First for Everything

I realized, sadly, that I always color my images with the same E00, E11, E13 combo for their skin.

My friend Trina, and fellow crafter, is amazing with her Copics - especially with coloring African-American skin tones.  Click here to go to her blog and check out it out for yourself!

I'm always in awe after leaving her blog wondering how it is she does it.  Well luckily for me, she listed the Copic combo that she used on one of her cards which gave me the incentive and inspiration I needed to give darker skin a try!!!  Thanks Trina :D

This little cutie is from The Greeting Farm and I just love her!!  I used the DCWV The Citrus Stack Collection and some orange glossy cardstock from an old Martha Stewart The Essentials Collection, which worked perfectly together.  There are some flowers from my stash, and some new Goosebumps from Queen & Co. in lime green.  In the corner, I stamped off a sentiment from the Cardmaking & PaperCrafts Special Occasion stamp set in Rich Cocoa by Memento.

The Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm this week is to use Punches and/or Dies.  

Hope you'll whip yours out and play along! Have a great day everyone!
