I love setting challenges on my blog and I hope that they help inspire you to try something a bit different with your colouring.

This is a challenge to colour a non-christmas image using only these standard christmas colours: White, Gold, Silver, Red and Green.

The twist is that you must incorporate at least one small part of the image with a candycane type effect. So whether you go for traditional red and white stripes or green, red and white like this one – you get the idea.


It’s up to you what image you colour and you can colour/draw a background if you like.

As this is quite a tough challenge and it’s the festive season i’m going to have a random draw for a mystery colouring prize.

You have until the 26th Dec Midnight GMT to get you image coloured in and emailed to me with the subject CHRISTMAS TWIST – please let me know where the image is from/which book etc.. and the colouring medium/s used

This challenge and giveaway are open worldwide – but if someone outside the UK wins please bear in mind the prize may not arrive in time for Christmas.

This challenge is open to any age person so feel free to let your kiddies get involved.

Just 1 entry per person though please.

The prize will be worth at least £20 and will be a mystery selection of colouring products.
