Do you really think you are teaching her that physical violence isn't okay by hitting her? It's rather a confusing message, don't you think? "Hey kid, it's NOT okay to kick your little sister, but it's okay for me to hit you"........
What you did (leaving a mark that needed a cold wipe applied) is the reason spanking is a fine line between discipline and abuse.
You haven't said how old your daughter is, but it is time to find some different tools. Have you tried time out? Have you tried removing privileges? It would be helpful if we knew what you have tried other than spanking.
