The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop

 
Hi Everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" Blog Hop.  We are so excited to have Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker share her love of coloring with you! Today Kathy has assembled a blog hop to give your creativity a jump start with some of the stops that will be on “The Coloring Challenge Road Trip” & her favorite Online Card Classes. (We are in one of her stops!)   

Here I attempted to do a no line coloring on the tree with Copic Markers with the new "A Beary Christmas" stamp set. (9/15 Release) I really struggled but I'm glad I tried! This is what makes this challenge so great! Feel free to go out of your comfort zone and just practice! You may end up loving the end result while gaining some experience!
