Ballerina Aperture card Challenge # 26

So excited when I saw the theme for Digi Choosday challenge this week, I knew straight away the image I wanted to use. The ballerina and all the papers are from Work & Play 2, as is the ticker tape which comes as individual sentiment tickets, but I've adapted it into a strip using Craft Artist and coloured with Pan Pastels.

The image has been coloured with a mix of Promarkers for the hair and tutu and I've used Graph it markers for the skin, I love the colouration they give.
