One Small Gelato!

How many of you have heard of Penny Blossom? So that's what I thought, not many - well do yourself a favour and follow the link to check out this new kid on the block!

Christine from Penny Blossom gave this away as a freebie, wow!

Isn't she just fabulous! I have never coloured dark skin and to tell the truth have always been scared to try! I have seen some images that have been coloured for dark skin and they don't look so good and I would hate to produce something that was a parody of the skin colour I was trying to portray! So I had a little play around with colour blends and decided this was OK!

I coloured her with Promarkers and her hair with Spectrum Noir markers. I teamed her up with some Paper Cellar paper and some die cut lace (Spellbinders) I also used some paper lace for the top that I inked to match the orange in her top. Then I just added some bling and WOC orange roses!

So what do you think - did I crack the skin colour?

Sign up for the newsletter at Penny Blossom and when Christine has a freebie you will find out!  While you're there check out her shop and see the cool digis she has just waiting for you!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
