Hi everyone! Welcome to MarkerPop Coloring Challenge #9!
Samantha here, & our new challenge is going to be super fun. I hope that you have as much fun with this one as we did! The design team is sharing all projects using Washi tape to go along with our challenge (but you DO NOT have to include washi tape on your projects). If you have never heard of washi tape, let me tell you a little bit about this fun embellishment. Washi tape is a japanese rice paper. It is semi-translucent & it comes in tons of gorgeous colors/patterns. You can use it as faux ribbon, pleats, borders, masking tape, faux lace, etc. It is just such a fun, neat product to use on your projects. If you have a tip or a fun way to use washi tape, please leave us a comment and tell us about it! We would love to hear about how you use it.
THE CHALLENGE: Paper Piecing + Shading
Do some paper piecing on your colored project! But wait, don’t paper piece the whole thing, also do some shading with your favorite markers from the MarkerPop store. We’re showcasing some washi tape this week, but you DO NOT have to use Washi tape like we did –as long as you paper piece & color something, it counts! You may play along with other challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (7 or more challenges) will result in disqualification for our amazing prize. As always, have fun creating!
THE PRIZE: Three rolls of Washi Tape of winner’s Choice!
One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize. Three additional entries will be chosen for the Top 3 based on their amazing coloring skills. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see! Entries are due on Sunday, October 28th at noon EST.
We are continuing our comments contest as well. Leave a comment on one or more blog posts between now and when our challenge winners are announced for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate!
Here’s what the team came up with this week:
Melissa used the Bright Bean stamp from the Greeting farm to do some shading and paper piecing. Notice how she used the washi tape to make some cute banners on her project:
Marie used a Magnolia image called Wizard Tilda and paper pieced her outfit. Marie made some grassy pleats with her washi tape.
For my project, I used this cute little bride from the I DO stamp set from The Greeting Farm & paper pieced her gown and veil. I used my washi tape to create some decorative borders.
Hopefully we gave you some ideas on how you can do some paper piecing and shading. Now it’s your turn to show us what you can do! I hope you will play along with our fun challenge this week! Add a direct link to your project below:
