wk 3 - Crisp and White - Graph'It Colouring Crazy Challenge

Friday already and welcome back to another great colouring challenge!

Today we are looking at
Crisp and White

Which translates into anything that has a clean and simple kind of feel - or it could also be frosty and white, it could be icing, clouds, anything that gives you a clean and fresh impression! 
You don't have to use Graph'Its to enter this colouring challenge you can use any markers you wish but our Random winner will receive a set of lovely Graph'It markers to try out for themselves!
You have until 30th January to enter this challenge so we are looking forward to seeing what you colour up for us! 
Our sponsor for the challenge is Polkadoodles so the Design Team's top 3 favourite entries will all win a great digistamp to colour too! 

Let's see what the Design team have made!

Yvonne - Hi everyone! Well here we are with a fresh new challenge and mid January what better theme than 'Crisp & Bright'!? I made a simple 6x6 card and opted to have the main focus on the image and colouring 'skills'. There's no escaping them with a close up image like this, is there! Lol! It took a while but I am happy with the results. It is strangely relaxing to watch these amazing markers work for you and blend so well together, makes me look better than I am to be honest! I did smudge a wee bit into some snowflakes but using the Graph'It Marker White Shaker pen, you would never know! Whoo hoo!
The markers I used are:
 Skin: 4120, 4155, 4170, 4135, 4145 - eyes; 7110, 7115, 3110 & 3140 for the 'eyeshadow'
Hair: 3110, 3140, 3150, 3160, 3180
Hat, Scarf & Mitts: 7210, 7220, 7240, 7250, 7270
Coat: 7125, 7130, 7160

Claire C I found this challenge a wee bit scary to start with but the greys in the Graph'It range are fabulous for creating different shades so I've tried to create some different 'whites' in my card....

Here's a close up of the image

Colours used: Skin 4180, 4155, 4115, 4120

Susan - I just love this challenge , once I got my head around it ! At first I thought White !! colouring white !! ekk! but you dont have to, just as long as you use white somewhere,well this is how I see it, could be wrong. I feel so privileged to have got my hands on one of the NEW!!!!!! digi stamps from our sponsors Polkadoodles this week - Work & Play 9 Love and Kisses.
I have tried to use mainly white for my embellishments ,didn't realize how many shades of white there are! I have coloured  her with my amazing Graph'it Markers and a touch of Inktense (used dry) & coloursoft  Pencils...  They really do make a great team ,working so well together....
