A new challenge at Graph'It Markers

Good morning folks, phew Friday at last and after a manic week at work I'm well ready for the weekend and some playtime in my craft room. We've got a new challenge over at Graph'It Colouring Challenge this week and our theme is 'Anything Goes' but as always Nikky likes to keep the DT on their toes so she challenged us to have a go at colouring dark skin tones. As always there's a fab prize up for grabs and don't forget you can use any markers to enter and be in with a chance of winning!

Eeek, that was a challenge but I had a lot of fun messing around with different colour combinations and came up with this one using one of the gorgeous digital images from Lavinia Stamps. The background was made with Memento Inks and a stamp from chocolate Baroque. I've framed the image with a spellbinders die cut and a couple of die cut /dry embossed hearts. Here's another pic of the image

To finish off I've added lae, ribbon and a little resin bouquet of flowers.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspiration: anything goes/ ribbon
Cuttlebug Mania: all you need is love
My time to craft: all about the love
Paper Nest Dolls: anything goes
Scribble and Scrap: anything goes

Wel I'm heading off to work now, have a good day and thanks for popping by
