As I don't have the full range of Greys I would usually use to colour black hair I decided to do something a little different ..... ombre hair!!!! Had I not had these wonderful markers I doubt I would have ever tried something like this, they really do make those normally challenging projects so much easier!
Simonne...
Although Graph'It have FIVE different sets of grey markers (Warm, Cool, Netural, Pink and Green Greys), I only have the Neutral Greys, so I used these to colour my black hair this week!  I also used Heather (with wings) digi stamp and Apple Lagoon papers from the *new* Polkadoodles Bonbon Belles double CD Collection.


Graph'it Markers used:
Skin: 4155 4115 4125 4120....Blush: 4135 Lips: 5120 Eyes: 8220....Hair: 9509 9507 9505 9303 9501....Jacket & Shoes: 7160 7150 7140....Trousers: 8110 7210 0000....White shading: 4110 0000....Wings: 8110 7210....Flowers 7160 7150 7140 7210 1210 8260 8220

I have used this adorable image from the Polkadoodles Candy Doodles CD Collection, on colouring the black hair I found I could do with another couple of lighter grey Graph'It markers.


Graph'It Markers used 
Skin 4155..4145..4115..4135..4180......Hair  9909..9905..9508..9505.......Dress 8110..8240..8130
Flowers,bird & grass 1110..2140..1130..1150

I like to add a base colour when doing black hair to give nice highlights so I opted for a blue grey then built up with the neutrals and finished the deepest areas with black..


Graph'It Markers used:
Hair - 9102, 9505, 9507, 9509, 9909.....Skin - 4180, 4170, 4155, 4110, 5110....Pinks - 5120, 5130, 5255......Turquoise - 720, 7260, 7240
