Day 1 of The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

I'm sharing a second project today, this colored image for The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin on Instagram.  I've been participating for several years in these fun challenges that are month long events, held several times a year.  It help to stretch those creative coloring skills and there is so much inspiration during these challenges that really get my creative juices going.







This is Stella the Mouse and she was signed by one of my favorite artist/designers, Lindsay Ann Ostrom.  This is one of 12 images in the Sweet Animals Adornit Art Play Paintables collection, that was released just a few months ago.  As a former Adornit "It Girl", I love sharing my love of Adornit and you will find a few affiliate links scattered about, if like me, you have to have this!  I think Stella is simply precious and I've colored her with my Tombow dual brush markers, swiped on an acrylic block, then grabbing the color with my water brush to paint.  Simple and fun.  I've added some chevron stenciling with a DCWV stencil and sponged on some white pigment ink. 


The purple splatters in the background are from a former project where I had spritzed ink onto a large piece of cardstock, and salvaged a piece.  I also created a flag border sentiment with Adornit washi tape used for the sentiment.  Pretty, simple and fun!

I'm also sharing this project at Simon Says Stamp for their Monday Challenge "Based on a Book".  This sweet mouse reminds me so much of the beloved children's book, Angelina Ballerina and I thought it would be perfect for entering this challenge.
