You can see the winners of our last challenge at the bottom of this post!

Zoe - I loved this challenge, adding depth to images with darker shadows is something I enjoy doing. I've created these bookmarks using a flower image from the gorgeous Dollie Goes East collection. I also added chipboard letters and a heart, all coloured with my Graph It's. I used a brown and a  green grey to add the extra shadows - my image shows the flowers coloured before I added the shadow then after and, of course, the finished project!

The Graph Its I used are -
Reds = 5210, 5215, 5220 & 5245.
Blues = 7125, 7130, 7170 & 7180.
Greens = 8220, 8260 & 8270.
Brown = 3190
Green Grey = 9209

Anjie - I have added shadows to where I think there would be folds in her top and skirts and around the image.
The colours I have used are:
Skin: 4115, 4125, 4120, 4115
Hair: 1210, 1230, 3110, 3140, 3180
Top: 7210, 7220, 7240
Skirt: 9110, 9102, 9103
Shadow: 9110, 9102

I love adding shadows to my images and I like to extend the shadowing around the image (I also tend to get carried away as I have done here and end up making a complete background out of my shadows). I like to use the same colours I have used withing my image to create my shadows as I think it can add an extra dimension to my finished project.


Colours used:

Skin: 4115,4150,4155,3120, 4135
Pink: 5180,5170,3280,3255
Brown: 3290,3280,3255,3245
Shadow around image: 5170, 3255,3245, 0000

Kevin I really enjoyed this challenge, as I really don't use shadow enough of my projects,I did get a bit carried away with the floor but I like the effect...
