LSC77 - Color My World
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! :o That's right... no embellishments. :o Second (and optional), try and make your card in 45 minutes or less.

Possible Coloring Tools

Watercolor Wonder crayons
colored pencils
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)
Stamps: any
Ink: black
Cardstock: any
Embellishments: none

BLACK ink only for stamping. If you're using colored ink, it should only be for coloring the image. Thanks! :-D




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!

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!)

Happy Friday, All!!

PenelopePitstop 08-17-2006 08:36 PM

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!!!!

cjf&cjfsmommy 08-17-2006 08:39 PM

Good one Jen and I'm game, hv the markers and watercolor pencils but coloring is my 'challenge'!!

seewah 08-17-2006 08:39 PM

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.

1prince2princesses 08-17-2006 08:43 PM

Great Challenge, will be hard as all of my cards always have ribbon!

Will have to do in the morning, gotta go to bed.

bensarmom 08-17-2006 09:01 PM

Great challenge Jen...........it will have to wait for tomorrow after the vet and a cup or two of coffee. I do however have my WWC and can't wait to color!

kysmom 08-17-2006 09:03 PM

Oh boy, this is not an easy one for me Jen... I love to embellish. I will try, maybe... :)

loislane125 08-17-2006 09:04 PM

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. :)

loislane125 08-17-2006 09:05 PM

Quick question. How are the crayons compared to the markers and a blender pen?

CardFanatic 08-17-2006 09:17 PM

I prefer WWC over colored pencils. I use markers for coloring once in awhile. It depends on the look I'm trying to achieve.

kysmom 08-17-2006 09:36 PM

Thanks Jen, now I can play!!!

McStamper 08-17-2006 09:37 PM

I may try this again tomorrow, but I figured if I was going to sleep at all tonight I couldn't let this challenge wait. I'd be thinking about it all night.
So here's my quick card.

Pinky 08-17-2006 09:54 PM

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:


Thanks Jen for hosting this...

Inky Button 08-17-2006 10:16 PM

Woo Hoo! Great Challenge, I'm off to play. Just have to tuck DH into bed first. I'll be back!


Mona Lisa 08-17-2006 10:31 PM

rhondag 08-17-2006 11:27 PM

You all may not like that I used naturals ivory on paper with a white bkgd-sorry if so.....I also need a new blade on the ole paper trimmer before VSN tonight!

Treat yourself!


mrikitty 08-17-2006 11:35 PM

mmm, thinking!! no wwc, but there's always chalk and a blender, or my prismas!

jazzytobi 08-18-2006 01:14 AM

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!!

mrikitty 08-18-2006 01:55 AM

Jen, are we limited to blender pen only or can we use watercolor brushes or aqua pens with the crayons and/or reinkers?

luvsstampinup 08-18-2006 03:10 AM

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....

Gated Tu-Tu Terrific:

BadSherry 08-18-2006 04:09 AM

This is a fun one Jen -- hope to have some time today, and like Kittie, I to am wondering can we use a brush with the WWC and/or reinkers. Not a blender pen type of gal!

DawnL 08-18-2006 04:39 AM

figures you'd pick one of my favorite things to do when I don't have time to do it! :cry:
have lots in my gallery.....will play another day... the samples so far are great!

imastampin 08-18-2006 04:45 AM

Tough challenge, Jen. I wanted to use a background stamp with a colored ink so badly - but I didn't!

Clownmom 08-18-2006 05:06 AM

I am so ready for a challenge -- haven't been able to do one all week. I'll have to wait until after work -- but will make it a pre-VSN challenge. Love my prisma pencils!

Vicky Gould 08-18-2006 05:10 AM

NO EMBELLISHMENTS????? OK, I did it, but it's back to the drawing board for embellishments now. Fun, challenge, Jen - always fun to get outta that box! Thanks for posting.

Frogs Have it Made

Thanks for looking - and, leave a comment for someone else today!

Cynthia Wilson 08-18-2006 05:34 AM

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.

notimetostamp 08-18-2006 05:40 AM

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!


Stampinsilvia 08-18-2006 05:41 AM

Here is my card! I really like Roxi's sketch this week so I DID it again! I wanted to start making some fall cards, since fall is just around the corner!

Autumn Card

Jerri Kay 08-18-2006 05:47 AM

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?

NANCYRUTH 08-18-2006 05:53 AM

here is my challenge!
It was fun! Thanks alot! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=42694
