Make It Colourful - Coloring Dark Skin

Our challenge this week at Make It Colourful is coloring dark skin. We're sponsored this week by Crissy's Art and Heart.

I haven't tried coloring dark skin before with Copics, so I looked to Marianne Walker for advice. She has a great post on skin colors with Copics. I used Tilda and put her on Make It Crafty Filigree borders. She fits just perfectly!
Skin E25, E47, E29
Dress BG11, BG13, BG15
Flower, Shoes, present RV21, RV23, RV25
Bow Y13, Y15, Y18
Leaves G14, G12
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
2. Top Tip Tuesday #44 - make it girlie

Happy Coloring!

Lovely. This wasn't an easy challenge, I've never coloured darker skin either. Love all the flowers you added and the repeat green borders.
