Wk 9 Graph'It colour challenge...Colouring Denim 2

Hi everyone and it's Friday again, where does the time go!?!

Last week we set you the challenge of 
Colouring Denim 
and this week we are bringing you some additional inspiration for this challenge with some more inspiring colouring from the team....

Many people seem to really struggle with choosing the right colours for denim and it can be a tricky one but this is where Graph'It really do excel - they have some great colours for denim and as well as the usual blues which most people tend to choose try using the Cool Greys and even the Green Greys for a really great Vintagey, washed out denim look.

You have until Fri 7th March to enter this challenge so that's another week for Denims - so come on, get your entry in and add your link HERE (please don't add to this post, it needs to be with the original post Linky HERE)....

Remember you don't have to use Graph'It to enter but please follow the challenge rules which are in the sidebar for you. The winner of this challenge will receive some great Graph'It stash and you have until Friday 7th March at midnight GMT to enter.

Now, we don't have any winners to announce this week because we've changed our deadlines to fortnightly to give you more time to enter, and today is the final day to enter our Week 7 challenge which was Florals/Love so if you didn't get chance to enter be quick as it closes today! We'll be announcing the winner of this challenge next Friday 7th March and there's a great prize up for grabs.

So let's move on to see what the team have made for us....

This has been an amazing challenge and a challenge for me ,I 'm not very good at colouring denim and need some practice ,well I need lots of practicing when it comes to colouring ,so I thought I would get the new Colouring Secrets DVD by Nikky.  It' the best if you need help or info whether you're a beginner or advanced - take it from me you will be amazed, it's a must have.

Jane: I used a fabulous image from the Dollie Daydream Polkadoodles CD for my card. I have had a break from crafting for over a month due to an operation on my hand so it was lovely to Challenge myself to colour denims. I chose to use Darker colours to colours my denims as a contrast to the rich reds and pinks I used for the T-Shirt.
