Summer Sunshine at Graph'It Colour Challenge

Good morning, Friday at last and its time for a brand new challenge over at Graph'It colour challenge and this week our theme is 'Summer Sunshine' so we want to see you use your yellows and oranges. You don't have to use Graph'It markers to enter, any alcohol markers will do but once you've tried Graph'Its you'll be hooked lol. As always there is a fab prize from Premium Art Brands and Polkadoodles for our lucky winner so pop over to the challenge blog and check out all the details (and of course see the gorgeous projects my teamies have created. 

I've used one of the fab images from the PolkaDoodles CD DigiStamp Heaven. I don't usually use yellows and oranges but the Graph'It range is fab so it makes a lovely change to use these zingy colours. I've used
Hair: 3210, 1270, 1130, 1210
Skin: 4180, 4155, 4115, 4125 and 4110
Dress: 1250, 1180, 1150, 1140 and 1110
Dog: 2130, 2120 and 2105
Grass: 8260, 8250, 8240

Isn't she adorable? I wish I looked as glamorous when I'm walking my dogs lol

I added a cloudy sky using PanPastels and some grass in the background. I've added a punched fence as a border, a seam binding bow. The daisy was made with Maimeri Light modelling paste using a silicone mould and coloured with Graph'It markers. I've layered the image up over a PanPastel background stamped with paw prints.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Digistamps for Joy: make your own embellies
Fitztown: make your own flowers
Paper playtime: lots of yellow
Papertake Weekly: anything goes

Well I'd better scoot off to work, have a great day and thanks for popping by
