post for this month's Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.  The theme this time is "favorite color combination".  It doesn't get easier than that!  Please remember you must use an image by Elisabeth Bell.  It can be from any company that sells her images.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers in my favorite colors of turquoise, pink and yellow are from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Sun Kissed by Elisabeth Bell from the Little Cottage Cuties collection at Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few roses from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Sketch Saturday #333

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I am just getting started, but it's looking like it will be a nice day, so I am anxious to get away from the computer and enjoy the beautiful weather.  Before that, I am here with my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  This week we are sponsored by Sir Stampalot who is offering the lucky winner a prize package from the store.

 
Here is this week's great sketch designed by Vannessa:

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft Botanical Odyssey 6.5 x 6.5 pad.  The beautiful image is Wheately from Art by Mi Ran.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The colors are quite different for me.  They were inspired by some that Mi Ran herself used to color this image.  I though they worked well with these papers.  Some purple satin ribbon and three flowers from my stash finished my card.
 
Here is a close-up of the colored image:
