Truely Scumptious Sketch Challenge and Simon Says 24 hr Challenge

Hi all hope you are enjoying world card making day whatever you are doing!!
I have made this card for the Truely Scrumptious Sketch Challenge.

I am also going to enter this for Simon Says 24hr Challenge which you can see details for here.

This is my first attempt at a new colouring technique which I found here.
It is using my trusty promarkers and also my polychromos and sansodor, I love my promarkers but sometimes I want a more subtle effect and as hard as I try I cannot get on with distress inks...they just don't do what I want them too!!!

The darker skin was a bit of a mistake but I have been trying for ages to get a good effect with darker skin and I an quite pleased with this one.

Here is a close up of the image click picture to see better.

I will defiantly be practising this technique some more.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
