Passion for Promarkers - Not the final cut

It looks like I'm just showing all my rejects this weekend lol. This is another cards that didn't make the final cut. I chose these images as I thought they would be good for showing off the colouring with promarkers, and I was going to use it for the first challenge over at Passion for Promarkers... BUT, although I'm reasonably happy with the images, I just couldn't get the card to work. I seem to be having a bit of mojo-freeze at the moment.

Images: Charlotte's Horse and Queen Charlotte by Alison Acton @ Whiff of Joy, coloured with promarkers: Horse; sandstone, cinnamon, cocoa, shale, moss, olive and holly, spice and terracotta, Queen Charlotte: Ivory, Blush, cinnamon, cocoa, maroon, moss, olive, meadow green and apple. Shadow is warm grey 1 and 3. Highlights are all sakura gelly roll med, and clear stardust

Pale and mid green card is all core'dinations, the mid green was embossed using the cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder and sanded. I used a metallic green sakura gel pen to doodle faux stitching round the edges.

Greeting is Daisy & Dandelion, Papermania clear shimmer dots

Awwww, wish I could colour like you, still trying to get to grips with promarkers. Think I've been using H20's for too long.
Your tones are lovely on this card and the colours really do look amazing.
Happy crafting

Your colouring in this image is fantastic!
I do not think there is anyone out there that can make an image look so 3D as you do!
So looking forward to seeing you next weekend

The colouring on the horse is brilliant :). Can you add something elsewhere on the card to echo the purple colour from Charlotte? That might make itlook even better
