YCU Challenge #1

I'm so excited that today is the first challenge for Young Crafters Unite! I've been eagerly looking forward to this day :)

The challenge is to color a stamped image on your project:

I very rarely color images on my cards, although recently I've been trying to incorporate it a bit more. I don't own any Copics, so for this challenge I turned to my trusty colored pencils.

I cut around each of the stamped chairs after I colored them in, and added them to the card with foam tape. I love the handwritten look of the sentiment stamp, and it was the perfect size to go underneath the chairs! (I wish I had handwriting good enough to do without a stamp...)

I hope you join us- there is a gift card to Simon Says Stamp up for grabs for the winner!

The DT has done some amazing work, please check them out too:

So what are you waiting for? Head over to Young Crafters Unite for all the details!


  1. Thanks for sharing. I've been looking to do more challenges, and a monthly one with the YCU seems right up my street!!! Love the chairs BTW!

  2. How exciting - their first challenge! And what a good first entry you've made! :) I love that you've used coloured pencils, they get neglected I think :)

    Congratulations again on making the DT - well deserved I'd say :)

    What a bummer, I don't have any stamps that I could colour! Mine are all solid stamps! Hmm, I'll have to have a think about that one!

    Right, off to see what the others have created :)

  3. Nicely colored! You really did a nice job giving them some dimension just in your coloring alone. Lovely little card.

  4. I used colored pencils as well! I have Copics, but I still turn to the trusty Prismacolors often. Your card is clean and simple and gorgeous!

  5. You colored these chairs with colored pencils?! Oh my word, that is ridiculously impressive. I had no idea it was possible to shade that well with them! Such a sweet card, Jennifer!

  6. Very chic and stylish. Love the chairs popped up. x

  7. Just fab Jennifer, love your coloured chairs they really pop off the page in more ways than one! The black card base really sets the whole card off :)

  8. Beautiful! Colored pencils are awesome!

  9. I see why you've stuck to colored pencils; you color so masterfully! I love it. But if you ever want to give Distress Inks a try, I'm your girl. I think you would like them! I love how clean and simple but stunning your card is. The color choice is perfect, too! Thanks for your awesome contribution to our YCU team. :)
