Stamp Something sketch challenge

Here is the my entry for this weeks challenge over at Stamp Something which is a sketch by Katharina, the fabby prize up for grabs is a gorgeous stamp from Katharina's online shop Whiff of Joy.
The stamp is from Funky Kits, coloured with watercolour pencils, not too happy with the finished result, it was quite late when I finished this, don't remember it looking this patchy then! This was my second attempt, the first I tried colouring with Promarkers and the ink from the stamping bled into the colouring - what ink pads should I use with Promarkers, anyone out there know? I would appreciate your help, am trying to resist the urge to buy copics as they are so expensive but my birthday is coming up soon - have to drop some not so subtle hints!!
How does everyone colour the cheeks so they have a healthy glow, when I try to do it they end up looking like they have 'slapped cheek' LOL.
Papers from a Dovecraft pack, ribbon and star embellishment from Poppicrafts.

Hi Sam,
Love the card and image is great.
With regards to Copics, De has left a web address that gives a tutorial on them. It's on the SBS21blog - 24th September. It tells you which to buy and how to use them. As for buying them try They are cheaper there than anywhere else I've found and free postage.
