Friday Sketchers - Sketch 24 by Heidi

This week over on Friday Sketchers there is a fab sketch provided by Heidi. For my card I used one of the new Pink Collection from Magnolia, which finally arrived from Sweden this morning. They made mistake with my order and sent me 2 stamps incorrectly...although I now have one of the new Christmas 2008 stamps before they are available....and have just ordered the missing one from a UK store. Anyway, back to my card, for the first time I have tried my hand at colouring a different skin tone, and for a first attempt I am really pleased with it. The stamp is Tilda in Striped Tights coloured with my ProMarkers using the following colours...
Cinnamon (Skin)
Umber (Hair)
Rose Pink (Hairband, Dress & Tights)
Pastel Blue (T-Shirt & Shadow)
Cinnamon (Bench)
I have used Kelly Pannaci papers and stickers by Sandylion, ribbon by Stampin' Up and American Craft.
