Dark Skin tones with Graph'it Markers

Hello all i'm here with my DT card for the Graph'it Marker Colouring Challenge.

Now this week we (the poor DT) have been challenged to colour dark skin tones with our lovely pens ... you on the other hand can enter as long as you have colour Dark Hair with any markers!!!

So easy peasy for you guys right????.

Now I must warn you that this was my first ever attempt at colouring darker skin ... and while there is lots and lots of room for improvement (really there is loads) I'm still pleased I gave it a try - dont be too hard on me when you see it ... i'll be hiding under the table if you want me :)

I used this adorable image from Krista Smith called Jumper (sorry guys I couldn't find her in the shop to give the link)

The papers were from my scraps box and I used my Grand nesties to create the shaped card blank.

The sentiment is a new one from Stampin' Up.

I hope you like it, I would love to see you join our challenge this week!

Hugs xx Cara xx
