The Daily Marker 30 day challenge - Days 8, 9 and 10

I'm trying to do the daily challenge - some colouring every day for the 30 Days of June.... so far not too bad -
so here's Days 8, 9 and 10

Day 8:

A card for a friend who turned 60 on the 9th June.... Using a Bugaboo image coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

Day 9:

This one is for our friend's wife who's birthday is the next day (10th- she is a year younger)  I got some new Altenew stamps this week and used the Rustic Linen background with Old Paper distress ink to make a background.  I then stamped the Starry night stamps and used my Derwent Inktense pencils to watercolour them.  I cut the Happy die on my ScanNCut... a bit smaller than I'd have liked but it looks ok with stamped sentiment.

and Day :

This card is for the challenge at The Flower Challenge #21 - Use a previous challenge.  I chose Challenge #3 - Use an old stamp or die.  The stamp here is a Hero Arts one from 2010.  I used the Derwent Inktense pencils as they were still sitting on my desk.   Add some splatter and pencil does for the background.   Some gold washi tape completed the card.

Have enjoyed the mindfulness of colouring.  It is very therapeutic and relaxing if you just go with the flow and don't get caught up in trying too hard to get it right.

My son and his partner have just arrived to help hubby with some fix up jobs in the garage so it's time for me to go....

take care and take some time to colour this weekend

Lovely cards Dawn, and great colouring. Love your first card, you have coloured him perfectly!
I am missing some days already as I have a stitching project with a deadline, so have been colouring with needle and thread, you could say

Great cards Dawn I particularly love the top one such a great sentiment. I am already missing lots of days on the colouring challenge as I have been away helping with my daughters school trip.

Great job doing some coloring every day! The sentiment on the first card is hilarious! Love it! The coloring of the flowers on the second and third card is gorgeous! The gold washi finishes off the third card beautifully! Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge!
