First attempt at colouring dark skin

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a fab weekend.
This is my first attempt at colouring darker skin and I hope it is ok.
It was made for someone leaving at work so I hope they like it....

The card is made using the fab Alice from Saturated Canary.
I have coloured her with copics and used stitching.  The heart doily is from ebay.  The ribbons are from my stash.  The rosettes are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Polka Dots
Stamping with the Dragon - Anything Goes

Hi Catherine, love the colouring - she looks great with darker skin tones.

Love your overall colour combo as well - the blacks with pink works wonderfully.

PS - Are you entering it into the Saturated Canary Challenge blog? The theme this fortnight is punches/dies and I see you've used a die.
