So let's see what the team have made for you!

 Nikky....I always love using my Graph'It markers, they're so vibrant and I love making backgrounds for my images with the blender and Mix'It Fluid and Palette....the image I used is Octavia which can be found here from Polkadoodles....
I coloured the background with dark blues and outlined some tree silhouettes...I dont often use the really dark blues so it was nice to go really bold and dark for a change. I took the dropper out of the Mix'It fluid and just randomly dripped drops of fluid on the background...I'd like to say I planned this planet background but it was accidental LOL. I then just got my blender and created circles and stars by spreading the fluid around before it evaporated off. I had to trim a lot off this as the card was going to be massive if I'd kept the background going as the image was printed quite large. I then added some swirls using the blender pen and then added rings around some circles to make them into planets using my desert island White Graph'It Shake pen which I cant live without....
I wanted it to look like she was walking on ice so I made sure the floor was done in a lighter blue and then added plenty of grey and again used my White Graph'It shake for the snow - if you scribble it on and then spread it with your finger really quickly you can get some amazing soft blends which are perfect for adding highlights into areas where you failed to leave enough white, I just love how the snow is coming up over here boots with the grey cast shadow underneath, I think this makes it look really 3D and icy.

Caroline ....I have used Oddella with heart which i think is such a cutie. I placed Mix'It fluid in a  water brush and picked ink up off the Mix'It palette, then put small dabs where I wanted them and went straight over them with a piece of spritzed jute. When i was happy with the whole thing I then lightly spritzed the whole background.. I did all this before i coloured my digi in.

Yvonne - I chose to colour Robin for this challenge from Polkadoodles Work & Play Festive Hollibobs which you can get as a digi download, a CD-Rom or as a single digi.  I coloured the backing card with my markers, namely 9101, 9102, 9103 and then I lay a template of stars on string (ok I made the name up but that's how I think of it), I then took a deep breath and spritzed it with my Mix It Fluid.
