Roses are purple..and blue

I came upon a contest requiring roses to be used in the entry and when I looked at their images they had available - I fell in LOVE!  Head over to The Paper Shelter and check them out!  For this image, I'm using Witching Hour.

I use Spectrum Noir markers to color with and here is a breakdown of my color selections:

Skin: FS1, FS4, FS9, TN3, GB8
Hair: PL1, PL2, IG9, True Black
