Scatty Jan   Wooohooooo am not normally here on Team A but so glad I joined in this week as I loved the colour Palettes and of course the scrummy image that I got to colour in Kids build snowman You can find the image here Total cuteness - I went for the more turquoisey/beigy palette. How much fun are they having? Rosy cheeks was a must!

The Colours I used 
Skin 3120, 4135,4145, 4125, 4150
Snowman 9100 - 9104 Blender
Blues 7140, 7150, 7145, 7155
Browns 3210, 3245, 3250
Silver Shake'It

Claire C  I've coloured this fabulous quirky little scene, it's called Christmas Town and you can find it here. I kind of lost the plot a bit with my colour swatch although I did use the colours I had to add some yellow as I was playing with a my White Shake pen to create a glow round the lights and the smoke effect - I just blobbed on a good bit of ink and used my finger to smudge it. I left it white for the smoke but went over in yellow around the lights....
Here's a list of the colours used:
Sky 6190,6185,7180,7170,7165,7150,7140, Mix'It Fluid plus White and Silver Shake pens
Other Colours used: 8270,8245, 5160,5220,  1140, 1110, 9500, 9501, 9502, 4150, 4155.

I used texture paste to add some 'snow' and then used my Silver Sparkle pen with a waterbrush to add a frosty shimmer although it doesn't show up too well on the photo


Nikky...Well as usual it's disorganised.com for me but I had this palette stored in my virtual mind when I cane to colour up this stunning image from our sponsors which you can get HERE....
I'm really struggling with some bad neck, shoulder and back pain at the moment (yes, caused by way too much colouring, surprise surprise!), so I'm trying to restrict myself to only colouring for an hour, I honestly can't take much more but man o man it makes you stop faffing about and just get on with it LOL...I think this was actually 1.5hrs in the end if i'm truthful and I'd have liked to spend more time on the shading really, I didnt get so much light and shade on Santa as I'd have normally done. But I really thought the richness of this colour palette worked for this image and it's nice to see Santa dressed a bit different - after all he kinda looks like a steampunk Santa lol!....I wanted it to look like he was taking a break so I added lots of snow onto him where it had begun to settle (I think I went a little OTT in the end haha)...and then I realised I didnt do any sparkles but my idea was the snow was sparkling on the rooftop LOL *wink wink*....
Colours I used:
Skin: 4105, 4125, 4150, 3105
Hat/Leggings - greens 3150, 3160, 3180
Coat: 7155, 7165, 7180, 7280, 6155
Reds: 5240, 2170, 6155
Sky: 6155, 6160 plus dots made with blender pen
Snow roof: 4110, 7105, 7220
Snow: Graph'It Shake white marker
