30-Day Coloring Challenge Part 2: Day 6 & 7

challenge_graphic-June-650Hello Everyone! So here I am on day 8 while others are doing day 10. I decided on Friday that I would change the rules a bit to accomodate my crazy June schedule. I will not be posting my coloring challenge posts on the weekends. I will only do it on the week days. Since weekends are for my family, this will work out better. I refuse to feel bad for changing the rules a bit. So my end date will be beyond June 30th.

I did color Monday but it was for my ATC swap and I can’t reveal all here so you will have to trust me.


Yesterday I did color up these cute elephants. I plan to use them on a magnetic bookmarkers.  I used my Copics to color them.  It’s good practice for me working with grays to create shading.


I will be back later with something I color today and that will be day 8.

Happy coloring!


30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 7 & 8 – Botanical Notes

Hello Everyone! I’m back with my day 7 and 8 of the coloring challenge. I had every intention of fitting in at least 5 minutes yesterday to color and truth be told, it didn’t happen. I just had a really full day of appointments and then we went as a family yesterday afternoon to go pick out Apollo’s new glasses. By the time we got home, ate dinner, picked out clothes for the next day, I fell into bed.

day7aThis is all I got done yesterday – just stamped the image.  This stamp is called Botanical Notes by Penny Black. I have had it longer than I would like to tell and just broke the seal to try it out.  I see so many possibilities with it and can’t wait to try them with this stamp. It’s a good size stamp too.

day8Tonight I was determined to get back on the bus and color. Sometimes when I fall off, I don’t return for a long while but having a challenge with others and posting them on the blog and my Instagram, helps to keep me on track.

I would like to play more with the butterflies coloring. I definitely will be using this stamp more. This challenge is not only helping me commit to improving my craft but also to open all the stamps I have been hoarding for some time now.  Very excited for the possibilities.

Good night!
