Ok for day twenty three of the 30 day coloring challenge, I had to cheat, just a little. For our business, we needed some thank you cards to be used while we are traveling. They are to be given to our partner to use. This is one of our prep tasks that I'd been dragging my feet on for some time and the time has come that we are leaving so I needed to buckle down and get them done. I opted for...

On day twenty two of the 30 day coloring challenge I worked on a card I'd started but then set aside to finish with superfine nib Copics I'd ordered. By the time my new Copics had arrived, I'd lost the card somewhere and just recently found it buried in one of my in process cases. So, I used the new SF nibs on the mice and brushes. I also evened out the red and blue. I've posted the original...

Here I am at day twenty one of the 30 day coloring challenge. I broke out my old colored pencils as well as this stamped image. I'd colored it last year, but it was pretty blase so it sat in my unfinished box all year. I finally made myself sit down and get to going deeper into the shadowing and added depth. I also used a colorless blender to do blending in the shadowed areas. I haven't yet...

I have made it to day twenty of the 30 day color challenge! I started this project a day ahead, but it really didn't take too long to finish. It was one big image. This image was given to me at the Copic coloring class I took. I got quite a few extras to color. I thoroughly enjoyed that weekend. I've never colored so long in one day before or after that weekend.

After coloring the main...

Day nineteen of the 30 day coloring challenge found me not feeling quite up to snuff. I did not have alot of fime as we are now doing our final cleanup and prep for travel. I brought out my distress inks and with a variety of stencils I quickly created a stenciled floral scene. I then added some texture with texture paste. I then stamped a set of words from JOFY, cut them out, chose my phrase...

Day eighteen of the 30 day color challenge is now complete. I actually got alot done today. In the AM we sold our last "extra" vehicle which was holding us back from embarking on our slow travel journeys. After we finished that transaction (so very stressful to sell big things!) I went to my mom's to craft and DH stayed home. Now that we are down to one vehicle for the first time in our lives...

Day seventeen of the 30 day coloring challenge was... well, challenging. We listed my husband's Jeep and within an hour had a bunch of responses so we had to scramble to get it really ready to show. By 8pm we were heading home with a cash deposit. WHEW, what a day. So I got home and resumed coloring this stamped up basic Christmas card I'd started. I used Distress inks to color it. I was so...

Day sixteen of the 30 day coloring challenge went well for me. I had my Stampscapes stamps out to finish labeling them. I write the name and ID in fine sharpie on the rubber of the stamp itself. It helps me keep track of exactly which stamps I own. Today while labeling I decided to pick out my least used and least favorite focal stamp to see if today, with my copics, I could do more with it. I...

I had a lovely day fifteen of the 30 day coloring challenge. I took the opportunity to pull out ALL of my stampscapes stamps to show my mom. We each made our own scene. She is out of her black ink so I let her create her scene using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and I tried one using Memento London Fog ink. It did not come out too bad. I chose a daytime scene to go along with the lighter...

Day fourteen of the 30 day coloring challenge is upon us and after running some errands I finally had time to work on today's project. I used 140 lb coldpress Watercolor paper. I watercolored the background freehand using some old watercolors I've had well, forever. This will be an oversized card. I will mount and mat it on a 5 x 7 base. 

I die cut Hello and Sunshine as well as Gina...
