wk 27....Anything Goes with a marker inspiration Graphit Colouring Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome back to another colouring challenge!

Don't forget that we have an International design Team call out and are looking for some great colourists to join the team!
You can see the call here...

You can find the winners of our last challenge at the bottom of this post but first let's get to the challenge...
this week is our inspiration for our current challenge
Anything Goes
and the team are loving this one because they can show you whatever they want!

You can join in the challenge too, just enter anything where you've used some kind of colouring with an alcohol marker - you have until 11th July to enter and we will announce the random winner and top 3 favourites as picked by the team on 18th July. Our random winner will receive Graph'it goodies so it's well worth entering! don't forget you do NOT have to use Graph'Its to enter!
We hope you'll all enter the challenge again this week - 

So let's see what the team have made....

Cara.....I'm so pleased we are being treated to an Anything Goes challenge this time, I've been waiting to try using my Graph'its on Kraft card and this gave me the perfect opportunity.
I have a couple of tips for you when using Kraft Card:

Chose the regular colour combo you use for white card and then take away the lightest colour and add in a darker shade .. this will help the colours show on the darker card without looking too different from your usual combo.

Outline/highlight your image with a white pencil, it will help the colour pop like this:
Graph'its used:
Skin: 3120,4155,4150 (4135 for cheeks)
Green: 7160,715,7145
Blue: 8180, 8140
Hair: 3290,3280,3270

Claire Boelema - I've used the fabulous new Rose Budd Collection to create my card this week. 
Graph'It Markers used:
Skin: 4115, 4120, 4135, 4155
Hair: 1270, 3245, 3255
Clothes: 4135, 4145, 4150, 8280, 8290, 0000

Kevin We All love an anything goes challenge don't we, a good reason to be able to make anything we wan't. So I thought I would go sailing using this gorgeous Image from the Cherryblossom Lane Cd rom from Polkadoodles...
