The "rules" of the monthly challenge are very basic and can be found in the blog sidebar or in a page at the top of the blog.

It would be lovely if you could play along with the challenge this month.
You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
This set of two images is called "From the Mist".

In this set you will get the image "Iris from the Mist - Greyscale" and "Poppy from the Mist - Greyscale".
This image is called "Light Me Up".

In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.

There is an amazing array of beautiful digital stamps in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store. They include black-and-white images, greyscale images, partially coloured images and fully coloured images.

Why don't you pop on over and take a look?
There is also a Facebook Group where all new members are very welcome.

The Facebook Group can be found HERE.

Here crafters will share their creations made with a Ching-Chou Kuik image.

On the Facebook Group there will also be the details of the monthly Facebook Challenge and details of any sales etc.
Friday 1 April 2022 sees the start of a new monthly challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

The challenge is "JUST COLOUR IT".

The aim of this challenge is for people who like to colour in images but do not want to use it for cards/scrapbooking/mixed media etc. 

If you enter this challenge please do not enter the Blog Challenge or the normal Facebook Monthly Challenge as we do not allow just coloured in images for that challenge.

On the other hand can I please ask those that enter the Blog Challenge or Facebook Challenge do not enter this challenge as it is for just coloured in images only.
Over at Kit and Clowder you will find details of various on-line classes that you can buy and participate in. Ching-Chou Kuik is one of the sponsors.

If you want to find out a bit more about colouring techniques pop on over to Kit and Clowder and have a look.
To enter this challenge you need to use a rubber stamp or digital stamp (black-and-white/greyscale or partially pre-coloured or fully coloured in images).

Just coloured in images are NOT allowed and need to be made into a card/project to enter the challenge.

NO fully digital cards are allowed.

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.

Thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to see your creations this month.
