So onto our new challenge!
Our theme this week as always is 
But as ever we like to make the DT work a little harder and our challenge for them is 
Happy New Colour! 
We are Challenging ourselves to get out of our comfort zones and use a colour we would not normally pick to colour an image. Sometimes the best things happen when you least expect it and using a colour you wouldn't normally pick can make a huge difference to your work - it could add the vibrancy you've been missing or just add an extra perfect touch you'd otherwise miss so give it a try....We'd love you to try this challenge too so if you do make sure you tell us which one you have chosen!

You have until 12noon (GMT) on Sunday 5th of January to play along – simply follow the theme and add your challenge entry to Mr Linky at the end of this post. We have one change to our rules - you can only enter a maximum of 3 times to make it fair for everyone! The winner will be announced here on the GI blog on Friday 17th of January and will win Graph'It goodies.

Here are our fabulous DT’s creations …

Jane: I chose Yellow as my colour I wouldn't normally use to create a lovely golden coat for the lovely Labradors on my card. I rarely use yellows but  I love the rich gold you can create with the Graph'it markers. I will be sure to use this colour combination again for hair and animals.
Graph'it Markers used:
1250, 3110, 3140

Claire C: I've used the pink greys to colour this gorgeous image from the Polkadoodles CD Frederika, they give a lovely warm grey/brown shade:

Colours used:
Dress: 6290, 9306, 9305,9303, 4150
Hair: 3180, 3150, 3120, 1230
Skin: 4180, 4155, 4115, 4125 plus 5125, 5110

Iris: I choose two colors which I really don't use very often to color: orange and yellow. Just not my fav colors ;-). But I like the rich tones you can get with the Graph'It markers!

Colors used:
Yellow: 1110, 1130, 1180, 1280
Orange: 2130, 2120, 2110, 2105
Blue: 165, 7140, 7150
Teddy: 3255, 3250, 3210, 9400, 4135, 4145
Outline: 9100, 9101
I also used the blender pen and the Mix'It palette

So that's our inspiration from the fabulously talented Graph'It team this week!
