You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
This is a 2 in 1 challenge to get us geared up for VSN! First, you can only use black ink because we are focusing on coloring. Coloring tools are your only accessories! That's right... no embellishments. Second (and optional), try and make your card in 45 minutes or less.
Possible Coloring Tools
Watercolor Wonder crayons
blender pen with ink pad*
blender pen with reinkers*
*You may use the ink for coloring purposes, just not to stamp images.*
Please put LSC77 in the keyword box when you upload!
Limit: accessories (coloring tools)
BLACK ink only for stamping. If you're using colored ink, it should only be for coloring the image. Thanks!
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

you ARE gonna make me buy them, aren't you, Dawn!!!?
Thanks, Jen! Sounds interesting, and surely a challenge!!!
I hope to have time to play tomorrow BEFORE VSN..... I WILL have time for VSN! Just might have too much to do before hand!! (to assure I CAN have the 'me' time the rest of the weekend!)
Location: Dancing while watching the Corny Collin's Show
no embellishments?!?!? Huh??? you would have to throw in the only black ink too so that I can't use my stamps that look like ribbon or ric-rak unless I want them to be in black ....Oh, I see a loop hole watercolor crayons to the rescue!!!!
Wow, tough challenge, Jen! Can't wait to try tomorrow.
I hope lots of you will use the WWC on your projects ... I have had mine for several months now and have not used them once. Can't wait to see some great cards!
Wow! I love mine. Sometimes I color with them on the paper and then use a blender pen. But usually, I use the blender pen directly on the crayon before coloring. Some people have colored directly on the stamp, spritzed with water and then stamped.
Sounds like fun. I'll whip something up tomorrow. I don't have the WWC either, but I have the markers and the pencils. The Crayons are on my wish list. It's just that my list is so long I don't know when I will get around to getting them. After this challenge, probably soon.

Jen, I cannot believe that I made a card before morning! I had to do one before going to bed...will do another one tomorrow. This was my first time using reinkers w/the blender pen. I think I like watercolors and prisma pencils better. Here is my card:
Hmm... I KNOW i've made cards before without embellishments and I've coloured everything by hand, but for some reason when I CAN'T use anything else it drives me mad!!!! hahaha.. anyway.. thanx jen for the challenge.. was definately a challenge. Off to bed!!
Well Jen, I realized I had one I did late last night for a swap this weekend...it may have a tiny, tiny, piece of gingham ribbon on it...but it could easily be removed...so I'm asking you to pretend it isn't there! It really isn't....
Thanks for the challenge. I have been enjoying the challenges this week but have too many things on my plate preparing for school to start and my only child to start college. This is just what I needed to do today. Here is my card. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=21520
Here's my attempt -- super simple card. I have a question, Jen. Is using punches considered an embellishment? I played it safe and did nothing, but sure wanted to use a punch!!! Here's my link -- fun challenge again!
Great Challenge Jen! Kittie and Sherry, she says in her opening challenge that coloring tools are our only accessories. I'm going to include a watercolor brush as a coloring tool accessory. Is that cheating Jen?
