Deep Red Christmas Carolers – The 30-Day Coloring Challenge
I’m back!!! Yes, I’ve been really working hard trying to get some new stamps off to the plate maker and participating in Inktober on Instagram, which I managed to do every single day. And I’ve been dealing with some health issues, so I just haven’t been posting, even though I have a bunch of cards made, including this one made with Deep Red Christmas Carolers.
This month, I’m going to try to participate in Kathy Racoosin’s 30-Day Coloring Challenge at the Daily Marker. I’ll be showing what I’m coloring every day on Instagram and then posting the cards I make here and there when they are done.
I did this image on the first day. I had bought a bunch of Deep Red stamps on Scrapbook.com, and I thought this small image would be a good place to start.
GOJUS! I colored this image with Copic markers. After I got it colored, I tried to come up with a background, and I didn’t really have anything I liked. So I hopped in the car and drove to the scrapbook store to buy The Music & Advert background stamps from the new Tim Holtz/Stamper’s Anonymous 2018 Christmas collection. And of course, I had to buy, cough, other things too.
Originally when I started coloring this I assumed this was a day scene, but then I realized that they were carrying torches. So I added a night sky, and it really popped.
This greeting is from a new set from Scrapbook.com called Holly Jolly Sentiments. I die cut it with the Sentiment Labels set from Simon Says Stamp and popped it up on top of some punched pieces with the Tim Holtz Juniper punch. The background was stamped on Neenah Solar White and brushed some of Wendy Vecchi’s Cornflower Blendable Ink using my Lifechanging Brushes from Picket Fence Studios.
I really love how this turned out, and I hope you do too. I have some great stuff in store for you, including Ellen Hutson’s new release debuting tomorrow, and my new feature, Mitten State Mondays, where I will feature a new card using one of my stamps every Monday!

Buying through these links costs you nothing extra but gives me a small percentage of the purchase price, which helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
