Pinkies Colouring Challenge

This week I am sharing some entries to our team challenge to create a project using colouring.

Pinkies Team Design Challenge with Michelle Last

There are so many ways to colour in paper crafting and I am sure that you will be inspired by all the projects shared below to pick up your own colouring tools and get crafting!

Before I reveal what my team made and give you a chance to vote for your favourite I wanted to share my colouring project…

Forever evergreen stampin Up

I had wonderful fun colouring in these baubles.  I really am a novice at colouring but when you use watercolour paper its really easy.  I stamped the baubles in versamark and embossed in silver embossing powder.  I then was able to use my aqua painter to colour the baubles and add shading by going over the same patch of the bauble.  As watercolour paper is super absorbent its means you can colour repeatedly over the same spot to create the shading or graduation of colour.

I wanted the baubles to pop off the background so I added a smoky slate background using a dauber.  I then stamped the tree branches from Christmas Pines in two colours of ink.

I then threaded the silver metallic thread from the top of the bauble to the branch so they look like they are really hanging from the tree.

I added the Noel sentiment and embossed that too.  I then stamped, coloured and cut out two more baubles which I added to the inside with another sentiment.


So my wonderful team members have also been colouring and have entered their projects into a challenge and I would love you to vote for your 3 favourite projects.
