So let's get to the inspiration....

Nikky....I chose the colour palette for this theme but I think I ended up deviating a little as I was trying to colour it from memory - clearly didnt work LOL! 
I loved this image although it was really detailed to colour with all the armoury....
 I didnt intend making a background for this at all but I somehow ended up with a mark on the base of the image so it had to be disguised. I decided as she was obviously a Secret agent waiting to pounce that she would be hiding in the wispy fog...this then ended up as steamy/foggy bubbles LOL..
 ..but we're all allowed a little creative licence, right....
To make the bubbles I coloured the base with 6109 and the background/sky with Glass and then usign the dropper, added drops of Mix'It Fluid to create the bubbles - the fluid disperses the colour beneath from the centre until it evaporates. I added some blue 6140 and some Orchid around the edges and kept swirling the circles with a blender until I was happy with it.   The fog/steam is created by smudging the Graph'It Shake White marker across the image with your finger.
 I was having a bad day and I actually got a mystery shadow under the right eye along the noseline which had to be disguised so I added some extra 4135 to her cheeks to blend it all in with the result that she is a lot more shadowed than intended but I quite like her this way...just wanted to show you that even the worst disaster you can usually get around somehow...

Colours I used:
Reds: 5210, 5215
Yellows: 2110, 2150, 2170, 2180, 9400
Blues: 6140, 6115, 6119
Green: Bamboo and Yellow 2150 mixed to create a mossy green as per the palette
Bubbles - Glass, 6140, Orchid, Blender, Mixing Fluid

Caroline.....I have used Delores D'ammage which can be found here, love this image it's great to colour....
 The color palette works great with these Kenny K images as they really take they bright vibrant colors.

skin 4150, 4145, 4135, 4125, 4105
hair 5215, 5230, 5210 plus gold shaker pen
clothes 7270, 7120, 7145
boots 8280, 8245, 8220, 1280
The background was made by using an embossing folder then using the same colors used color the digi i colored the triangles but then went over them with the blender pen to give them a shabby appearance as didnt want them to uniform and perfect.

YvonneI got to play with Brianna Blaster for this challenge and I have never ventured into colouring something like this before, but I loved it! She took me ages to colour but I loved it. I have never done 'ombre' colouring before either and of course left it to last so I am very very grateful it worked!  I was really pleased with how she turned out. 

I used the following markers:

Markers used are as follows:
Skin: 4105, 4125, 3105, 3110

Claire C I loved colouring this fun image and I adore the colour palette Nikky has chosen for us this week!  Once I'd coloured the image I masked him and used the tube from a biro to blow ink from my Graph'Its to create a background. I doodled around the edges and then I was very brave and wrote the sentiment lol

Here's a close up, I've added some dots to the background with  white and silver Graph'It Shake Pens and used the silver pen to give his specs some shine.

Colours used:
Skin: 3155.3145.3125.3105
Hair: 9905,9506,9502
