Sepia Effect Image with Promarkers

Hi all
When looking at Passion for Promarker Workshops the other day I came across on a tutorial on how to do a sepia effect, so decided to try it out on this lovely Sarah Kay Stamp, it took a few try's to get the shading right, but i was finally happy with this result.

Promarkers used are (Darkest to lightest) - Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone, Pastel Beige, Satin
The tutorial said to start with lightest colour, which i tried but didn;t like it so i stated with cocoa and built the colours from where i thought the shadows were then covered the whole image with satin to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
