Make it Colourful - speed colouring

Hey there everyone ... how did you like our last challenge over at Make it colourful.....?
Well we have another challenge for you this month and that is....

Speed colouring...!

Wow I did struggle with this one ... but it is totally do-able.... Zoe does like to challenge her DT girls as well as everyone :)
I knew I wouldn't be able to colour quick enough with markers or ball point pens, so I opted for pastel pencils and a paper stump...

Here is what I did
I used kraft coloured card stock to print onto and Koh-i-noor pastel pencils and a paper stump.
I did use up all of the 15 mins, it could do with some more detail on it but not bad for the time allowance...

I hope you are going to join in the challenge again , you guys rocked the last one.
Thank you for stopping by

Cafe Paris.....Sil vous plait

Hi guys... how are you..?  fancy a cafe au lait in Paris..... 

today again I havehad a go at something different... I used the Paris Sidewalk cafe scene from Make it Crafty , and used just back ink and a calligraphy drawing nib to colour with.

I know it's not brilliant, but for my first attempt I think it's okay, with a bit more  practise I could get used to this technique...I just need to learn to control the water flow more and  how creating different shades with just one colour.....I love to play with different media...♥

hope you have been able to join in with the current challenge over on Make it Colourful.... Here

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek
See you again very soon

Make it Crafty - two tone Monochromatic challenge

Hi guys how are you....Today we have a new challenge over at Make it Colourful for you...This one is another one a little bit different...


This challenge was inspired by the amazing works of Jason Siew. When I saw this image below I just knew we had to try it! It has been a fun challenge and the team although shaking in their booties did a fabulous job experimenting with this idea.
Essentially it is just like colouring a monochrome image but I want you to choose ‘TWO’ colours and blend them towards one another.
Remember to use a Make it Crafty image and upload your projects to the MiC store gallery
  Here is the inspirational image the design team used..


Here is what  I have done...
Cute seahorse
Kay Louis - Cute Seahorse 


Hula Girl

All the challenge details are on the Mic blog page
I hope to see you having a go at the challenge... I'm going to have another go because I think I can do better I am not entirely happy with what I have done..

Thank you so much for stopping by
Seeyou again very soon
