30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 14 – Some Coloring Practice with Copics

logoHello Everyone! I squeezed in some coloring today – Yipee!! Not as much as I would have liked but I like that this challenge doesn’t have a time requirement.


This is a bird that I had from the online copic cardmaker class. So I played around with some funky color combos for these birds.

day14bThe technique I was practicing is called tip-to-tip coloring. It’s when you use two colors that are far away from each other and then take the lightest color and place it on the tip of the darker maker to make a shade that’s in between the two colors making for a nice blend. It’s great for when you have limited colors.

Tomorrow, I have to run the boys on some errands so prepare for another late post tomorrow. I’m just glad to still be at the challenge on day 14.

Happy coloring my friends!


30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 13 Playing catch up!

logoHello Everyone! I had a date weekend with my man and coloring kind of got pushed to the side. My in-laws took the boys on Saturday. So Leao and I spent the day together relaxing and reading (yup, he’s a closet bookworm!) and then we ordered Japanese food from my favorite Japanese restaurant and picked it up for dinner and a movie at home. It was perfect because the weather was -9 degrees!

dinerandmovieI love how they include a live flower in the meal. So pretty even for take-out they make the effort.


So you see, coloring wasn’t going to work. So what I will do is extend my coloring for the challenge to make up for the two days I missed.

This is also school vacation week so I have to be clever to squeeze in time to color. Today I used some digis from Mayzy Art. A great designer who is sadly closing her shop. I have had fun coloring up her images and really sad to lose the talent.

day13eThis one will be perfect for a ‘get well’ card. I love the cute little bunny and slippers. day13dI used some of my current favorite color combos for this one.

This next image I knew I had to have for my new ‘breast cancer and cancer cards’.


I have to go back with my gold Wink of Stella to color over her armlet and earrings.

day13cWell it’s late and I need to get these boys in the shower. I just wanted to make sure I posted my coloring for today. See you tomorrow!

Happy coloring!
