Winter Friends,Graph'It Markers & a First Try!

Happy Saturday to you all! Today I have another new Whimsy Wee image to share. and also some DT news. :-) I already shared the news on FB last week so some of you may already know ...I made the Graph'It Marker UK DT - WOOHOOO!! I still can't believe my luck. I officially start on November 1st and my first DT package already arrived this week. I could not resist to start playing. For me it's a bit of a change and I need to get used to these markers as they come with a bullet nib. But there is now also a brush nib available.... that's great news! The brush nib will replace the chisel nib which then gives you a marker with both bullet and brush nib - perfect!!  Can't wait to order me some. But even with the bullet nib I had so much fun coloring with these markers. They are very juicy and blend beautifully. Right now they are only available in the UK and France BUT if you order them at Polkadoodles.com you'll receive free worldwide shipping (over £10!)
This is 'Winter Friends' and was just released this week. It's available as a Digital Stamp HERE and in Whimsy Rubber HERE.

As mentioned before I colored with my new Graph'It markers :-) The papers are from an older MME collection and just fit my image perfectly. Usually I pick my papers first and then I color accordingly to the DP colors. This time just started coloring and was happy to see that the MME fit quite nicely. I already saw me going through my stash of papers for ever to find a match - something I hate to do.... 
The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Letter Seals. Snowflake dies I used are from Spellbinders.

Here are the Graph'It marker colors I've used:

Skin/Cheeks: 4120, 4125, 4155, 4135
