Three Challenges in One!

Hello there!

We have a new challenge for you at Graph'It Marker colouring Crazy Challenge this week and a NEW sponsor!!!  Yes, this time we are sponsored by 'All Dressed Up'!

I got to play with 3 Little Summer Girls.  Now the illustrious Mrs Hall has a wicked sense of humour and for this challenge she decided that the Design Team could have a colour challenge of Pink, Yellow & Orange AND for each girl, use a different skin combo.  Then she added that the challenge for the public was 'Use a Die'.......................gauntlet thrown, challenge accepted :)

I used the following palette for inspiration:

 I made a simple 8x8 card, using papers from a Lili of the Valley paperpad. They had pink, yellow and orange - result! 

Girl with hat:
Skin: 4115, 4125, 3110
Hair: 9506, 9508, black
Dress & Hat: 4145, 4135, 5135, 5140, 2110, 2180
Mix It Palette

Middle girl:
Skin: 4125, 4150, 3110
Hair: 3110, 3120, 3150, 3190
Dress, Bucket & Socks: 1110, 1150, 1180
Mix It Palette

Girl with Rubber Ring:
Skin: 4101, 4105, 4125, 3105
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270, 3110
Top, Ring & Bucket: 2110, 2150, 2180
Mix It Palette, Graph'It White Shaker Marker

What do you think? Did I manage to give three skin combos? I admit I was trying for different skin tones but I am not sure I managed it to the level of success I was hoping for! Oh and I used Spellbinders Grand Rectangles for my die ;)
