This is the the first time i have ever tried doing a dark skin, when i was is hospital for my 8 day stay the other week i met a very nice indian lady who had 2 young girls, we got talking about cards and she said that it wasn't very often you got a darker skin childrens cards, so i thought i would have a go at doing one. probably totally wrong but here's my attempt. I am still trying to play catch up have been at hospital 3 days this week and one day we were there 8 hours tied up in different departments all day and then the consultant had gone home as we were too late going through some of the tests and then to top it all off went back on the ward for the steroid infusion to be told it was now out of hours, no doctors left on ward so we had to do the 60mile round trip again to have it done yesterday. Have to now go back every wednesday for next 3 weeks then christmas eve and 3rd January, so please forgive me for being late with everything.
The image is Rosie from Funky kits over at Sugar Nellie, Colored with promarkers, Papers by kanban and Kaisercraft, Flowers from hobbycraft, Holly leaves signature die by Joanna sheen and snowflakes i seem to have had in craftroom stash forever..
