Week 19 Challenge - Digi Colouring

It's Friday and time for another Polkadoodle Challenge! This is my (Ruth) last week for setting the challenges and I hope you've enjoyed them!

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to announce the winners from week 17 - Anything But A Card:

In Third Place: Aquarius
In Second Place: Dolly
And The Winner is: Lisa B

This was a really tough week for the DT to pick our top threes - a lot of entries and some stunning ideas so thank you all for joining in! I'd have picked you all, but sadly we can only pick three! Congratulations to our winners and please contact Nikky for your blinkies.

Don't forget that there is still time to enter challenge 18 - DIY flowers as it is open until noon on Sunday 27 September.

So this week, I have set the Design Team the challenge of:

Digi Colouring

Basically, they could pick any Polly or Jack image from the Polkadoodles range but they had to colour it themselves, using what ever techniques or medium they wanted. Just before this post you will find two tutorials on digi colouring - one using felt tips (yes, remember those?!) and one using watercolour pencils.

I hope the following samples will provide you with plenty of inspiration!

Boni has created a wonderfully pink princess Polly card! The image is from Jingle Jangle Christmas but as you can see, can be adapted to suit any occassion! Backing papers are from Candy Doodles.

Claire has used papers from Candy Doodles and added Polly from Sugar Birdies. She's coloured Polly with copics and a little Sukra stardust. Great way of adding an image to a double fold card!

Enfys has created a spooky but sweet Halloween card using elements from the download - both Polly and Marmalade are from the collection. I do like the drippiness of the frame and how Polly seems to be menacingly glowing!

And here is another spooky Halloween card this time from Kath! A glittery spiders web taken from the Halloween download along with Polly who has been coloured using watercolour pencils and her most favourite brush!

Kerry has used Sugar Birdies papers and Polly is also from the cd. With some subtle embossing and eyelets (I do like eyelets - they are very underated in my opinion) this is a great card.

Now I'm hungry! Kris has coloured Jack with Prismas and OMS with the sentiments being computer generated. Now I do like funny cards and this one made me laugh out loud! Kris has used the Halloween download and also Candy Doodles.

Saskia has created a very cute Christmas card using the elements from Jingle Jangle Christmas - the holly stamps are from the rubber stamp collection. Polly (lets hope she doens't lean too hard on the gift!) is coloured with copics.

I've used the Halloween download for both my samples - a tutorial for each card precedes this post so if you want to know more, scroll down! Polly has been coloured with watercolour pencils and Jack with felt tips. Both cards have a little wobbly eyed fimo spider attached!

Hope you've enjoyed the challenge for this week and we all look forward to seeing your creations! Just simply leave a comment on this post with a direct link to your blog post. You have until Sunday 4 October at 12 noon GMT to enter.

**Edited to add: Any digi image is fine but would love it if a Polkadoodle one was used!

Good luck!
