Let's get to the great team inspiration this week...we decided to challenge denim and jeans because there are SO many different colour combinations and cool techniques for getting a great denim look and it's one of those things we get asked about all the time. Graph'It have some fantastic colours which are great for denim...the selection of blues is one of the best around and even the Cool Greys are stunning for stonewashed denim effects - go check out the colour palette. Before we get to the team inspiration, remember to join our Facebook group too, Graph'It Markers UK, where we have daily inspiration and share some of our favourite makes & hints and tips every day, it's a great place to be!

I've decided to go with a dark bleached denim look and I also followed the colours through into her hair (I do like to co-ordinate) but it does show that you don't need the full Graph'it Marker collection to colour a decent image - I basically used skin colours, a few greys and a few blues.

Kevin I have used this gorgeous image from the Polka Doodles Pretty Sweet cd rom and went with the washed out jeans look.
Skin 4115. 4135. 4145. 4155. 4170
Hair 3190. 3150. 3125. 3110
Top & Shoes 1130. 1150. 1250. 2140
Jeans 7105. 7125. 7180
I wanted to achieve and older worn denim look so added Cool Greys as they have a lovely blue tinge to them and they blend so well with the other Blues.
