May Colouring Challenge in DLD Fan Group

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
A Little Bit Of Colouring


Over in the Dragons Lair Designs Fan Group on Facebook different activities take place. One of these activities is a colouring challenge where those who want to take part are given a digital stamp to colour and use in a project. This project must be photographed and the photo uploaded to the group. Failure to upload a photo means you can not have the next free image to work with.

For May the image group members can request for free in the group is this one.

Just join the DLD Fan Group on Facebook to get the image and join in.

I decided to make a random card with her. By random I mean that after colouring I cut her out in a random shape, cut a few other bits of backing paper in random shapes, and threw a handful of paper flowers in the air and stuck them on randomly where they landed – except for the ones that actually landed on the topper.

The digi stamp was coloured using ProMarkers – Sandstone, Vanilla, Tawny Owl, Raw Sienna, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Praline, Tequila Sunrise, Warm Gray 1.

The peice of green background I used as a mat behind the coloured in digi stamp, as well as the blue piece are both printouts from the DLD Essential Plains digital downloads. I love the fact that there is a slight graduation in colour depth accross these backgrounds rather than them being a flat colour and have used them on so many different projects since I got them.

The other two bits of backgrounds I used were from my stash – bits left from a Hunkydory make I think. The flowers were punched using two different punches from three shades of yellow from the Hunkydory pad of different shades of yellow paper.  I used the same Praline marker as I’d used on the digi to put centeres to all the flowers and a wighly libe around the outside of the 8″ square card I’d used.

Here’s the finished card.

Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.) (Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts.
