Week 31 - Anything goes Craft Colouring challenge

Welcome back to another 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!

Our challenge today is
