Welcome to Day 2 of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" Blog Hop. Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker wants to share her love of coloring with you. Today Kathy has assembled a blog hop to give your creativity a jump start with some of her favorite stamp companies & Online Card Class partners.
The premise of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" is to color something everyday even if it's for five minutes. (However feel free to jump in or out as time permits). Any coloring medium is welcomed. Click here to find out where to share what you are coloring and join the encouraging community of happy colorists PLUS answers to other questions you may have.
To start at the beginning of the hop go to The Daily Marker. If you are coming from the blog of Mommy Lhey you are in the right place. Kathy has the full list if you encounter a broken link.
Here is the card I created for today's hop. I thought it would be fun to color up a card to congratulate Kathy on hosting her 7th "30 Day Coloring Challenge". Do you realize that is 210 days of coloring! Go Kathy!!
I feel like I should also congratulate myself on making this card. It is sad to say but I only make one or two cards a year these days. I can hear you all gasping now. I know, I know. This is a challenge I desperately need in my life. It was fun making this card and I pulled out quite a few coloring mediums that I haven't used in awhile. I really mixed things up with chalks, Prismacolors and Twinkling H2O's. My apologies for the photography on this card because it doesn't capture some of the details which is a shame. I finished it up pretty late and didn't have the proper lighting set up. All the stamps are Purple Onion Designs and were colored with Prismacolors. The grass and sky were colored with chalks. The sky has more of a cloud appearance and isn't as washed out as it looks here. I used Twinkling H2O's on watercolor paper and then cut out the Scripty Congrats from Fawn Lawn. You can't tell but it has a nice shimmer to it.
*Update - Here is another photo of the card I was able to quickly take with some unexpected sunlight today. It still doesn't capture everything but it might give you a little bit better of an idea.
In celebration of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" why don't we have a giveaway! I'd love to see the coloring you do using any of your Purple Onion Designs stamps. It doesn't need to be a finished card or project. You just need to share the coloring you have done during the next week of the challenge. You have until next Thursday, March 9th to share your colored Purple Onion Designs stamps by either sharing them on Instagram, Facebook or linking them in the comments section of this post. Please make sure you link me so I can find your work when posting on social media. You should also be using these two hashtags (especially on Instagram) #TheDailyMarker30Day and #PurpleOnionDesigns. I'll pick two winners one will be at random and the other will be my favorite share. The winners will each get a $25.00 Purple Onion Designs gift certificate.
During the hop you will find lots of additional giveaways along the way. The full list of ALL winners from the individual blogs will be announced on The Daily Marker Sunday March 12th.
