GIC26: Pink with a pattern

Hi everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at the Graph'it Markers blog and it's the turn of Team B to provide you with some Graph'it inspiration! Our challenge this week is PINK WITH A PATTERN

I decided to use this really cute Sew and Sew digital stamp, illustrated by Emma Canning for Polkadoodles:

Graph'it Markers
Skin: 4180 4155 4115 4125 4120 Blush: 4135 4145
Hair: 3250 3245 3210 4110
Skirt: 8220
Pink Fabric: 5230 5130 5120 0000
Sewing Machine: 4110
Shading: 9503 9500 0000

I coloured the piece of fabric she is sewing in pink and then added a polka dot pattern using my blender pen.  I also decided to paper piece her shirt to match the background paperr.

I used the *NEW* brush nibs in three of the markes I used to colour her hair (3250 3245 3210).  Until now I have only added brush nibs to a few of the skin colours that I use, as I find I can achieve great blending using the bullet nibs and have therefore felt no need to swap all my chisel nibs to brush nibs.  However, I am really pleased with how fine I was able to make the strands of hair using the brush nibs, so I think I will invest in a few more packs and swap the chisel nib for a brush nib in the markers I like to use for different hair colours!

So now it's your turn to get creating! You have until Sunday 29th December 2013 at noon GMT to enter our Pink with a Pattern challenge. As always, there is an awesome prize up for grabs and the lucky winner of this challenge will be announced on the blog on Friday 3rd January.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
