Bellariffic Friday - Monochromatic

It's Bellariffic Friday!  This week the challenge was to make a monochromatic card.  I started out really well and determined to do a white card because I LOVED this card that LindaBella made - it's stunning!  Well I started on Tuesday and it just wasn't working - I was getting really frustrated.  I was stamping/skyping with Dana and told her I was struggling with a sketch and she suggested Jen's Sketch For You To Try - I'd never done one of her sketches before and it turns out April's sketch was perfect for my image!
I used Kenya Ketto from Stamping Bella.  The patterned paper and the cardstock is Regal Rose from Stampin' Up.  I used copics to colour her but, oops,  forgot to take a photo of them (the usual E000, E00, R01 for her skin, 100 for her hair and R81, 83 and 85 for the pinks).  I was quite pleased with my shading on this card.  A little sparkle on her wand, some baubles and Kenya was done.  Monochromatic cards are super fast to do!
