The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop


Welcome to Day 2 of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" Blog Hop!  You should be arriving from the blog of Honey Bee Stamps or if you are just joining us you can start at the beginning of the hop at The Daily Marker.  

Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker has created this wonderful 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.

Kathy encouraged us today to try and mix in other companies products besides our own into our creations today and I completely embraced that idea.  As a one-woman show I frequently don't find the time to use all the other wonderful stamps that I continue to buy from my favorite companies.  I had fun trying to squeeze a number of different stamps from my stash on my two card examples today.  I think the different companies play nicely together, don't you?  ;)

Before I go I thought I would share an exclusive sneak peek of what I started coloring yesterday as part of the 30-day coloring challenge.  I frequently play along, but I often can't share because it's something not yet released.  These images are from five of our seven new stamps sets coming out in mid-April for our summer release.  ;)

Those stamps totally speak to us!
