wk 45 - Water/ice Blue/Purple inspiration

It's Colouring Crazy day! Yay!!

Today we have loads more AMAZING inspiration for you for our current challenge which is
Water/Ice Effects or

This one made some of the team very scared but it doesnt have to be - it can be blue/purple tones for Winter/Xmas, rain, Glass, water, snow - there are lots of possibilities! 
So we just want to see your makes which cover any of these options or something else you might have up your sleeves! 
You have until 14th November to enter this challenge and the winner will receive some Graph'It goodies to play with - just please follow our simple rules to enter. 
we accept entries from any alochol medium and you can also use pencils and distress inks to enter too! 

Yvonne -  Well this challenge defintiely challenged me, I am totally rubbish at water but I thought Ice may be just as tricky, so I decided on water. Yip, that's my brain for you! I also created my own background thanks to the fab tutorial on Claire Boelema's previous post for Week 42. Thanks Claire!!! 
The Graph'It Markers I used are as follows:
Skin:  4120, 4155, 3210, cheeks 4145 & 4135, lips; 4175 & 5215, eyes 7105 & 7115

Claire Boelema - I really struggled with this challenge and ended up making something completely to different to what I'd originally intended. I created my ice by using a paint brush and Mix It Fluid with my Graph'It Markers and then added a coat of Glossy Accents which I texturized with a toothpick.
