Wk13: Graph'It challenge...No Characters - colour an Accessory!

Hey, it's Friday! Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge!

Now, before we even get started we have some great news for you all - from today's challenge onwards we shall be picking a RANDOM WINNER each week to get one of our great prizes! WOOHOO!! We're doing this as a massive thanks to you all for entering each week and we think it's much fairer that everyone gets an equal chance to win some lovely goodies, no matter how great your technique for colouring is! So from now on, if you enter then you're in the draw! We will still choose our favourite top 3 as well and they will receive a little prize too.

So our challenge for the Design Team this week was....are you ready for it?....

Now, this one is a little tough, so we are bending the rules a little for you at home - you CAN use a Character but we also want you to colour in something extra too - for example, a house, a flower, a butterfly, a wall, pumpkin, cat, dog, etc etc etc....we want you to colour an accessory! 
The winner of this challenge will win a set of Graph'It markers and our Top 3 faves will get a great digi download, so get your entries in by Sunday 29th!

So onto our winners from week 11 which was to show us your background techniques...we had quite a few entries for this and there were some great ideas so a huge well done to everyone! Our winners are:
2. Sally
3.  Lucy
Big congratulations everyone! Stephanie you win a set of 6 Graph'It Xmas colours so please email Nikky your snail mail address to claim your prize.

Ok, let's head over to see what the Uber talented team have for you today to inspire....

This is a tough Challenge, but it can also be a lot of fun to make something other than a character the focus of your card. Originally, I was just going to use the Graffiti to make a party invite, but I kind of got carried away and coloured up a whole wall too...
Markers Used...
Wall; 4110, 3210, 3170, 3180, 3190, Whites; 9500, 9100, Turquoise; 7140, 7145, 7160, Yellow; 1150, 1250, Green; 8260, 8270, 7290, Orange; 2150, 2180

Yes, I also found it a bit of a challenge but fun too, I must have had food on the brain when I was deciding what to do!  I found this yummy Christmas Pudding on the PolkaDoodles 'Here Comes Christmas ' CD.
Graph'It Colours
White - 9100 9101 9501
Pudding 3125 3140 5150 3160
Holly 5245 3170 8270 8280

What a fun challenge, I decided to may a boy's card, so used the cute truck digis on the Pretty Tuff CD from Polkadoodles for my bright and cheery card.
Graph'It Colours used;
1170, 1180, 2150, 2160, 5220, 5240, 6110, 6140, 6180, 6190, 7125, 7130, 9103, 9105, 9108.

This week's theme was defnitely a challenge but I decided to have a go at colouring glass and bottled (ouch bad pun lol) out of colouring the wallpaper through the glass so I tried to add some shadow and  depth around the bottom of the glass to make it look like it was standing well away from the wall.
I used neutral greys for the glass and added a little 7210 for the glass,, I also used the neutral greys for the shadows

So there is our inspiration from the fabulously talented Graph'It team this week!...
