WK 38 Anything Goes Craft Challenge Candy giveaway

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog.

Our weekly challenge is always anything goes.

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.

This week we are letting the team use whichever image they like.

Although we are using different images from different companies we have some goodies to give away to this weeks winner.  Some of it is from the very generous Nikky from Polkadoodles!
The winner will be chosen by Ramdom.org as always, so you are all in with a chance of winning this fab prize.

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.

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

Ruth:  I've used L'il' Miss Mermaid from Polkadoodles and coloured her with Promarkers and the background with watercolour pencils.  I've cut her out with a circular Spellbinders die and then added half pearls and beads from my stash along with some gem flowers that I found.
Meg: Hi! This is my first post as a member of the Colour Crazy DT, and I'm so happy to be here! I've chosen to share with you Three Little Autumn Girls from All Dressed Up. I colored up my girl with Copic markers, and now she is ready for fall! I kept my embellishments super-simple to a couple of die-cut leaves and ribbon from my stash.
 
Hester: I made a gingerbread train silhouette file with the Baked with love collection from Polkadoodles. Coloured them with Copics  

Jane S - I am loving my Halloween makes at the moment and have used this fabulous image from Lemon Shortbread called Skull Balloon! I have coloured her in a ghoulish style with markers and pencils.

Julia I sneaked into this weeks challenge as the images are just soooo gorgeous .. I have used Snow White Chibi I have coloured her up using my Copic Markers and I have added the background using distress inks and water splashes, full details on my blog.

Sharon
I love to use ribbon on my cards, and sometimes the tiniest accent is just enough! For my card to day I have used only 6 inches of 5mm ribbon but it is just enough to give that little lift! Thank s to Crafty Ribbons for sponsoring us this week.

Jane
Whenever I have ever used ribbons  they were in my daughters hair.  But this week for our Sponsor Crafty Ribbons I am using them on his notebook assembly using Helga Big Kahuna collection from Polkadoodles.  Details and more pictures on my blog.

 Claire C

I have to confess that I'm a bit of a ribbon addict and have loads of goodies from our lovely sponsor Crafty Ribbons. I've used some lovely pale blue organza ribbon on this card with  supercute image from the Polkadoodles Winnie Winterland collection and lots of Polkadoodles die cuts

I coloured Frosty  up with my sparkle pen and Graph'it Markers. Some times less is more. I just love finishing off snowy cards with baby blue ribbon x Thanks Crafty Ribbons for being our sponsors this week!

The Colour Crazy team are looking for new design team members to join our friendly team. So if you love to colour we would love to hear from you and see your work. You can use whatever colouring medium you like, we are not tied to one medium or one brand. So if you use Graph’It Markers, Copics, Polychromos, Lyra or any other brand out there we want to hear from you. We are looking for people at all different levels of their colouring journey, as we not only want to inspire those that already colour, but to inspire people who have never coloured before to take it up. So whether you are an accomplished colourer or a beginner we would love to hear from you.


The Role

1. Create a minimum of one project per month, more if you wish, using various sponsor images, and participate in our blog challenge, including commenting on entrants posts on a rota system.
2. Share your makes on all social media platforms including our sponsors pages.
3. Help out with questions and queries on our social media platforms and blog.
4. The role will be for 3 months to begin with, in the hopes of it becoming permanent.
So what do you need to do if you are interested.

2. Send a link to your blog, which must be active, and any social media links you have.
3. Send pictures of three of your favourite colouring pieces you have done.
We are looking for more than one person so don’t be put off applying.
