It may be the first of April, but this is no joke, Craftin Desert Divas is having a coloring challenge. Over on the CDD Facebook Gallery, a fun new coloring challenge has begun. There is even a free digi if you promise to enter the challenge. All you have to do is drop your colored design into the folder and you will be eligible to win a $20 CDD gift certificate.
I got the new digi, Hello Little One, a little early, but you can get it now using the code baby to get it for free (but hurry because this deal ends 4/9/17).
I printed the digi out very large because lets be honest, it is a coloring challenge, and I pulled out my copics to color it in. I have never been the biggest pastel baby color fan, so I colored this image in a little grungy, because that’s what I really like. I also tried to make it for either a baby boy or baby girl, thus the pacifiers being colored with both blue and pink. The colors I used are below, listed lightest to darkest for the blending groups.
Giraffe fur: YR21, YR24, and YR27
Giraffe nose, feet, horns: Y21, Y23, YG91 (weird I know but it works), and Y28
Giraffe Spots: E08, E07, and E09
Blue in Pacifier: B32, B34, and B37
Pink in Pacifier: RV21, RV13, and RV14
Wood ground: E35, E55, E57 and E59
Back Wall: W00, W1, W3 and W5
I also used my favorite white gel pen, my Gelly Roll Pen to add highlights to the eyes, the pacifier and to highlight the sentiment that comes with the digi.
I can not wait to see how you color up this image. And have fun, cause lets be honest…that’s why we color!!!!
