Welcome to "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" Blog Hop.  Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker wants to share her love of coloring with you and we are so excited to be a part of it. Today Kathy has assembled a blog hop to give your creativity a jump start with some of her favorite stamp companies & Online Card Class partners.


The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. (However feel free to  jump in or out as time permits). Any coloring medium is welcomed. Click here to find out where to share what you are coloring and join the encouraging community of happy colorists PLUS answers to other questions you may have.



To start at the beginning of the hop go to The Daily Marker.  If you are coming from the blog of  Altenew you are in the right place. Kathy has the full blog hop list if you encounter a broken link.

For today's hop I stamped and colored the gorgeous flower image from our new Mimosas Stamp Set and some of my favorite Copic markers.  I die cut the image and popped it up onto a Double Pierced Square die cut.  After stamping and embossing the thank you sentiment from our Sip Sip Hooray stamp set and tying on some Aquamarine Twine the card was complete.  I really enjoyed this challenge!



Now head on over to the next company on the hop - W-Plus 9



GIVEAWAYS: 

We are happy to give a $50 Avery Elle gift certificate to one random commenter on this blog post telling us what your favorite type of image to color is (people, flowers, animals, graphic designs, etc)! You have until Midnight EST March 9th to comment. We will announce the winner here on this blog on Friday March 10th.

During the hop you will also find lots of other giveaways along the way.  The full list of ALL  winners from the individual blogs will be announced on The Daily Marker blog Sunday March 12th.

THE GOAL IS:  To color something daily even if it's a few minutes but, certainly not required.

This card is superb! The florals look so delicate in the muted colours and (yes, I know they are mimosas but...) they remind me so much of apple blossom. Love the treatment in the flower centres too.
My all-time favourite thing to colour has to be a flower as they have so much possibility for shading that no two ever look alike.
