Anjie - The image, papers and sentiments are all from the Pretty Tuff CD Rom.  I've added faux stitching around the paper and sentiments and added some die cut banners from Tattered Lace.
Here is the image coloured with the same colours but using the Mix It Palette and a brush tipped blender pen
Doesn't it look different! I have to say I am very impressed with the Mix It Palette, I thought it was something I didn't need, how wrong was I!
The colours of the Graph'Its I have used are:
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4170, 4715
Denim: 7109, 7110, 7115
T-Shirt: 5210, 5215, 5220
Bear: 2105, 2110, 2120

Zoe - For this week's challenge I had a play with creating texture on clothes and in particular denims. Once I finished colouring my image, I sprayed some Mix It Fluid onto a textured towel. I then dabbed the cloth onto the coloured jean's, not rushing to allow the fluid to lift some of the colour and to leave the impression of the cloth.

The Graph It's I used are - 
Skin = 4115, 4120, 4125, 4135, 4150, 4155, 4170
Hair/shoes = 3190, 6160, 5140, 4150
T-shirt/bag = 7140, 7145, 9103
Denim = 9100, 9102, 9103, 9505, 7180

Nikky...I haven't had much time this week as I've been away at the UK Craft trade show at NEC but I really wanted to join in this challenge...
I used my Dollie Daydream digistamp and I'm a bit obsessed with colouring water at the moment as you might have guessed. Actually, if I'm honest this was the first and just about the only image that I had to hand last minute LOL! I absolutely adore Graph'It Cool Greys for colouring Denims and that's what I've used here with a very limited colour palette of only Greys (other than skintones).

The Graph'It colours I used are:
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4170, 4175, 4145
Jeans: Cool Greys 9101, 9102, 9103, 9105, 9106, 9905, 9909
Umbrella and background: Neutral Greys 9501, 9502, 9102
