My very first darker skintones image - Mo's Dreamteam Blog Hop - Shells choice - Glitter + Create4fun challenge sketch

Thanks for scrolling down for my card for the Mo's Dreamteam Blog Hop, you should have arrived from the fabulous Debbie's blog, if not you can hop on over to Shells blog to start at the beginning...it was our teamie Shell's turn to host this months and she chose the theme of Glitter, which gave me the perfect opportunity to use this incredible Mo's Digital Pencil Aashi in a Sari isnt she just stunning...and...my very first go at colouring darker skin and I have to say it was much easier than I thought it would be...I used Distress inks to colour the beautiful Aashi...the skin I coloured using a colour wash of Frayed Burlap, then Walnut stain in the shadows, then a layer of Tattered rose for a little pink and finally a teeny bit of Sugar Rush for a touch of blush...the amazing highly glittered papers (you can see the glitter better on the closeup) are from BoBunny and the spotted is called Jazmyne Dew Drop the striped is Jazmyne Mist and the purple gingham is from Craft Creations, I didnt have any purple gems so coloured white ones with a copic pen and finished with this fabulous mesh glittered ribbon... I used the fabulous sketch from Create4Fun challenge so Im entering this for that challenge...I hope you like it and this is your last stop on the hop but all the images are available now at Mo's Digital Pencil of course...enjoy the rest of your day everyone
