Right now over to Emma for a great tutorial, enjoy! 
For my tutorial today I am using the ''Fishing Friends'' image from Pixie Dust Studio. I have printed onto Stampin Up Whisper White card stock using my Epson Stylus Printer.
When colouring with my promarkers I tend to follow the same technique...colour the area in the lightest shade, add a thick line all round the edges with a darker shade then a thinner line again round the edges with the darkest shade I am using. To blend I go back to the lightest shade and colour the area until I am happy with the finish.
Skin - I started colouring the skin using Ivory,Vanilla & Blush.
I coloured the whole area with Ivory, then went around the edges with a thick line of vanilla followed by a thinner line of Blush. I also created the cheek colour using Blush...
I then used Ivory to blend...

Hair - For the hair I used Satin, Tan & Cinnamon.
Following the same technique - Satin all over, thick line of tan and then a thinner line of Cinnamon...
Then blended using Satin...
Boots - I coloured the boots using Cool Grey 1 & 3 plus Ice Grey 5... Dungarees - Pastel Blue, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg and Agean for the buttons... Shirt - Lime Green, Pear Green & Moss
Patch & Bucket - Lipstick Red & Ruby...
Then to add the finishing touches to my image I coloured all round the outer edge with Cool Grey 1, added highlights using a Uni-Ball Signo white pen and used a Sakura Gelly Roll 'Clear Star' pen to add a bit of shimmer to the fishing line and bucket.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and remember to check back on Tuesday when I will be using this image on my challenge card.
Hugs Emma x
