Blonde Hair at Graph'It Markers Colour Challenge

Good morning and happy Friday to you, its been soooooo hot at work and exceptionally busy so I'm very happy that the weekend is nearly here. I'll be doing a happy dance all the way home from work (if I've got the strength lol). Anyway today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Graph'It markers and this week we want to see Blonde Hair on your projects, you don't have to use Graph'It markers to enter but we do love it when you do. There are some fab prizes up for grabs so pop on over the the Graph'It Colour Challenge Blog to find out all the deets and see the gorgeous projects from my teamies.

I've used the beautiful mermaid image from the new Bonbon Belles CD from PolkaDoodles, love this cd, the images are fab to colour! Here's a better pic of the image:

Here's a list of the colours I used: 
Hair: 3120, 1250, 1170, 1150,4110
Skin: 4180, 4155, 4115, 4145, 4120, 4110
Blues and greens: 7180, 7170, 7165, 7150, 7140, 7125
and 8220,8250, 8280

The background was created with PanPastels and I added bubbles with cosmic shimmer glue and microbeads. I had a happy accident making the backing paper, when I applied my PanPastels I didn't realise that there were tiny microbeads all over my craftmat and it created a a kind of mottled watery effect when I applied the panpastels. I just added some cheesecloth and some dew drops to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday: Beside the sea
MarkerPOP: lovely locks
