Pearls & Bling.......................

Hello there!

It's a NEW challenge at Graph'It Marker Colouring Crazy Challenge and this time we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments, whoooo hooooo! This challenge theme is 'Pearls & Bling' but because Nikky hates the idea of her Design Team being idle, she also challenged us to a colour challenge of 'Cream & White'.

Yip - 2 challenges!  Mean Mrs Hall! lol!

I was very lucky to get to play with 'Harriet's Fancy Dress', she is too cute! Now for the challenge of cream and white, I opted to use marker 1210, coz amazingly enough it is called 'cream'. However, I also needed to use the other markers in this tone which kinda hints at brown but 1210 is called cream and that is good enough for me!

I have coloured her with the following markers:
Skin: 4125, 4155, 4170, 4135, 4145
Hair: 3110, 3140, 3160, 3180
Dress, hairband and shoes: 1210, 1230, 1270, 9500, 9501
Handbag: 9500, 9501, 1210, 1230

I decided to go mental and make a scalloped easel card, I am a square card girl so shaped cards make me queasy, but I wanted to try, so I did. :)  The papers are from the Polkadoodles Pretty Sweet Collection.

However, the fab thing no one tells you when making these cards is that nothing is straight, you think it's straight and then you pop it up and half of it's squint and looks weird. However, Nikky said she wanted us to show cards were something went wrong, to be fair that could be all of my makes, but in this instance, here's my squint masterpiece!!!

However, don't let my squintness put you off - pop over to the main challenge and show me how it's done when you join in this fab challenge with us! You don't need to use Graph'It Markers to join in, any colouring medium is good, but you must actually colour something on your make, we've had a few entries where there has been no colouring, so please ensure you read our challenge rules.

See you soon!
