Day 6 ~ The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello, Friends! The coloring challenge is well underway and you all have been creating some very beautiful artwork! I was commenting on the Facebook group today and boy oh boy! there were so many pretty submissions. I even had a few from little kids! That's always fun to see. I love it when the "Littles" join in. I hope you are having a relaxing time with the challenge. Remember, just 5 or 10 minutes a day is all you need. Color a little or color a lot. This is YOUR challenge, do it the way you see fit. Need to skip a day? NO PROBLEM! Need to skip a week? NO PROBLEM! Just jump in when you can. Okay? Okay.

My coloring for today, is another simple one. This is for the inside of a card. The digi set I used is no longer available, so I'll not even share the name of it. If you've been following my blog for a while you may remember that I played along with the monthly challenges hosted by From The Heart Stamps. Well, the owner/illustrator, Faith Skrdla was diagnosed with brain cancer a while back and she lost her fight almost a year ago. No more pain, no more suffering so for that we are truly grateful. She was an awesome illustrator and a really nice human being. She will be missed in the design world. I loved her PigWits digis the best and that is what I colored today.

This little cutie is printed onto smooth white card stock and colored with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. The camera doesn't show it but, the cherries are shiny and the icing on the cupcakes has a bit of sparkle. I love this guy! Look at that hair on his chinny chin chin. LoL! Faith had quite a sense of humor and it shows up in many of her designs.

That's it for me today. Time for a little rest. Take care. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time.

Blessings~

Oh Barb, what a loss. I don't think I even knew that about Faith. I'm so sorry for her family. What a legacy to leave though. Her images and love for illustrating will continue. Thank you for sharing. This image is darling and you've colored it wonderfully. Great shading. Makes me smile, for sure. Thanks for the encouragement regarding the challenge, too. Great reminder to just do what you can. Hope you are feeling a bit better. Hugs!
