We will be back next week with last time's winners but in the meantime, let's see what the team have made for us!....

Caroline....This is Camellia Spirit from Aurora wings, you can buy here HERE....
The colours i have used are: 
skin 4170, 4150,4145,4120, 
hair 1280 1210 1230 1110, 
flowers, 5250, 5130, 5220, 5210, 8270, 8260, 8220, 
turquoise Pan Pastel in the background finished off with dies.

Nikky...I havent had chance to make this into a card but I loved colouring this image soo much. This is called Little Mermaid available here....
As soon as I saw this image I knew what I needed to do with her and apart from the background outer edges she turned out just how I wanted. I was in a quandray if her hair was hair or oyster shells so I went with both LOL.  To make the bubbles I coloured circles with 7220 and 7240 and some 6140.  I then took the dropper out of my Graph'It Mix'It fluid. and dropped biggish drops of fluid on top of the bubbles that were there, overlapping the background - on some I quickly used a blender brush pen working really fast from the centre outwards in big circles to push the blending fluid out. Don't overdo it, you get the best results when you don't mess too much and some work better than others so if you are going to try this do a test first....I had to be really brave to go for it here LOL....
Graph'Its used:
skin: 4120, 4150, 3110 (plus 4250 and 3110 mixed for a midtone), cheeks 4145, 4135. deep shadows 3140.
Mermaid: Hair: 9100, 9101,9102,9104, 9106, 9108, 6130 (I added some white pen highlights as I'd lost some white but wish I'd left it alone)
Tail: 7220, 7240, 7260, 7280, 6140, 6130, 5115, White pen to highlight
Background: centre: 9100, working out with 9101 and 9102 to sides
Bubbles: 7220, 7240, 6140 and white pen highlights.
Brush Blender is an absolute must for this. You can see how the purple has bled slightly in the bubbles on the tail but I really dont mind this at all so dont be too precious over the effect and to make it look realistic - yes you do have to go over the body and overlap those bubbles I"m afraid!! 


 Yvonne - Hi everyone! I love the images from AuroraWings and was delighted to get the chance to colour Camellia Spirit... you can buy her HERE.... - coloured of course with my Graph'It Markers.

The markers I used are as follows:
Skin:  4125, 4150, 4155, 3210, 4145
Eyes:  3110, 3140, 7210, 7220, 7240
Hair:  9103, 9105, 9108, Black
Butterfly:  7210, 7220, 7240, 6130, 6140, 6110, blender
