Wk 16 - P = Peculiar Colouring challenge sponsored by Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils

Welcome back to a new challenge...

Our lovely challenge is here to help inspire you to try out Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils - if you've never tried these amazingly lush pencils then check out all the links at the top of the page to find out more. They are top quality pencils which need minimum blending - if you're a Polychomo/Prisma fan you really need to check them out because we have all switched from those brands because we find Lyra's much faster to work with, easier to blend and superb colours and lightfastness that is superior to most of the others on the market - and they're an amazing price too!

P = PRETTY PECULIAR

Basically we want to see PRETTY OR PECULIAR, whatever you like, it's up to you! It could be pretty papers, a pretty image, peculiar colours - the choice is yours! 
You can enter the challenge with ANY project you like as long as you 
have coloured an image with ANY medium  (pencils, markers, inks, paints, whatever you like).
Remember you can only enter twice!
CLOSING DATE: SAT 9 APRIL AT NOON GMT - WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THE FOLLOWING POST....

This week we are very kindly sponsored by the fabulous Concetta Kilmer from Enchanted Design Studio - we love her whacky images they're fabulous!

This week the Design Team were challenged to use ONE COLOUR (monochrome) so let's see what they came up with...

Nikky...I used this lovely stamp, one of my favourites from the Polkadoodles store here....I stamped it on watercolour card (190gsm) and then just coloured it up, trying to restrict my colours. I normally detest yellow tones but my Lyras are changing my mind!

Colours used: 08, 07, 82, 13, black


Scatty Jan Ohhhhh loved colouring my image this week . I used the sweet image from Polkadoodles from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime . How cute is she!!

Jane – Hi everyone!  Have to admit that orange is not normally my ‘go-to’ colour but the Lyras have the most gorgeous shades in this tone so I just had to use them for my project this week! I have made an easel card using the gorgeous WINNIE HEALTHY EATING who is also available in the fab new collection WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES SPRINGTIME. Such a sweetie!!

  Cara   I used one of my fave collections for this challenge ....Winston bear is perfect for colouring in monochrome, and also perfect for the father's day card I made (i'm trying to get ahead) I used tones of brown/yellow  to give my card a sepia feel.
