Ice Princess card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I printed this gorgeous image from Hannah Lynn (Crafts and Me) in a washed out shade (about 25%) so I could try my hand at no lines colouring. I have only done this a few times before but I feel like practice makes perfect so I must keep trying. I can't believe how beautifully some people can do this technique on Youtube, I love watching the videos. With the background of the image I just went around her flicking out with my black Copic marker but not all the way to the edge of the circle and then I used a pink Copic marker to flick inwards from the circle edge. I added some white gel pen to give the impression her dress is sparkling.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
