#35 Challenge – Black and Orange

JLJDesigns September 17, 2011 2

Thank you to all who participated in our Make It Purple challenge.  We love looking at your cards in the new gallery.  Our sponsor this week is Make It Crafty.  Zoe is offering the winner a $10 store credit!


It’s time to get ready for Halloween!  Zoe has some great new Halloween digis at Make It Crafty.  This week our challenge is to color with black and orange.  Your card should feature black and orange prominently, but does not need to be only black and orange.  The MIC DT have made some great cards in the gallery.  Be sure to leave them some love!


All entries using a Make it Crafty image will go into the extra draw for a chance to win two single MiC digi stamps!  This prize does not include collections.


The biggest trick for me when I first started coloring with Copics was that you don’t actually use black to color something black.  The Cool Grey family will give let you color something black and still give you the depth that you get with other color families.  Amy has two tutorial videos on coloring a Halloween image that you may find helpful – Pumpkin patch and Witchin’ Style.  Zoe has a great video on coloring black hair.

If you love pencils, you may find this video tutorial on coloring black hair helpful.


All entries should be submitted by Saturday the 24th September midday QLD Australia time.  All entries must be posted in the gallery to be eligible for prizes and Top Three.  Entries can be submitted up until you can no longer see the gallery available!  At this time the gallery is hidden so the team can place their votes for the top 3!

If you have trouble uploading your photo, reduce the size of your image to 800px wide or high.  If you are unsure how to do this, uploading your photo to your blog and then saving it again from your blog will automatically resize the image for you.  You may find these directions helpful:  http://www.4shared.com/document/8oDMazGe/upload_to_gallery.html

If you’re still having problems, please contact us so we can help.

This is a colouring challenge. You don’t need to make a full card/project.  You can submit a coloured image ONLY!  You can use ANY colouring medium – markers, pencils, paints, finger paint and even electronic computer colouring!  YOU MUST have coloured the image YOURSELF.


Have fun, experiment and enjoy the challenge!

Happy Colouring!
