First Attempt At Dark Skin Tones

I should be in bed right now...but just have to share this card first!

Has anyone noticed my girl image cards? I never colored dark skin before! Well, this is my first attempt at it. Please tell me what you think! It took me a while to get it right! What colors do you guys use when coloring dark skin tones?

Oh, do you know over the weekend, I have the hardest time coloring my images? I didn't realize I usually use somewhat the same colors ALL the time! So you can kind of guess what happened, right? Yup, a lot of my markers are pretty much out of ink! I'll have to get a couple of refills at a time. I have been spending way too much on craft items this past year.

Anyway, this is my entry for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday and Copic Creations, which is to color blakc hair. I used all scraps on this card. Yeah, I am pretty determine to use up my scraps.

Okie dokie, off to bed for me. It's going to be a long day at work tomorrow...I mean today! LOL
