May Kiddos Challenge

It’s time for another kiddos challenge at Make it Colourful and you just have to check out what the Junior Colour Addicts did this month! The theme is dots and is sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps – that’s me and I’ve even provided a freebie for all the kids to use!

Here’s what Cassandra has made for you this week:


She paired up The Ivy Swing from Make it Crafty and Butterfly Kisses from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils and the dot theme was incorportated in with her background using varoius circle punches.

Here’s what Lydia has made for you this week:


She made a card for her pen pal and was inspired by last month’s circus theme. She used three images from Imaginisce Snag ’em Stamps: Animal Crackers Elephant, Monkey and Koala. They were colored using Primsacolor Pencils and she created her own “dot” embellishment too!


Aren’t those darling? Be sure to head on over to Make it Colourful challenge blog for details on your free image and let your junior enthusiasts come play with us! Creations using a Little Miss Muffet Stamp are also eligable to enter in the Little Miss Muffet Challenges too!

Circus Tent

This week at Make it Colourful the challenge theme is to color bright colors and I couldn’t resist using the new Make it Crafty Carnival images!


The sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps so I added a few Meljen’s images for a grand parade. I added lots of embellishments too and of course used my favorite paper from last week! The tent banner was first inspired by one of my teamies who came up with a more creative name… that’s just a teaser so head on over to the Make it Colourful challenge blog to see which one. ;D


Here’s the Circus Tent background before it was mounted on the card. The sky was created with the Copic airgun and I used three of the BG colors to spray it (BG11, Bg72 and BG75). The angle of the airflow was a bit awkward and not what I’m used to. Plus I wasn’t able to adjust the airflow with the single can setup so I’ll have to work at my technique.

Did you know? Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley (February 9, 1865 – December 23, 1931), born in Jericho, Vermont, United States is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimed. Bentley poetically described snowflakes as “tiny miracles of beauty” and snow crystals as “ice flowers.” He captured over 5,000 images of crystals in his lifetime.
