Black Hair Challenge - Graph'it Marker Blog

Woooooo Hoooo thank god it's Friday ...if i had to do another day at work i swear all that would have been left of me would have been a puddle where i melted under my desk!

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Graph'it Marker Blog and this week we would like to see you colour black hair with your markers .... and remember....


So here's what I did:

The digi, papers and butterfly were all from the new and totally delicious Bonbon Belles CD by Polkadoodles, the colours and images on here are fantastic and work so well with the Graph'it Markers.

As I dont have the full range of Greys in my collection (yet) I decided to go a little different and try my hand at Ombre hair!

It's not perfect but I had a load of fun trying it and I must say i'm really tempted to try other colour combo's now too.

(Sorry but I did mark down the colours I used but then sent the card off to boss lady Nikky - I will try harder next time to keep a list - i promise)

I would love if you would join us over at our challenge ... as always there is fantastic prize up for grabs - £30 in goodies this week Wowza!!!

Before I go I have a little bit of news...

I'm sad to say that I have made the tough decision to step down from my other DT commitments, I have recently started a new job and have a lots of personal issues going on in my life.

I have worked with the wonderful team over at the Pink Gem challenge for a while now and i have loved every minute.  Janets images are adorable and the ladies on the team are all so kind and welcoming, I would love the thank them for having me.

I would also like to thank Katie at Cuddly Buddly for being so helpful, kind and caring ... it has been a pleasure designing with the awesome products and digi's you have in your store.

Phew ... a little tearful now :-(

Anyhoos i'm off to stand in the fridge for five.

Hugs xx Cara xx
