We have had so much fun with our free to enter coloring challenge, here at thecoloringbook.club, that we wanted to review our favourite entries for the year. From penguins to owls and Alice in Wonderland to crazy cupcakes our free coloring pages have proven very popular.

Coloring Challenge 2016: Year in Review
To wrap up a fine year of coloring page competition, thecoloringbook.club take a look at six of our favourite competition coloring pages that were shared with us in 2016.
Summer Breeze – Cool Colors
In August, Angela Stones shared this two tone entry that uses a cool color palette for our free beach hut coloring page. Nice shading and crisp colors made this one of our favourite coloring pages.
Our free penguin coloring page saw some wonderful entries back in March. One of our favourites was this beautiful page from Debbie Yip. With fantastic color blends and a radiant sun this page still shines through as one of our favorite ever coloring page entries.
Welcome to Wonderland
With an Alice in Wonderland theme this free coloring page had our heads spinning! Simone Renate, sent us a striking entry using a super use of black to help the page really stand out.
Super Sweet Coloring Style!
This free cupcake coloring page proved popular back in April. Fpercephone shared a multicolored entry with us. This coloring page has a kaleidoscope of different colors but they make perfect sense with the theme and this cupcake coloring page exudes sweetness and style!
As light as a feather
Veva Kratka gave us this great entry for our free owl coloring page challenge in February. Using colored pencils Veva provides some great texture to the coloring in this page, the feathers of the birds contrast well with the colors used and there is some nice blending on the leaves.
Bring it home coloring fans!
Coloring can be a great source of comfort and relaxation. People often find that when they color they allow their mind to switch off from day to day pressures and focus purely on the task at hand. Coloring is the minds equivalent of snuggling up at home sheltering from the weather. Denise Russell Ordoyne shared this “Home is where the heart is!” themed coloring page at the beginning of 2016. Some great blending with pens and a vibrant choice of colors make this coloring page one of our favourite entries of 2016!
Finally, we’d like to say thank you to everyone that entered a coloring challenge in 2016 and we look forward to seeing your entries in 2017!
Our greeting is also available as a free holiday snowflake coloring page – have a wonderful holiday season and see you in the 2017 for more coloring challenge fun!
