Card Cafe Thursday featuring the The Daily Marker!

Card Cafe Thursday featuring the The Daily Marker!


Good morning SCT friends! Our good friend Kathy from The Daily Marker is hosting her fourth coloring challenge called, “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge.” It’s a super fun challenge without any limitations, rules, and a great way to get full use of your supplies.  It is proven that coloring can lower your blood pressure so Kathy challenges you to color everyday just for five minutes.  You will be encouraged along the way to stretch your creativity a little bit more. Kathy’s goal is for you to just coloring again without the pressure of making a card. There are a few weeks left so you still have time to jump right in!

We thought we would share a few of the cards Kathy has shared from the followers of this challenge:


Sandy Boone




Leslie Miller

Kathy also shares some fun tips along they way. Here is a Before and After showing how to enhance your coloring book illustrations (or stamped images) by adding white pencil accents.

    Kathy is such an inspirational and amazing woman!! I have started using a few techniques that I wasn’t brave enough to attempt until Kathy inspired me to give them a try!!! I love her color challenges and try to participate every day!
    Seeing what everyone is creating is awesome!! I have met some amazing crafters through the challenges and I owe it all to Kathy!! TFS!

    The white highlights on the petals really make the flower stand out. Haven’t coloured since I was a child – her work is certainly inspiring.
