Wk 10 Graph'It Colouring challenge - Male Colours

Hello and Happy Friday everyone, it's the weekend already!

Thanks so much to everyone who entered the last challenge which closes today - we hope you're loving the extra inspiration week we're bringing you now and the extended deadlines : )


So what do we have for you this week then?....This week our challenge is 

Male Colours

I love using masculine tones in my colouring, it can make a card look totally different even when it's not a male themed card. It's quite interesting that the team all went for male cards! 


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 21st March at noon GMT to enter.

So let's see what the Design Team have for you this week - and don't forget to drop by next week for some more inspiration for this challenge!...

Nikky...I might be cheating a little with my male colours but I really don't use yellow much for female themed projects and find I use it way more with masculine things. I wanted to show how you can apply the masculine colours but still use them on a very feminine project. You can see more of how I made this here.
Graph'It colours I used:
Uniform: 1230, 1250, 1270, 9403
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4170, 4175, 4145
Pole: 5245, 9403
