A new card after a lesson on colouring

It was the fabulous Katy's card class on Monday and she gave us a little lesson on colouring. Katy now uses copics whereas I have promarkers so I was grateful for the hints and tips she provided. She gave me this fab image from Mos digital pencil shop and having visited there I'm glad today is payday so i can go a little mad and purchase some of the digi stamps.
These papers are old ones - double sided so they work well either side. Cant remember the collection name but they are I think at least 2 years old!
Although the colouring is still not up to Katy's I am quite pleased with the outcome. Ive gently smudged the edges with raspberry adirondack ink and added ribbon from my stash. The doily lace edge punch from Martha Stewart and card candy from craftwork cards finish the look. This should have reached its destination now as part of a Rak swap.

Ive got more cards to make today so am going to have a play with my prisma pencils and see if i can transfer any of the tips Katy gave me!
Have a fab day xx
