Sketchy Saturday Part 2 - Smudgefest Day 6 of 7

I'm back with another sketch project for day 6 of Smudgefest.
I'm not sure if it is allowed to post a second project or not during Smudgefest, but I wasn't very happy with my first attempt and I didn't see anything in the rules stating we couldn't post more than one project so here is my sketch #2.
Click image to enlarge.

This project feels a lot more like me.  I can't really explain it.  Anyway, I stamped this really awesome RSD image which can only be purchased through Smeared Ink's Rubber Club.  The set is named "Morte" and is totally worth a buy!  It comes on a sheet of 8.5" x 11" deeply etched red rubber.  Below is a pick of the whole set and here is a link to the Rubber Club.

I stamped the image with Memento ink in black and colored with my copic markers.  Does anyone happen to know why the darker colors like black and dark browns tend to get gummy?  If so, let me know.  Anyway, I scanned the image to my pc as I wanted to use more of my favorite Crafty Chaos Designs papers, but I am almost out of ink so I couldn't print the digi papers out.  This paper combo was a bit of "Elizabeth Remembers" as well as a bit of "Elizabeth Forgets".  Last I checked, the shoppe is retired.  I can always hope Susan CC will reopen one day or perhaps teach me how she makes such awesome paper.  
Below is a pic of the sketch we had to follow.  I think I came pretty close to getting it correct.  I just used my focal image instead of the thin rectangle and I didn't add the super thin line going down the right side of the sketch.

Once again, I hope it is okay to post a second project.  Heck, I'm just psyched that I finished two projects before midnight!  Hooray...early to bed for me! know you are getting old when you are happy to be in bed early.
