B Fri 29th Aug wk 35 - Florals/ Transparency challenge inspiration

Welcome back to another lovely colouring day at Graph'It!

Today we have to tell you to make sure you check out the Kit and Clowder site this weekend as there are lots of great things going on over there including a great colouring competition!
Also - make sure you check out the Polkadoodles blog every Tuesday for lots of fantastic colouring inspiration too - there's a new team in town!

So today we have more inspiration for you from the team for the 
Florals or Transparency
challenge
which you can ENTER HERE

So by transparent this can mean water, glass, reflections etc etc - you get the picture. 
And the Design Team have come up with some truly inspiring ideas again for us!! 
You can join in this challenge if you wish but we realise this might be a bit scary for some people so just choose which - or of course, both - themes you want to follow.

You have until Fri 5th September at noon GMT to enter and the winner will receive some Graph'It markers to try out!  Just remember to please follow our simple rules in the sidebar.  We'll be back next week with the winners from last time.

The winners of our last challenge are at the end of this post...

Cara - I decided to colour lovely sparkly dragonfly wings for my project this week, I coloured the image behind the wings first using a shade lighter than normal then coloured the wings of the dragon fly over the top.

Anjie  - I have used the old Pond Neighbours Clear Stamp from Polkadoodles, it may be old but I still love it. Watching Nikky colour this range of stamps was what go me hooked on colouring!

So the colours I used are:
The pond: 7210, 7220, 7240, blender and the silver glitter shake pen
I started at the edges with the darkest colour and worked into the centre with the lightest. I them went over the middle with the blender pen to take some colour out and add swirls. I then added the glitter over the top to make it shimmer.
The bridge and fence: 3110, 3210
House: 5110, 5120, 1210, 1230
Grass: 8110

Susan  ~ This is an amazing challenge and I just love it ! Transparent.  It's a little difficult to make out but it's the wings that are transparent .  I have used my Graph'it Markers to colour the image and then put Maimeri Glassy gel onto the wings with a small brush.
