Shadow Effects Challenge at the Graph'it Marker Blog

Happy Friday all!!!

Today will especially happy for me as it is my birthday!! although I am writing this post on Wednesday evening so I can't tell you what I got just yet but may pop back with an extra post to let you know!

So today it is Team B's turn to give a little bit of extra inspiration for the current challenge over at the newly re-named Colouring Crazy Challenge (previously the Graph'it Marker challenge), this fortnight we would like to see you use your marker to create shadow effects....and remember any markers will do!!!!

Yet again we have some amazing prizes up for grabs so I do hope you can join in!

Here's what I did:

I did get a few early birthday presents from my lovely hubby, he treated me to the rest of the stamps and other goodies from the Gorguss range to complete my collection so I used one of my lovely new stamps and the matching papers.

I used my Grand Decorative oval nesties to cut out the image, I used my Graph'it markers to colour the image and also to create shadows and a background to make her pop of the page a bit more.

For final touches I used my Graph'it Shake white marker to add little dots all over the image and for borders around the card.

I used lace, ribbon and a corner die to finish off the card.

I hope you like it, I really enjoyed making it and finally feel like I am getting back into the swing of this crafting lark again :)

Why not pop over to the challenge to check out my colour list and see the other inspiration from my lovely teamies.
