TRYING to colour dark skin:-)...

Hello all! I hope you are well? Just a quickie post from me to share the card I would like to enter in a few challenges, before it is too late:-)!!! It is the first time I have tried to colour darker skin (and frizzy hair), and I have come to 2 conclusions: firstly, I need to practise (for both), secondly I think I have to buy more Copics! I am not satisfied, but here is my card anyway...
Bonsoir! Rapidement une petite carte pour participer à plusieurs challenges:-) C'est la première fois que j'essaie de colorier la peau dans des tons plus foncés (et des cheveux crêpus) et je suis parvenue à 2 conclusions: premièrement il faut vraiment que je m'entraîne (pour les 2) et deuxièmement il faut que j'achète des Copics en plus, il me manque des couleurs:-)! Je ne suis pas satisfaite, mais voici quand même le résultat de mes essais...

I first coloured a Mini Tilda to try the darker skin tones, then I decided I would try on a large face, more difficult obviously but it seemed the right thing to do to play in the challenge, that's why I chose that stamp.
The image only and recipe...

Stamps: Summer and Blush Hello by the Greeting Farm
Copics: (for the skin) E00, 11, 31, 33, 35, 37, G000 (no G20:-(...)
MS punch, EK Success Retro Flower Punches
Ribbon and gems from stash
