Simply Sassy:WOW #2

Ok, so, after my card yesterday for the SS competition, I got an idea for another one and had to give it a shot! If you need more info go here. Once again, the prize up for grabs is this...








...and to top that off a spot on the NEW Simply Sassy DT...the grand is nice, but I'd really love that DT spot!! Let's not forget that the finalists also get to chose 12 Sugar Nellie stamps for their very own!!



Ok, here's my card...





The thing I was interested in doing with this image was darker skin and hair, something I really don't do very often. I've colored her with copics E33,13,&11...my first time using this combo, what do you think, does it work?? I will tell you that although I don't do dark skin often I've found it helpful to do the cheeks first...more can be added later if needed, but it offers more control and it works much better for me on dark skin.



She's a little dark here, but the lighting is kind of poor at midnight, lol. I've used the purples V:000, 01, 12,15, & a little 17. I've put stickles on her shoes and a little on her dress and rhinestones were added with my I-rock. The background shading is done with chalk. Ok, well I think that's about it. Thanks for stopping by. Remember to stay tuned in case I make it to the next round cause at some point I may need your votes.
Have a great day!
