Got Color?

Hey everyone!

As promised, I am back today with a FABULOUS challenge and I can't wait to see how YOU get colorful! As you may know, Copic week is going on RIGHT NOW at DieCuts R Us and we are having a blast talking about coloring this week!

We have some FUN surprises today too! There is a PRIZE for this week's challenge! That's right! In order to celebrate the joys of coloring, ONE lucky winner will be chosen via Random.org to win THEIR CHOICE of an Anya or Ian single stamp from The Greeting Farm! The regular winner and "Top three" will also be chosen and all the winning info will be posted on Sunday....so good luck to ALL who enter! HOW exciting is that?!

What's more? Well, you'll notice today that all the Challenge cards done by our DCRU DT are using a BRAND NEW DIGI-STAMP. You may remember the preview of a new stamp on Claudia's blog, and that stamp will be available SOON! As if that isn't exciting enough, Claudia plans to have a contest to NAME this cute stamp...so stay tuned! I'm so excited-Who HASN'T been wanting a stamp of a woman carrying scrapbooks and stamping supplies?!? I KNOW I have! I think this new stamp resonates with all of our hearts and we are SO excited to be previewing it today! Here's a little sneak of what's to come:

How's that for the cuteness?!?!? With that said...ON to the challenge!

This week, we are challenging you to GET COLORFUL! Whether it be pencils, markers, watercolor crayons, paints, pastels...or the Copic Markers that we talked about yesterday, we want you to give it your best shot and "get colorful!"

All the participants cards are amazing this week!

Great challenge, and for me it was a challenge. I colored my image and assembled it onto a card with nothing else... no distractions... no embellishments... totally naked and totally different for me.
