Today it’s my turn to share a card for the latest challenge over at the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge Blog!  This time we have a colour challenge for you:

The challenge runs from October 24th – November 12th with a winner being announced on November 13th, so plenty of time to join in!

This month our sponsors are Impression Obsession, and I have had lots of fun working with their stamps, in particular the one I used today (see supply list at the end of the post)!

The image was of course, coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  Full details on the colours used in the pics below!  I stamped the image in a light colour, so that the lines disappeared as I was colouring.  Love the effect and it was certainly a bit of a challenge on this fairly detailed image!
