 (**there must be at least 6 UK entries for this prize to be allocated otherwise this prize is null and void)

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
Wow! 
I think the team have really rocked their colouring this week! 

Our winners from Week 18 are:
Random Winner chosen by Random.org

Wk 18 - Anything Goes - Craft Colouring challenge

Welcome back to a new challenge! 

Our challenge for you today is


ANYTHING GOES


Closing date: Fri 5TH AUG, winners announced on 12th Aug.
You can use any colouring medium you like to enter, you don't have to use our products!
You can enter ANY kind of make you like, whatever colours you like and your project can be anything you want, it's up to you.
The winners of our last challenge are at the bottom of this post....
This week we are sponsored by the fabulous store


Our random winner of this challenge will receive a $12 Gift card for the Day for Daisies store
- they have some great images so head over to the Shop.

We also have a set of lovely Graph'It markers** to give away to one UK winner randomly selected  (**there must be at least 5 UK entries for this prize to be allocated otherwise this prize is null and void)
Make sure you check out our blog candy HERE


So let's go and see what the Design Team have made - the DT have used these colours as inspiration

Nikky...Gold and silver snowman? Tricky! ...
But not really if you take advantage of all the white space and really keep to a few colour tones to keep it simple.
My image is Mr Snowman here. I used 9500,9501, 9502, 9503, 9505 for the silver and the snowman and the snow itself, and 1210, 1230, 1250, 3150 for the gold. PLUS my Graph'It Shake white pen which is a real musthave for me, i can't live without this pen, in fact I have about 10 lol. I'd have liked a little more shimmer and shine on his coat and tie and I wish now in retrospect I'd used a Warm or pink grey over the gold as it would have made it more bronze but he's looking cool in his gold finery I think.

Scatty Jan I love Christmas although the day I chose to make my tag it was so very hot and sunny it did not seem right. For my tag I used the cute image Candy Elf B, you can find him in the store right here. After I had coloured up I gave my tag a little spray of iridescent sparkle in real life it really has come alive
Colours used
2130 , 1230, 4110, 1210
9505
4150, 4125, 4145, 3120

Colours used:
Skin: 3105, 4150, 4115, 4105
