Week 2 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello!

I’m back to share the next 7 cards for week 2 of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge!  I have been dedicating myself to coloring a little bit everyday. I’ll admit I don’t have the time to color every day, but when I do, I try to double up so that I can account for missed days.  It’s so nice to have something to look forward to every day – if I’ve colored, I can at least put a card together a feel the joy of completion.  Let’s dive right in to the cards and images I’ve colored:

Day 8:  So Much Cake, So Little Room

Birthday Bear 1

I love this Beary Special Birthday stamp set by My Favorite Things.  These bears are adorable.  I used my favorite color on this card and I may be selfish and never give it away! I added some dots to the cake using a Copic 0 marker – gives it some detail and it’s so pretty!

Day 9:  Sending Hedgehugs

I made a very similar card to this for Splitcoaststampers last spring. Since I’m coloring smaller images, I’m finding that 4 bar-sized cards are perfect!  This Hedgehugs stamp set by Lawn Fawn is very affordable and I think everyone should have it!

Day 10: Just a Little Note

Birdie Note

So coloring little chicks aren’t too exciting – but putting this card together was really fun!  I’ve seen projects with this same chick colored in several different colors and they’re all cute! This Birdie Notes stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh is also a smaller set at a great price point!

Day 11:  Birthday Dogs

Puppy birthday

My friend, Bonnie’s birthday was last week.  I asked her what her favorite color was and what animals/critters she liked.  She said hunter green and dog.  Boy……I had no idea what I wanted to do to put these two elements together!  The gate that you see is a stamp from Hog Heaven by My Favorite things and the dog is from Lunar Animals by Mama Elephant.  I stamped and colored the same dog 3 times and colored them different ways.  I’m no artist when it comes to dogs so forgive me if you don’t think those dogs look good.  I wanted to scrap it several times!  I think it turned out pretty cute though.

Day 12:  Mondo Magnolia

MondoWatercolor

I colored these magnolias using distress ink using watercoloring as my technique.  This Mondo Magnolia stamp set from Ellen Hutson is just STUNNING.  It stamps simple but the wow factor incredible with any coloring medium you choose!

Day 13:  It’s Always More Fun When We’re Together

Farm Frients

When I pre-stamped all these images prior to starting the challenge – my intention was to color ONE image – but I couldn’t just make a card with one farm animal!  This is a new stamp set by My Favorite Things called Farm Friends.  I’ve seen several farm animal sets and this one made me cave – I finally purchased one I really love!

Day 14:  Have a Ball!

Have a Ball 1

This Sweet Smiles stamp set by Lawn Fawn is another great value!  It stamps simple but you can do so many fun things with it!  My 4 year old LOVES gumball machines and when he saw this card, it disappeared from my craftroom.  It’s all bent up and well loved in his bedroom now.

I hope you enjoyed this post!  See you next week for another update!

XOXO,
