October signals another 30-Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker. Yes, for thirty days we are challenged to color something, even for 10 minutes, every day, for thirty days. I haven't been doing a lot of stamping lately because I am reorganizing my stamps... maybe that is part of the reason the stress level seems to be rising. So I look at this coloring challenge as needed therapy.
The Cardologists got together Thursday to make a fall/Halloween card and we used one of my new stamps, the Stacey Yacula Studio "Ginger" from Purple Onion. For Day 1 of the coloring challenge, I used watercolors that I keep in my carry kit. I colored two of the raccoons to fussy cut, so I could pop up the scarf and tail. I ended up popping up the eyes to look like a mask and the pumpkin too.
The background paper is a gorgeous gold and black piece from Recollections Midnight Magic pad. I didn't think it needed an embellishment, but I may add a gold banner with a vertical sentiment before I send it.
I am going to enter the following challenges as well:
The Card Concept #40 Forest Friends inspired by clean and layered, and the raccoon
Virginia's View #19 Color It where the color challenge is on
The Male Room Challenge #20 Autumn where they are also celebrating my favorite season
Hoping to be back soon with a card made from the snippet I colored yesterday! And as soon as the other Cardologists have finished their cards and send me pictures I hope to share them with you too as we all went in completely different directions with the stamp.
Have a wonderful day.
