Nikky - I looove Autumn it's my 2nd favourite season and ever since I was a kid my favourite colours have always included neutrals and I was always a brown shoe girl at school LOL!  I decided to just go quite simple with my colour tones and steer away from the oranges - the fantastic thing with Graph'It markers is that the range of browns is phenomenal and there are loads to choose from. In Graph'It it sometimes looks like there are no paler pastel tones but it's not true - just pull in the soft skintones and it totally extends the colour palette for you...I also tried a new skin combo here and I really like it....
 This photo looks a different colour but is actually a more true colour than the one above for some reason...I used:
Skin: 4125, 4150, 3120 - cheeks 4145, 4135
Dress: 1230, 1270, blender
Hair: 4110, 3210, 3245, 3255, 3290
Shadows: 9400, 9403
Background: 4150, 3210, 3230

Lizzy-  Hello colour friends! I have made my autumn colors card with a cute little girlie.   I decided to try a new hair color combo for this project.  I wanted a "carrot top" color to go with her freckles. To get the hair strands I discovered it works better if you let your ink dry a little bit before adding them.  These markers blend so beautifully that they will blend out if the ink is too wet.





Here are my color combinations used for this card:
skin: 4120, 4125, 4155, 4135
hair: 2105, 2110, 2120, 2130, 3130
red: 5220, 5240, 5270, 5280
brown: 3210, 3245, 3250, 3280, 3290

Wendy - For my card I've used a Fall Fairy image.  I wish I'd coloured her dress in green so that the wings would stand out more - I used loads of different colours to get the effect I wanted.


Here's the list of colours I used:-
Face - 4115  4120  4155  4180  4145  4125  3120  Eyes - 3150  3110  3125  7110  7115
Skin - 4115  4120  4155  4180
Hair - 1230  1270  1250  2120  3125  1150
Head dress - 5220  1250  8280  8290  2160  1150  8220  3130  1230  2150
Wings & dress - 5270  5250  5115  2140  1140  1150  1110  1250  2105  3215  2180  3130  1130

Janet I've used a flower image in my favourite Autumn colours with some die cut leaves. I have kept it simple this week and used a lot less colours than I usually do.



The colours I have used are
Leaves - 8280, 8220
Flowers - 4175, 5110, 5210, 4145
Flower centres - 1180, 1250


Autumn is my most favourite season ...... mostly because it involves Halloween!!! So of course I decided to go with Halloween colours to represent Autumn on my card.

I love the deep dark tones you can achieve with the Graph'it markers and shadows are so easy with the fab range of grays available. (see my blog for more details on the adorable new image I used ) 





Skin: 3120, 4155, 4150,4115 4135 (cheeks)
