Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 27 April 2018

 Good morning.  

It is time for another challenge over at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog.

The topic this week is "anything goes".

PLEASE NOTE:  We are a colouring challenge and therefore to take part in the challenge you MUST have coloured something on your card/creation.

The sponsor for this weeks' challenge is Ching-Chou Kuik and the winner will receive two digital images of their choice from her Etsy Store.
 For my card I have decided to make a Christmas card to try and keep my supply of cards being made throughout the year rather than just last minute!!  I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Holly Fairy" and I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and inked the edges with a green Versa Magic ink pad.

The backing papers are scraps from my stash.  I have used various Christmas stamps that came with a magazine last year to add a bit of interest underneath the image.

As this card will have to be posted I have had to keep the embellishments to a minimum so I have stamped a sentiment on the backing papers and just added some Papermania Glitterations for a little bit of sparkle.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin/fairy wings - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Burnt Sienna, Cocoa and Cinnamon 
Holly leaves/berries - Leaf Green, Bright Green, Forest Green, Poppy and Berry Red 
Dress - Yellow and Lemon
Sky - Pastel Blue.

Oh Kym, your colouring on this image is fantastic! Her skin has such wonderful detail. Great idea to keep your Christmas card making up to date throughout the year. Another great idea to use various stamps behind the image. A super card! Thanks for sharing it with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!

Magnificent coloring on that beautiful image, Kym! I love that you're doing Christmas cards. I have yet to start on mine but maybe I'll get inspired by this one.

The papers you chose for this are so pretty. The accent piece behind the image adds visual interest. The glitter embellishments are a great finishing touch.
