28 Jun Week 1 Challenge...New beginnings

Welcome to the first of our brand new challenges here at Graph'It Challenge!

As we are a brand new team and a brand new blog we thought 
New Beginnings 
would be a great place to start for all of us! 

And as Graph'It are also quite new we thought we would all learn together by challenging the team to use just 7 colours in our palette of markers this week...(of course you can use as many as you wish!)....

So how does this challenge work we hear you ask? Well, we challenge you to use a theme of New Beginnings...this can be a new baby, new home, new job or even a birthday because that is the start of a new year...the choice is yours!

The winner of this challenge will win a fantastic prize worth over £50 which will include Graph'It markers and lots of other stash from Premium Art Brands and Polkadoodles

You have until  Sunday 7th July at noon GMT to enter below by adding your creation to Mr Linky below - don't forget you have the chance to win a fabulous prize! The winner of this challenge will be announced on Friday 12th July here on this blog. Please check our rules below for all entries.

Here is the fantastic inspiration our team have for you this week....

As I had to set the first challenge I wanted it to be a good one and something that would inspire everyone to try Graph'It. If you don't know much about this fantastic new alcohol marker brand then where have you been?!!  Graph'It are the hot new buzzword in the marker world at the moment and are giving all the other brands a run for their money with their stunning colour range of 158 (ever increasing) beautiful tones, vibrance and richness of the inks and overall great value! And if you are a Copic user then we also challenge you to try Graph'It! - go on, you will LOVE them!  There is lots of information at the top of this blog for you to read and catch up with  ; )

We realise some people might not have tried Graph'it yet so to really show you how great they are and that you do not need to rob a bank to get started with a collection, this week I asked the team to only use 7 colours plus skintones...I think they found it difficult at first but soon realised that Graph'It colours are so great that you often find you use less markers than with other brands and get such vibrant tones that the results are still astonishing!.....

I loved this image - here's this cute little bunny starting off on his brand new adventure! The stamp is available from Polkadoodles here and the 7 Graph'It colours I used were: 9303, 9305,7105,7130,7140,7140 and 5120...

If you're a pink fan (like me) than you are gonna love the pink shades you can get from these markers!
Hair: 3150 3125 3120 
Pink: 5110 5120 
Bag: 9401 9303 

( 3170, 5245, 9500, 9502, 9504, 9506, 9508)
I've used one of my favourite techniques, colouring an image in monotone, with a blast of colour on just a few areas. Perfect if you're only allowed to use seven pens. See, it's not scary at all...

(1140, 1230, 1280, 3140, 3160, 4135, 5210)
For my new beginnings I used a new image, along with a new paper pad.  Not forgetting my awesome new Graph'It Markers....

I used this image from the Polkadoodles Bonbon Belles Collection with papers from the Marshmallow Fluff collection.
Graph'It colours used:
Dress: Pink 5110, 5130
Wings: 8110 green, 7140 Caribbean
Hair: 2130, 3120, 3270
Flowers: 2130, 5110, 5130

....So that's our inspiration for you - now it's your turn to get creating! You have until  Sunday 7th July at noon GMT to enter below - don't forget you have the chance to win a fabulous prize! The winner of this challenge will be announced on Friday 12th July. See you next week!
