The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge Week 3

Welcome to the weekend! Hope you had a good week.

I’ll admit I struggled with coloring this past weekend. I was in card making mode with a vengeance, and most of my images were previously colored, due to the challenge. But I did get some coloring in. 

Day 16 

Day 17

I colored the mushroom on this card. Then I felt guilty about just coloring a mushroom. Also, I needed the sheep image on the card below to have red accents, and the only one I had that was already colored was green. So I colored the little guy on the next card.

Day 18

These are some of my favorite stamps, and one of the first sets I purchased. This is Hot Stuff from Clearly Besotted. Aren’t they adorable? I got these out to color to celebrate finally finding the matching dies. I used Copic markers to color them.

Day 19

A co-worker asked me to make a mushy card for her husband’s birthday. I know, this doesn’t look very “mushy.” My co-worker just started making cards herself, but she couldn’t make her husband’ card as he sees what she’s crafting. So, she picked this still from cards I’ve previously made and I put it together. Then, I brought some stamps in to work with me to finish it off. It is a shaker card, and the heart die is from Your Next Stamps. The love sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps’ Kristina’s Love.

Day 20

These little guys in the second picture are from a new set called Rain or Shine. This set was a collaboration with Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamps for Stamptember. I’ll have a blog post soon featuring cards I made with this set. They are fun to color with Copic markers.

Day 21

This is something I have been meaning to try for awhile. It’s called No Line coloring. It’s where you stamp an image in a very light color ink, and then color in the image, with your coloring covering up the ink stamp lines. It results in a softer, more hand drawn look. It’s a lot of fun but I think I will try a floral image next. For this attempt I used a little guy from Mama Elephant’s Wooly Winter stamped in Grout Gray ink from MFT. I colored him with Copic markers.

Day 22

This set of stamps is from Mommy Lhey and is called Love in Full Bloom. This set was a free gift with purchase from Simon Says Stamps. They are adorable and I colored them with Copics.

Day 23

Today my coloring involved blending ink. 

I blended Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink across masked kraft cardstock. Then I sprayed the ink with water and blotted. Then I sprayed with Shimmer spray. I owe this design to Jennifer McGuire. She released a video this morning that totally inspired these cards! I had to figure out something to do with all those images I colored. I ended up making 5 cards with this technique.

Whew! That was quite a week! I am really enjoying coloring, but I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all of these colored images. I ordered some Prismacolor pencils so at least I’ll be able try something new!

Thanks for stopping by!
