Graph'it Challenge - Friday 27 June 2014 - Anything goes with a marker

Recently Nikky Hall asked people if they wanted to be Guest Designers over at the Graph'it Challenge.  I entered and I was amazed that I was offered a Guest Design Team position for two challenges.  I chose a challenge in May and my post can be found here and the challenge going "live" today.

I am very sad that my Guest Design Team role has come to an end but I have loved working with a lovely bunch of talented crafters and of course I don't need an excuse to play/craft with my new "love in my life" my Graph'it pens.  As I said last time I never imagined anything could replace my love of Promarkers.  I make my cards solely to sell to raise funds for different charities and therefore I can't have everything craft-wise I would love to have.  I waited and waited and then tried a few and couldn't get over how good they are.  I was amazed at the depth of colour, how well they blended and the cost.  Nikky Hall has also brought out a DVD on tips on how to use them so that has gone on my wish list as everyone can always learn something new.

I have decided that my last Guest Design Team project would be a labour of love as I have made a calendar for 2015 and everytime I look at it I shall remember being part of this Design Team for a few challenges.

The Graph'it Challenge for this fortnight is "anything goes with makers" so that's a nice easy one for you to play along with.

Right are you ready to see what I have made.  I have used lots of different Polkadoodles CDs and some digital stamps along with backing papers from magazines, some of the CDs, what I have been given and some from Wellington Bear.

Backgrounds on some images - 4170, 4180, 7210, Graph'it Silver Sparkle pen
Other elements on the image - 1150, 1170, 3210, 3245, 5240, 5250, 6110, 6120, 8150, 8240, 8260, 8280, white Graph'it pen
Outline of images - 7105, 9101, K (black).

As you can see I have finished off the pages of the calendar with banners, buttons, card candi, dazzlers, decorative paperclip, die-cuts, distress inksembossed backgrounds, fibres, flowers, gems, lace, Pan Pastels, Papermania Glitterations, pearls, peel-offs, ribbon bow, stamped elements, stickers, tissue paper flowers.

It would be lovely if you could pop on over to the Graph'it Challenge and see all the wonderful creations by the Design Team.
