Week 19 of #zencolouringcontest starts now! (Sorry for the delay! Temporary adjustments to the schedule have been implemented to make up for it.)
Each week I will provide a stencil to be coloured in with no restrictions on the medium used, with a chance to win 45% of this posts payout and the weeks' donations for 1st place.
To add a little twist and interaction within the community, there will be a featured colour each week, picked at random from entrant's choices. This colour must be used in some way in your interpretation (use as little or as much of the featured colour as you like).
The featured colour this week is Blue
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)
The contest will run week to week, to provide enough time for entrants to colour in the pattern. It's Zen for a reason!

@gardeningchef donated 2.0 SBD last week, Thank you!
This weeks stencil was inspired by insects, particularly the Scarab Beetle. In previous weeks I had made a butterfly and a dragonfly, so to keep the theme running and because it's been many weeks since the butterfly I decided to bring in another winged bug! Maybe there'll be other creatures and critters in future stencils. I hope you enjoy colouring this one!
Have fun, but most importantly have a relaxing zen-colouring sesh!
