30 Day Coloring Challenge: Hello Autumn!

Howdy all!  TGIF!  Today marks the beginning of an early Thanksgiving weekend for us Canadians so I am thrilled to have my son home today (a Friday off school!) and we’re just chillin’ together today.

Today the Bloom Brigade and I are joining Kathy Racoosin, from the Daily Marker, for her inspiring 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  And I have to tell you, I just LOVE to colour!  I can find any excuse, especially not doing my housework, in order to colour at my desk.  My favourite colouring medium is Copic Markers so that’s what I chose to use on my card to share with you today.

For my Autumn inspired card I used the fabulous Power Poppy stamp sets, “Sunny Harvest”, Big Scripts” and “Go Wild” and I had a ball using my Copic Airbrush System and markers to colour it up!

I also gold heat embossed my focal sentiment and added lots of shimmer with my Wink of Stella and Sakura Glaze pens too!

So the CHALLENGE IS... to find a fabulous colouring medium, a fun image to colour and have some FUN!  Colour something up and share it RIGHT HERE to have a chance at not only winning some Power Poppy goodness but other prizes too!  Kathy is challenging us to colour anything so there is no need to share a completed card either... just share what you've coloured!  Don't forget to share it social media... and use the hashtag... #thedailymarker30day3

You can also combine this challenge with a few other fun challenges to win even MORE Power Poppy prizes!  Why not combine it with our monthly challenge, the "Bits & Pieces" challenge OR our awesome World Card Making Day sketch challenge right HERE OR why not create for a cause and play along with the Splitcoaststamper's "Hope You Can Cling To" month long challenge extravaganza! So many opportunities to play... even more chances to win!  Good luck everyone!!!

Now… check out what the rest of the extremely talented Bloom Brigade designers have in store for you...

Beautiful! I'm so glad to see my favorite Illustrater (Marcella) take part in Kathy's Daily Marker Color Challenge! It's a perfect marriage don't you think? This copic coloring divine, my favorite medium as well! Have a lovely weekend!

Oh, Ally, this is gorgeous, and I love how you've colored these amazing Chinese Lanterns! And do I love your air brushing! I so want to use mine, but I keep putting it off. But I think you've really inspired me. And the embossed "hello" is so elegant and really adds so much to this card along with the gilded edges...stunning, my friend! Totally! Hugs!
