Alcohol Markers - Picking Them Up Again

It’s cold outside and the roads around my old house are still covered in ice, I have no interest in going out in that so I’ve grabbed my cup of coffee and retreated into the cove. 
  Its been a quite a while since I’ve sat down and did some stamping and coloring with my alochol markers. So long in fact I had to breakout my cheat sheets for color combos. Since Valentines Day is coming I had to pick out one of my favorite C.C. Designs stamps and Dies, “Rose”’. I color her every year. Sometimes she even ends up on a card to be sent out. Typically I lean towards purples, pinks amd turqouise for her.
Last Few Years
I started out stamping my image on 110Lb white cardstock, using my Stamp Perfect; stamp positoner and memento tuxedo black ink. After I completee my coloring I used my Cuttlebug and the matchng die to cut her out. I deliberately went a differrnt route with her this year. While Im not 100% certian of the color combo I used over all I think shes still a cutie. Using my Spectrum Noir markers I sat down and spent some quiet time just enjoying the moment coloring away. 
    While it might not seem like it, I used quite a few colors today.  
  Color Combos: Hair - GR10 and GR8 Skin - TN2, FS3, FS2, and PP3 Leaves - CG2 and CG1 Roses and Shirt - CR11, CR10, and CR8 Dress, Headband and Tights - BG4, BG2, BG1 Shoes - BG4, BG2, BG1 and a white gel pen   While I do not have all the Spectrum Noir markers I do enjoy the ones I have.
