Susan -I have made an easel card this week for a change and gone a bit OTT .I wanted something Rich and Lush and that's what I got
The image is coloured with my amazing Graph'It markers - if you haven't tried them yet, take a tip from me, give them a go you wont be disappointed. Don't forget to try some Ultimate Graphic 160 gsm card too, Nikky's favourite for colouring, it works hand in hand with the GI's to give you that smooth blend.
These are the GI's I have used
Skin 4115 ,4155 ,4145
Hair 3210 ,3250 ,3255
Dress 5160 ,5245 ,5255 ,3140
Under Skirt 9400 ,9401,9402 ,9403
Gold Shake pen and White Shake pen

Claire C  Fancy frills was a good excuse to make a really girly card so I printed this lovely image out on Ultimate Graphic 160gsm card and coloured her with my Graph'It markers before going to town with lots of embellies and making some frills from lace and ribbon...

Pinks: 5135, 5124, 5115, 5110

Anjie - I have printed one of the papers from the Studio 12 CD-rom Picknix Collection 1 onto some card and made a box. I then printed the cupcake image from the same CD  onto some Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper and coloured it with Graph'It Markers. I then cut some die cuts and stamped the sentiment and Butterfly from a Premium Crafts Brands stamp set. I used a Graph'It MIX'IT Palette and a blender pen to give the butterfly a water coloured look. I coloured the edges of all the die cuts with  Graph'It Markers.

The  Graph'It Markers I used were:

7240, 7220, 7210,
5120, 5115, 5110

Claire Boelema: I interpreted the theme slightly differently to my teamies. I decided my Frilly and Fancy would be the frilly, flouncy dress the image is wearing. I added a bit of lace,ribbon and glitter to add to the theme. I printed the image onto Ultimate Graphic Paper and coloured it with Graph'It markers. I added some pops of sparkle to the dress using the Silver Shake'It pen, which I dabbed at with my finger to give a more subtle shimmer.

Hair: 9100, 9501, 9504, 9506, 9909

Kym....It is Kym here and I am delighted to appear here as Guest Designer for a couple of Graph’it challenges as I love my Graph’it pens. As soon as I saw this topic I wanted to do a summery theme. 

I have used my Polkadoodles Fredericka CD for the image and the backing papers. My colour scheme was mainly pink and brown/craft with a touch of yellow and orange thrown in. The Graph’it pen colours I have used are:
