Thirty Day coloring Challenge Day 4, 5 and 6

I really am not very good at posting every day anymore.  I usually do create every day but some things can not be shown.  They are design team work.  I also had a couple of design team posts this week for challenge blogs.

I am attempting to take part in the the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I started late but am trying to do something every day.,  I am not the best colorer unfortunately.  The shading is pretty impossible for me especially in very small spaces which many of my stamps are.

I am working ahead on some of my birthdays also plus making cards for the Collins Home in South Carolina.

Day 4

This is a Penny Black stamp.  It is pretty large stamp so I try to think of different ways of stamping and using the images.  This is a watercolor card.  After I had colored the image with distress inks, distress paints, and watercolor pencils I cut it out with a die.  I took a coordinating die and cut out the center of the image.  I made a card base to match the total image and adhered the outside portion of the colored stamp to the front of the card.  I then took the center and pop dotted it so it adds some dimension to the card.  I left it without a sentiment so I can add one when I need the card.

Day 5

This is the card I made for Day 5.  I need a masculine birthday card for the end of December.  I know the birthday person loves sports.  The stamp is from Whipper Stamper Designs.  It was colored with Copics.  I lightly chalked the image so the background was not so stark white.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I had stamped two images so I made a second card with the same image.  This card will go to the Collins Home in South Carolina.

Day 6

This is a Penny Black stamp that I have had forever.  The image was colored with Copics and the white background lightly chalked with a light blue.  Some Stickles were added to the ornaments.

All these cards could quality for Oldie Moldie Monday because I am using 6 x 6 pads for making the cards.

I am accomplishing some card making by doing this challenge.  I probably am not improving my coloring but I am at least participating.
