#40 Lantern/Candlelight

JLJDesigns November 11, 2011 5

 Our sponsor this week is Make It Crafty.   The prize this week is a $20 store credit!


Our challenge this week is to color an image lit by lantern or candlelight.  You can check out the DT’s challenge projects 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.



We’re welcoming back our guest designer from the last challenge, Aj.  Here’s Aj’s fabulous card for this week’s challenge.

We’re also welcoming Jennifer this week.  A little bit about Jennifer:

1.When did you start crafting and what made you start?  I have been artistic as long as I can remember but I started teaching card and scrapbooking in 1996 and have been hooked ever since.  I owned and online store since 2004 but a couple years ago closed it down to pursue my love of creating and have been teaching Copic classes and retreats for about 2 years now.  To color is my obsession, to teach is my passion!  
2.What’s your favourite colouring medium?  I love all mediums but have put my heart and soul into Copic Markers.
3. Where do you craft? In bed, kitchen table, craft room and on the floor when everything else is covered with my projects.
4.What is your favourite MIC image/s?  I really love the mushrooms from MIC  they are so whimsical and dreamy.
5.Do you have a favourite type/style of card that you like to make?  I love to color, layer and pop my cards as much as possible.  Single layers are very difficult for me to maintain.  I just want to add one more thing!

Here’s Jennifer’s fabulous card for this week’s challenge:



I think the first tip is to search for some pictures that show candlelight or lantern light.  You might want to start with the DT pictures in the gallery.  Marianne Walker has a great post on how to think about the light from a candle.

All entries should be submitted by Wednesday, November 23rd 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!
