This week we are very lucky to be sponsored by the fabulous
Here is a short bio about Wendy:
 Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors. I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork. Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers . All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Anne Lise and Bettina along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls. We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

The winner of our last challenge will be announced next week so let's see this week's fabulous inspiration from the Graph'It UK Design Team...

Nikky...I used the  Love to Shop image created by Wendy Burns - so adorable! I really loved this colour palette, it reminds me of Tooty Fruity Sweets and this combo is all about sunshine and feeling great I think!  When I found this photo it just made me think of lemonade days...
The key to creating great colour combinations is always to ensure you get the right tones. This sometimes confuses people when using Graph'It as it's easy to assume that the markers work in numerical order, but this is not the case. My biggest tip for anyone whether you are advanced or a beginner is to always make sure you colour your own chart in so that you always have it to hand. I never ever colour without mine because it's so easy to pickup the wrong colour by mistake! If you use the wrong tones together you will end up with dirty, murky looking blending which just doesnt work.
