The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 1

Hi, there!  I am really stepping out on faith in my crafting and coloring by participating in Kathy R's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I registered for her last challenge, but ended up not participating at all.  This time I'm determined to play along.  Yesterday, March 1, was the first day.  I started my coloring late last night, and got it posted sometime after 10 pm.  By that time, I was too tired to post here so I'm doing so today.  Here it is:

This little guy is a Hampton Arts stamp that I got on clearance at Michael's after Christmas.  It comes with a matching die, but the doggone die does not fit the stamp - why that is, I do not know.  Definitely poor quality control, but I like the stamp so, it is what it is.  I used Spectrum Noir markers.

OMG, for some reason, I had a really hard time coloring this little penguin.  Maybe it was because it was so late and my eyes were very tired.  I really prefer working in natural daylight, but that didn't happen.  It's apparent that it's not well done, but I posted it anyway because I did my best at the time.  I fully intend to give it another try later.  I'll be back to show a different coloring effort later today. Wish me luck in my efforts - please!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. There is nothing wrong with your coloring Sheila! I love this little guy and the way you colored him. Good for you for participating in the 30 day coloring challenge! I want to too sometime in the future. My SN's are dried out and I need to get refills for them. I guess I should just do it one at a time here and there as it will be an expensive venture! Hugs, Brenda

  2. You would do a fabulous job in this challenge, Brenda. I think maybe some of my SNs need refills soon. I will definitely be getting them one or two at a time, just as you intend to. They are really all I use for coloring. I'm terrible with pencils. I'm trying some water coloring, but need a lot of practice doing that. Your sweet comments mean a lot to me. Thanks!

  3. So adorable! Thank you for participating in the 7th - 30 day coloring challenge!


I really appreciate your taking the time to leave a comment!
