So let's see what the team have made for you this week...
The team were challenged to add sparkle and also use one of these great colour palettes!...

Scatty Jan The other day my Granddaughter got her first kitty - she has always been cat mad , when I was chatting to her  I asked her what she wanted for christmas - her reply * Anything Grandma your presents are always lovely but my cat would like , toys, some nice biscuits the list went on* - as soon as i got my lovely image from Digital Delights I knew I had to do it in the colours of her cat and made a gift tag for her Christmas treats! My lovely image is Chimney Cat how cute !!  I actually used a fine liner in my darkest Grey , I don't use them very often but am getting used to them. Fot the white background I used a dotty embossing folder and then coloured in the dots using my Silver Shake'it It love the effect soooooo sparkly in real life....

The Colours i used are
Cool Greys 9201 - 9204
Greens 8160 8180 8190
Reds 3180 5245 5210 5220
White Shake'It marker
Gold/ Silver Shake'It markers

Cara  For my image this week I decided to go with the darker colour palette as gingerbread biscuits at Christmas make me think of warm cosy nights drinking hot chocolate! The image is called Candy Wreath Natasha.  I added gold shake marker to the image and all of the edges of my papers and even the flowers, you've got to have sparkle at Christmas and the shake markers are perfect!
Colour's used:
Brown: 3250,3245,3210
Red: 5260, 5250, 5220
Green: 8290, 8280, 8260
White and shadows: Neutral greys


Nikky...I started using the left hand colour palette but in the end I think I covered both, purely by accident LOL. I wish I could plan my colouring better but I just go with the flow and I dont always end up with where I meant to finish off.
My aim with this was to  do a glitter effect without actually using a glitter product so I hope I achieved it, I just literally used red and green markers to create dots then applied my white Graphit Shake to highlight more dots and sparkles. I have to confess that the dark background was actually added with Pan Pastels as it was an afterthought just to give me a bit of a glow...

Colours used: Mouse - 4120, 4145 & 4125 for cheeks and skin and nose, 7101, 7109 for shade
Red 5240, Green 8180, Hat = 8150, 8160, 8180

Kevin I enjoyed colouring this sweet fun image and tried to make it look as if he was sitting in a wooden bucket of sweets...
