So let's get to this week's inspiration!
Scatty Jan For my project this week I have made a trio of book marks using the lovely Meribelle from our fab sponsor this fortnight. I love colouring her up she is so pretty. The images I have used are Swishy Tail, Meribelle and Rock It....

The colours I used are 
Skin 4101 4120 4155 4180
Reds 3180 5245 5220 5210
Orange 2180 2150 2140
Greens 8260 8250 8220
Blue 7120
Greys 9104-9101

Anjie I've used the beach house stamp from the Tropical Oceans clear stamp set. I chose to make a CAS card to show off the image more, and here it is.
The colours I have used are:
5115, 5120
3110, 3120
Sky 7101
Ground 1230
And I have used the Mix'It Palette to pick up the darker colours with the lighter marker, and the blender pen to pick up the sky and ground.

Claire C I've made a mixed media canvas using one of the gorgeous digi stamps from the Winnie in Wonderland Collection  (you can find it here as a CD or here as a download).

Colours used:
Skin: 3230, 4115, 4110, 4105 plus 4147
Hair: 3180, 5280, 5140, 5125, 5120, 5110
Dress: red as above, plus 1270, 2105, 3230, 1230,1210

Nikky...I used this lovely Mirabelle Mermaid image called Swimming Around from Polkadoodles. I decided to turn her upside down as if she was floating around in the ocean...
The colours I used were:
Skin: 4101, 4115, 4125, 4150, 4170, 4180, 3105, 3110, cheeks 4135, 4145
Pinks: 5110, 5125, 5130, 5160, 5180
For extra shading in the pink areas 3210 smoke (I often use this for shade, it has a nice warm tone without being too dark, I find it works with almost any colour)
Ocean - 8210, 8220, 8230 and lots of bender and Graph'It Mixing palette (my 8210 ran out halfway through so I had to do a lot of palette mixing to finish my background) 
White Graph'it Shake pen for dots and Mix'It fluid for larger bubbles.  See more on my blog HERE
I think the team have really rocked their colouring this week!
