Love playing with new skin tones...

Hello again,

I love taking inspiration from fellow crafters, especially different colour combinations for my markers.  We all approach our colouring in a different or slightly different way, creating our own style, so when we see a tutorial or a design that we just swoon at we love to take a peek at the colours used and write them in colour journals (yes, the ever growning book where I write down all my combo's)....

So here's one of my latest combo's based on an awesome tutorial by  
Using HB2 SPECTRUM NOIR in my skin tones...

Here's all the bits you need to know:
Inspiration: Adding Skin Shades with HB2 by Dilyana
Link for you to check out the tutorial and give it a go: 
Image: Little Darlings, Dollhouse Precious Dolls, Wings
(I wanted her to be summery but with subtle colour tones, a different interpration of Summer, half light brings such fab tone's to my garden which  was the inspiraton here) x

Spectrum Noir Markers:
Skin: FS1, 3, 7, HB2
Hair: EB6, 7, 8, True Black
Dress: GB4, 6, 7, 9
Wings : JG1, 5, 6, 7, GG2

  8. Woo- whoot! Congrats on your top three at Art by Miran for this card Sandie! Another one of yours that I can't fully appreciate until I enlarge it to see all the detail you put into it! LOve the out-of-the-box layers you used, the Fran-tage and the wonderful tiny white dots that make the image almost shimmery-magic like! Kudos!
