Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

Our weekly challenge theme is always Anything Goes

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.
Please note, we are a colouring challenge and therefore you must display some colouring on your project - I'm sorry but we don't accept pre-coloured images.

This week we are very kindly sponsored by Lemon Shortbread


Our sponsor is very generously giving the winner of this challenge the prize of 3 single digis from their store.

Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

Also don't forget we are also always looking for people to guest spot on our DT. So if you would like to be considered as a GDT, after your name on your entry add the letters GDT.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.

Ruth:  I've used Beanie Girl and coloured her up with Promarkers and then used papers that I found in my stash - for once I actually picked the papers before I coloured the image!  I had a clear out over Christmas and found lots of printed papers that I'd forgotten I had, so I'm determined to use them up!  The sentiment is an X Cut die and I've added ribbons from my stash.


Marjeta - Hello dear friend!
I would like to show you a gift box that I made for this challenge. I used sponsors (Lemon Shortbread)  digital stamp - Hot Cuppa Girl. I coloured it with Prismacolor penciles:
- face: creme, burnt ochre, goldenrod
- hair: creme, yellow ochre, dark brown
- clothes: pouder blue, electric blue, true blue, lemon yellow, salmon pink
I embellished it with Crafty Ribbons ribbon, texture paste, different dies and lots of flowers.


Hello. This is Kym here. For my card I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Beanie Girl". I coloured the image in with Promarkers. I have gone for a shabby chic style card so all card/papers have been distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and a brown chalk ink pad rubbed along all the distressed edges. I have finished the card off with some ribbon under the lace, die-cut sentiment, banner, greenery, leaves, flower and a brad. The Promarkers I have used are:

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Burnt Sienna, Chestnut and Henna
Dress/boots/hat - Salmon Pink, Antique Pink, Cocoa and Burnt Sienna.

Hi Everyone!  Tammy here!  Just wanted to share my card using the Hot Cuppa Girl from Lemon Shortbread.   I colored her with just some basic markers.  My DP is just some random sheets from swaps that I have received recently and I've paired it with a fun sentiment from My Favorite Things called Cup of Tea.  I also added just a few Nuvo Drops in red to give it a bit of texture.  I hope you like it!



Jill  here....I made a box with Tag. And I colored her with Copic Marker.


Hiya - Vic here!  I'm here to share my card this month, with my lovely image from
 Lemon Shortbread - "fairy flower scent."  I knew this would make a lovely card for my friends little girl, who was is about to turn 3. She was a delight to colour and I popped
her on a diecut stitched shape. I made a little ribbon shaped sentiment
and diecut the number 3 and her name. 
The little penant on the top right hand side is also a diecut. 
The backing paper came from a freebie paper pack. from Pink Petticoat (no longer trading).  I coloured the fairy with my alcohol pens:-
Spectrum noirs: EB3, EB6, EB2, PL3, TN2, JG3.
Promarkers: rose pink, blossom, pastel yellow, canary.


Janet - My card for this challenge is using the Lemon Shortbread called Beanie Girl. I've coloured her with Copic pens. I have used a patterned paper from a old company called Magenta. Then lots of die cut page leaves to decorate.



Željka-Hello!!! For this week I used Beanie Girl from lemon shortbread and I colored the image with my ZIG clean color real brush pens (the colors I used will be listed on my blog).The blue paper is from my stash and yellow one is from Polkadoodles

Ruth:  I've used City of Love image and coloured it with watercolour pencils.  I've layered it onto an off cut of card from my stash and I added a faux running stitch with a black fine liner pen around the edge of the image and card.  Embroidery thread and key charms are from my stash.


Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I’m working in my Strathmore “Toned Tan“ Art Journal (14 x 21,6 cm in size). I used the Oddball image called “City of Love Image no. 379 by Lizzy Love“. I printed the image onto a separate sheet of Strathmore “Toned Tan“ paper, cut the image in a shape that I liked, matted in on dark red card stock and after colouring adhered it in the journal.

I coloured the image using my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils and also my White Caran d‘Ache Luminance pencil. I used the following Polychromos colours: 219, 225, 138, 137, 171, 112, 165, 151, 157, 146, 176 and 283.  You can visit my blog for more details: www.makeyourlifecolourful.com


Hi. It's Sharon here and I have decided to go with a new home theme for my card this time around. I love the sketchy style of this image and it was lovely to colour with my Copics. I have kept everything clean and simple , so that the focus is on the new house in the middle of the street!


Michelle - Morning or Afternoon (Depending on where in the world you are located). I have choose to create an birthday card using a digital stamp by Oddball Art  called Kawaii Creature with Stars. I have colored in this lovely digital stamp during copic markers, and finished of the card with an shaker element to appeal to the birthday girl.


Just fabulous as always ladies.

Hello. This is Kym here. For my card I have used the Bugaboo Stamps image called "If Friends were Flowers". I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and added my Crafter's Companion clear sparkle pens to areas for some sparkle and shine.  The Promarkers I have used are:  Lilac, Lavender, Orchid, Ice Grey 1, Forest Green and Bright Green.


Hi again!! It's me - Vic,  with another challenge - they come around so quickly! I got a totally gorgeous image this time, from Bugaboo - called, "elephant love." It's a perfect image for valentines, which is just around the corner... although this time, I made a congratulations card and thought I could use it for an engagement card. The flowers are paper flowers - from Docrafts, I think. The darkest flower was punched. The sentiment came from Pink Petticoat (no longer trading). The heart paper is from a lawn fawn paper pack, while the roses paper came in a freebie paper pack, with a magazine, quite some time ago!  I inked the edges of everything on this card...sometimes using brown, sometimes pink. The border has been punched, and the butterflies, too.  I used the following alcohol pens: 
SPECTRUM NOIR: J7, J5, J3.
PROMARKERS: cool greys 1, 2 and 3. rose pink, blossom, lime green, vanilla, ruby.


Julia  Hi there .. for this card I have used Elephant Love I have used copic markers to colour:  Elephants: BV25, 23, 31, 11, 20, 0000, RV02, 10 000 Bow & Heart: RV09, 04, 02 Flowers: YR09, 14, 31 Grass & Leaves: YG99, 63, 25, 21 ...

Hi it's Shell here with my second guest designer creation. I have used the fabulous 'Rose Bud Tag' by Bugaboo. I just love the versatility of this image, you can use it as a tag on a present/bag etc or you can use it as a topper on a card as I have below. I have used Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils to colour & distress inks for the shading, I also had a play with gilding flakes for the tag edge & sentiment. You can find further details over on my blog 'The Camels Hump'  


Just fabulous as always ladies.
