Wk 16 - P = Peculiar Colouring challenge sponsored by Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils

Welcome back to a new challenge...

Our lovely challenge is here to help inspire you to try out Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils - if you've never tried these amazingly lush pencils then check out all the links at the top of the page to find out more. They are top quality pencils which need minimum blending - if you're a Polychomo/Prisma fan you really need to check them out because we have all switched from those brands because we find Lyra's much faster to work with, easier to blend and superb colours and lightfastness that is superior to most of the others on the market - and they're an amazing price too!


Basically we want to see PRETTY OR PECULIAR, whatever you like, it's up to you! It could be pretty papers, a pretty image, peculiar colours - the choice is yours! 
You can enter the challenge with ANY project you like as long as you 
have coloured an image with ANY medium  (pencils, markers, inks, paints, whatever you like).
Remember you can only enter twice!

This week we are very kindly sponsored by the fabulous Concetta Kilmer from Enchanted Design Studio - we love her whacky images they're fabulous! 

Our very generous sponsor is kindly giving away 3 of her lovely images to our Random Winner of this challenge so make sure you add to Linky! 
The design Team were challenged to use PECULIAR COLOURS this week so let's see what they came up with...

Jane – Hi everyone!  My ‘peculiar’ colour combo is orange and blue with a touch of pink and green (!!), and the recipient of this odd group is this fabu-lush image called CINDERELLA’S FOLLIES. Isn’t it amazing, so much detail and so much fun to colour!
Colours used:
Skin: 92, 89, 31, 32 and 28 for cheeks
Orange: 17, 15, 13, 9
            Pinks: 93, 27, 29
            Greens: 65, 63, 62
Background: 99

Cara  - Hiya, my image this week is a the Turtle Colouring Page. Now I must admit I really struggled to think of a peculiar colour combo, i'm so used to putting colours that work together I just could not do it .... take a  look what do you think??
Colours used:
Purples 36,38,39
Blues: 53,54
Yellow: 09,08,06
Grey: 96,97

Nikky....This was a struggle because I'm such a routine kinda gal with my colours so I just decided to pick some random strong colours out and go with the flow...I didnt get around to making a card, I'm saving this one just for the right person...this amazing image is HERE

Colours used: 85 light ochre, 09 orange yellow, 13 lt orange
18 scarlet lake, 68 moss green, 53 peacock blue
37 blue violet
I also added the white dots using Graph'It Shake white marker and used the blender pencil a little on the background. I coloured this on Polkadoodles Ultimate Graphic 160gsm paper.

So there we have it, this week's inspiration!
