You may have noticed I haven't posted any more coloring challenge photos. I was working on a large piece over several days and I was hoping to post a photo of it when I finished it. Then my glasses broke. Actually they quite literally fell apart in my hands. 

The metal weakened and broke in a place that cannot be fixed which leaves me with my rose tinted sunglasses for a week or so while I wait for the replacement to come in. 

While it's fabulous to look at the world through rose colored glasses, you really can't color it with them on. *sigh*

LET'S PARTY ~ ANIMAL PARADE

Here's another image I colored for the challenge. It's a wood block stamp from Penny Black but the only identifying mark on it is the number 4137K. I had to do an online search to find it's name, "Let's Party".  I stamped this on Strathmore Bristol paper with Versa Fine "Onyx Black" ink and colored it in with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Water Brush.


This will soon be made into a card, but I wanted to post a picture of the coloring for the daily challenge. At the end of the challenge, I will post photos of the cards made with these images so you get a chance to see the finished products.

BLESSED ~ BIBLE JOURNALING PAGE

Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing something that I colored over two days of the coloring challenge. I didn't have the heart to post a partially colored picture yesterday, so I waited until today to post it complete. I colored this in my new Bible with Prismacolor pencils.


It's called My Creative Bible and I found it on Amazon. It is filled with beautiful illustrations and Bible verses for you to color in the headers and margins and has a gorgeous wipe clean cover.


I'm including a photo because I love it and want to share it. I am not an affiliate. There are no links and I will not make any money from sharing this with you. I just really like this Bible and thought you might too.


CARD RECIPE:

PLANNING WITH MY MONTHLY HERO

When it comes to planning with planners I've learned two things:
1. If it's pretty, I'm more likely to use it.
2. If I took the time to make it pretty, I WILL use it.


With that in mind, I used the stamps from the July Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts to decorate my planner for next week. I stamped the images with Hero Arts inks and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils.


Then I added some of my Hero Arts Planner stamps. I'll fill in the rest of the calendar this weekend.


SUPPLIES USED:
Stamps: Hero Arts "July Monthly Hero", "Kelly's Food Planner", "Kelly's Work Planner", "Kelly's Occasion Planner"; Sweet Stamp Shop "Plan Work"
Hero Arts Ink: "Forever Green", "Green Hills", "Orange Soda", "Black", "Ombre Dolphin"
Prismacolor Pencils: PC103, PC1025, PC109, PC912, PC1090, PC927, PC1023, PC949
