We're off!! Our first challenge at Graph'It Markers!!

Good morning my lovelies, Friday at last and its a very exciting day as its our very first challenge at the Graph'It Markers Colour Challenge blog and our theme is 'New Beginnings' with a twist you can only use 7 markers (plus skin colours). You don't have to use Graph'It markers but once you've tried them you'll love em!! There's an amazing prize up for grabs, a selection of goodies  from Premium Art Brands and PolkaDoodles worth over £50!! Definitely not to be missed :-)

I've used one of the gorgeous bunnies from the PolkaDoodles Cherry Blossom Lane CD (I told you I'd fallen in love with these cuties!) I've coloured him with Graph'its, I thought it would be a real challenge to use only 7 pens but these makers blend so beautifully it was easy. The colours just melt in to each other and with the Mix'It palette you can mix any inbetweeny shades you need. Here's a closer pic of the image:

These are the markers I've used:

The image is layered up over a doily. The papers are all from Cherry Blossom Lane as is the fab ticket sentiment. I made the bunting in MS publisher, cut it out and popped in on some bakers twine and layered it up with 3d foam pads. I've added some pretty ribbon, little buttons and twine bows, and  a silver boat charm

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: fur or feathers
Crafts and Me: Anything goes
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Fab'n'Funky: doily
MilkCoffee: summer fun
Paper Shelter: buttons/brads
Twisted Tuesday: Nautical with a twist 
(my 7 embellies are charm, two ribbons, twine, buttons, bunting, doily)

I hope you're going to join us for our first challenge, pop over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies gorgeous projects! Have a great day and thanks for popping by
