Sweetheart Birgitta

Hi everyone, Kelli again!  This weeks challenge is to color a skin tone that you don't normally color or one that is out of your comfort zone.  I decided to go with a relatively dark skin tone for this project because it's not something I normally color.  Feel free to head on over to this post to play along!
I used the absolutely adorable Sweetheart Birgitta stamp by C.C. Designs, which I stamped in Memento, Tuxedo Black ink.


I added some darker pink dye ink to her cheeks with a q-tip and then added some little white gel pen freckles which I also do on my lighter skin tones.  I have to tell you too, that I LOVE coloring hair on this stamp.  If you have issues coloring hair, this one would be a great one to practice on.  The areas where the hair bows out and where it comes in are very defined which makes it easy to see where your shadows and highlights need to go.  The patterned background paper is from the Summer Fiesta 6x6 Paper Stack from Wild Rose Studio.

To finish it off I added some awesome Divine Baker's Twine in Cotton Candy with a button, which seems to be my go-to embellishment these days!  I love the look and fun style of the twine.
Thanks for looking!  :)
