Truly Scrumptious - Challenge 12

Its taken me ages to get back into the swing of things since I came back from holiday - which is nearly a month ago now. But I've finally got back into doing some challenges. I always take a note of the challenges at Truly Scrumptious, but very rarely get round to doing them. But I really liked the look of the fab sketch by Heather this fortnight, so really wanted to give it a try.

I didn't feel the need to tweak the sketch at all, its perfect just the way it is, and I managed to use pearl beads as the additional challenge this time round - I've coloured them with Maroon promarkers, which worked out far better than I expected.
The image that I've used is one of the new Manga Kids from Sugar Nellie (which are back instock today) I bought a couple today, but the image I've used was sent to me by my boss at Passion for Promarkers - so thankyou Gina, hope I've done it justice xx I also chose what would sound like a strange colour combination - Cool Aqua and Maroon, but I think it works quite well, it shows off the Manga Girl quite well - what do you think?
Image: Manga Girl #2 from Sugar Nellie, coloured with Promarkers; Ivory & Blush for skin, Cool Aqua and Sky Blue for hair, tights and sleeves, Maroon for bow, top and boots, Ice Grey 3 for shading on tights. Sakura white med gel pen for highlights
Paper is CCSR - the big one, core'dinations blue gemstone card, black SU cardstock, ovals cut using oval and scallop oval nesties in the cuttlebug, flowers cut using EK Success retro flower punches and embossed, kanban paper lace ribbon coloured with black promarker, pearl beads coloured with maroon promarker and I hand-doodled the sentiment.
Here's the close-up...

Further to my previous comment - did I mention how much willpower I've got? No, despite my best efforts to convince me I should wait, I found myself on the FK website and before I knew it 3 of the little devils had hopped into my shopping cart LOL! Can't wait to receive them...
