Extra FX at Graph'It Colouring challenge

Hi again, I'm playing catch up after a bit of a hectic week. Thank goodness the weekend is here at last! This card is my dt project for our Extra FX Challenge over at Graph'it Colouring Challenge.  You don't have to use Graph'It markers to play along but we do want to see some kind of special effect with your markers, maybe you could create a polkadot effect with your blender pen or perhaps you've got some fun techniques to share with us!! If you need some inspiration pop over to the challenge blog as my teamies have got some amazing techniques to show you!

I'm sooooo loving Nikky's new images over at Polkadoodles!! This one is Octavia Friendly Hugs, of course she is coloured with my beloved Graph'It markers. I used blue pearl panpastel too create the sky and then stencilled in some leaves using Maimeri iridescent paste.

Once the stencilled leaves were dry I added some autumn colours with my Graph'it markers and then spritzed with Mix'it fluid to blend the colours. Pop over to the challenge blog for a full range of colours.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges;
Creative knockouts; animal friends
Digistamps 4 joy; animals 
Pattie's Creations; Autumn colours
Sparkles forum; autumn colours

Thanks so much for visiting today
