Hey there, Sweet Pea

Okay, I am coming clean.
I have been covetous of Sweet Pea images for quite a while now,
and finally caved in a few months ago and purchased some of these gorgeous ladies.
I have seen Traci, over at Wicked Pixie and Angela, at In My Quiet Time, bring these images to life with their stunning coloring and artistic skills, and I had to try my hand as well.
Mt first attempts were futile. My coloring really wasn't up to par for these images.
But, with a bit of practice and close-up viewing of other's coloring, I think I've got it!
This is "Purple Woods", by Ching-chou Kuik.
I went for the whole monochromatic color scheme which happens to be the challenges over at Kaboodle blog, and Copic Creations this week.
I think she turned out quite nice.
I used mainly the Violet family of Copics, and added some Primas, and some
Stardust Stickles.
