Jane – Hello, just sneaking in as the newest (and definitely most excited) member of the awesome Pencil Case team!! So proud, astonished and extremely grateful to be here!! Ok so my FUNKY make features the gorgeous PRISCILLA and my take on our theme seems to have taken a rainbow turn!!  These pencils have such an incredible range of colours (I am proud to be the possessor of the 72 piece tin) that it seemed rude not to use as many of the shades as possible!! xxx

Scatty Jan I had lots of fun with funky colours this week - I got to colour up the lovely Aurella , you can find her in the store here . She really is stunning . It was nice to colour with colours I do not normally pick....

Hair - Van D Brown/Raw Umber/ Brown Ochre
Blues Aquamarine/ Night Green / Peacock Blue
Oranges - Light Orange/ Dark Orange/ Orange Yellow
Greens - Light Green/ Sap Green/ Moss Green

Nikky...I chose this PRISCILLA image which is quite Halloweeny but I wanted to colour her up in a non Halloween way which was a little tricky, but this is one of my favourite colour combo's of all time, I just love the retro feel of these colours. Sorry but I didnt get chance to make up a card...
Colours used: Turquoise, Veridian (dress)
Skin: Brown Ochre, light skin, sepia
Greys & Black for stonework etc
Reds = Vermillion
Blues = Peacock
Window = Gold Ochre, Canary yellow, Vermillion, White pencil

Cara I chose the image Without Wings and decided to go completely out there with a fierce colour clashing combination!! I made the skin quite dark otherwise she would have been completely washed out by the bold colours!

Colours used:
Blue: 47,48,51
Orange: 76,21,17,15
Yellow: 87,13,9,8
Hair: 80,82,83

Lou: I chose the image Esmeralda for this challenge and in attempt to try something new with a background, (which subsequently didn't work out), had to go back to the drawing board. I have chose 70's inspired clashing colours for my image.

Skin: gold ochre, brown ochre, venetian red and prussian blue
Hair: light orange, dark orange, prussian blue and dark sepia
