The palettes that the design team had to choose from were:

I loved the image I got to play with, the challenge was a stinker though! Lol!!! I used 'Serafina & Firenze' and you can find it here.  You see the rule of thumb is and always should the background FIRST! So obviously, I coloured my image using the traditional Halloween palette, and it took me ages and I was sooooo happy with it and then I remembered I was supposed to be creating a pattern........uh-oh! Then I thought, embossing folders, they are patterns and you get embossing folders with clouds on them, soooooo let's do a background with clouds. 

With my Mix It fluid, my Mix It Palette and my blender pen I went for it and to be honest I am not 100% sure it worked, BUT I gave it a go! I coloured the image with the following markers:

Skin: 4125, 3105, 3110, mix it palette
Purples: 6130, 6140, 6150
Greens: 8290, 8270, 8245
Wand: 3255, 3230, 3120
Bird: 3120, 3230, 3255, 1210, 1240, 1280, 7125 (eye)
Witchy power glow: 1110, 1180
Greys added into to clothing: 9502, 9503, 9500
Clouds: 9501, 9500, 9101 - lots of blender
Sky: 7101, 7105, 9100, mix it palette
Mountain path: 9500 (base) dots of 9101, 9501, 9502, 9503, blender! 

By the time I matted and layered her, I think with my sky and my pretend 'path' - I think I am pretty close to using both palettes!!!!! Lol!!!!

Anyway, there you have it. I hope you like her. Do not forget to pop along to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team and to find the simple rules to come and join us in the challenge fun. 

See you soon
