Zen Colouring Contest #9 - A chance to WIN SBD by colouring a weekly pattern!

in zencolouringcontest •  2 years ago 



Hey Steemians!

Week 9 of #zencolouringcontest starts now!

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 of 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 Purple.
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)
