Wk 33 Furry Stuff......Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Welcome back to another colouring Friday with us here at Graph'It!

We are loving your entries so far for our Fur challenge - 
don't forget this can also include feathers, Christmas fur on clothing - whatever you want! 

You have until Fri 23rd August to enter and remember you do NOT have to use Graph'It to enter, but you do need to colour an image of some kind! 
We will use to pick a Random winner and as always the team will pick their favourite Top 3 - our winner will win some great Graph'It stash courtesy of Premium Art Brands here in the UK. 

The winners from our last challenge are at the end of this post, so let's see what the Design Team have all been up to with this theme....

Yvonne - Hi there everyone, I cannot tell you how amazing it was to be told that I had been included in the Graph'It Design Team, but here I am and here is my first project for the team.  Now I have been a little bit naughty for my very first post, as I have smuggled in a sneak peak of an upcoming collection that is due to be released from Polkadoodles, his name is Winston and I just know that you are all going to love him as much as I do!

Susan  Well here we are again with some new inspiration for the Graph'it Fur and Feathers challenge .I have used bits of leftover papers to make this card. The image is from Polkadoodles and I have used my GI's to colour this cute little bear ,There's an amazing tutorial on the Colouring Secrets with Nikky Hall DVD on how to create fur - a must have DVD with lots of hints, tips and techniques...
 .I have used Ultimate Graph'it paper
Graph'its used 9303 ,9304 ,9305 ,9307 ,9500 plus Mix'it fluid

Penni Hey everyone.  I'm so excited to be a member of the great team here at Graph'It Markers and I'm really looking forward to sharing my work with you.
Here's my first project.  I used an image from Polkadoodles.  To get the effect of fur, I coloured the bears first and, before colouring anything else, I got a clean flannel and sprayed it with some Mix It Fluid - I then dabbed it on the coloured areas of my image to created a textured effect.

Bears - 1210, 1230, 1250, 4120, 4125

Claire C Now this was a real challenge for me as I don't often colour animal images but I had a lot of fun colouring this cute little squirrel. I used two techniques for his fur, for the long fur on his tail I used lots of different Graph'It shades and 'flicked' the colours to give the effect of fur. On his face I used a little scrap of towelling misted with Mix'it Fluid to create the effect of fur....
