Here is my take on the challenge:
My card base and mats are SU Not Quite Navy and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Oxford collection. The image is Anastasia from Make it Crafty. I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored in two color families with my Copics. It was a little scary doing the skin in these tones! The abstract background was created by dabbing on some of the colors using Copic refills on a cotton ball, then dripping a little Colorless Blender onto the background to make it more diffuse. I could definitely use some practice, but I didn't think it was too bad for a first try. I kept the rest of the card design very simple, just adding some two-tone ribbon in the same colors and a few pearls from my stash.
Here is a close-up of the image:
Blues: B000, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Greens: YG000, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG25, YG67, G99
