As you know if you join us on a regular basis we normally post weekly inspiration for the 2 weekly challenge but from today we will go to just a 2 weekly post so we'll all be joining in the challenge every fortnight together - it doesnt really make a difference to you, but if you tune in next week and we're not here that is the reason why LOL! Our winners will now be posted on that same week too.

We are lucky to be sponsored by this lovely store today...

Prize 1: You can win 2 great digital stamps from the Toadstool Store so check out the goodies our sponsor has on offer! 
Prize 2: A selection of Graph'It markers for one lucky winner (UK only, sorry)
Cult Pens have a fantastic Graph'It Promotion on at the moment, 3 for 2  HERE so head over there and grab some bargains - you can get a FREE tutorial DVD!!

We were inspired by these colour palettes this time, feel free to use them if you like them too...

    


Scatty Jan Am really not a lover of the colour green but I love colouring with the Graph'It greens, yes I know strange is me. I got to colour this cutie Gnome Girl on cupcake , you can find her in the store here - Her cupcake cried out for some icing so I used a little fluffy stuff, I also used a smidge of glitter on her hat rim - I loved the colour Palettes this week, I find they really inspire me, definatly worth a go if you have lost your Mo Jo xx
The colours I used
4125, 4145, 4150, 3120
7220, 8210, 8245, 8110, 8280, 8115, 8290, 8220, 8240, 8260


Claire C I've used the first colour palette for inspiration to create my project and I've coloured up this adorable digi, Two Mice on a mushroom. I coloured the images and then masked them off. I scribbled some yellow and orange Graph'It markers on my Mix'it Palette and spritzed with Mix'It Fluid before swooshing my image though it. To finish off I've added some grass with my Graph'It markers and added some distress inks to create the sun and to stamp some foliage

Here'a list of the colours used:

Mice: 9405,9403. 9401, 9400 plus 4135, 4147
Toadstool: 2180, 5110, 5125, 5140, 3105 plus 9409, 9305, 3230
Grass: 8220, 8210, 8125 8170
Background: 1250, 1170, 1130
Plus Mix'It Fluid and Palette




Kevin...It was fun to colour a different kind of image for a change, I used the colour palette for inspiration...


Nikky...This image isn't a straightforward one to colour, but if you're just beginning your colouring journey or aren't too confident in your colouring it's quite a good one to start with because it already included some heavy shading for you to follow which takes a lot of the shadow hard work out of the way - bonus!
Colours used: skin 4125, 4150, 3210, 4135, 4145 ears
Greens: 8210, 8220, 8250, 8260
Blue 7270
