Wowsers! that is amazing. your coloring is jaw dropping. And what a cute image...congrats on winning it.
Thanks for playing with "Auburn" hair this week at The ABC Challenge. Hope to see you Wednesday for the next challenge.

Tonje said...

Love your blogg and your coloring. I have almost all pro markers only 7 I dont have. But have never used them. Cause I feel so clumsy in with color that blends. Now I have invested in copics so I hope that I will use them more, but now when I see all the beautiful coloring in your blog and with all the colors that you have used, then maybe my Pro Markers will come out again...
Really apreciate following your blog.
Love from Norway ;);)

Hi ya, another gorgeous card - but more importantly - Torchwood? Have I found another Torchwood / Dr Who fan? I'm the only one in our house who likes either of those! Really hope you watch because you like, not that you're made to! I think Torchwood is a bit of the wall this time, but still good! Sarah
