Some Odd Girls - Spectrum Noir Hair Tutorial

I thought I'd drop in with a quick tutorial on how I colour hair using my Spectrum Noir Markers!
I am using the Photo Kaylee Stamp from Some Odd Girl. I used three colours, GB10, GB8 and EB2....
I started with GB10 and laid it down in the parts that I wanted the darkest.  
Next, I laid down the GB8 over the top of the GB10 and dragged some of the darker colour towards the middle.  
Then came the EB2 which was layered over the other two colours, and dragged towards the empty space. I tend to leave small sections uncoloured, to let the white card stock show through, to add 'shine' to the hair as highlights... 
Here is the finished hair... And, the finished image -
Ok, so I cut her all out and popped her on a card -
I used patterned papers from Echo Park, a piece of gathered ribbon, and some paper flowers, and a pin with a piece of twine tied in a bow. The main image panel has a border cut using the MFT Die-namics, Open Bracket Die. The sentiment is from the Photo Kaylee stamp set, and has a few pearls surrounding it... :)
Here is a close up -
I am entering this into the De-constructed sketch challenge, number 62. It's a little difficult to tell, but the sketch is in there. I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge
Deconstructed Sketch No. 62
Hope you liked my tutorial :)
