Copic Creations DT - Black hair

Welcome!   Our challenge this week is Copic Coloring of Black Hair.   Thank you to everyone who joined us for last weeks’ Flower challenge – We had some really gorgeous submissions!   
We have a VERY special sponsor for this weeks challenge ......The Greeting Farm, and the winner will recieve -  
Your choice of any The Greeting Farm rubber stamp and FOUR Copic markers!  


What I love about Copic Creations is the challenge it sets me and it often takes me out of my comfort zone. This one certainly did - I chose this digi-image (Drummer Boy) from The Greeting Farm - black hair, plus this hairstyle certainly was a challenge and a half.  I have his hair coloured about  6 different ways but decided this was the best. I would have liked to leave more 'white' in the highlighting but when I did it looked as if he had a halo or cap on his head.

 The paper are from my 'old' stash box, the music one I think is Kay&Co. The frame is cut with Spellbinders Foliage frame and the corners with an EKSuccess punch. I added some ribbon and brads at the edges of the frame as I though it looked a little bare, now I'm not so sure - opinions please!!

Heather this is a real treat - I must get my head round copics - but am still working at just getting shading on colouring. Apologies too for referring to you as "Rica" on the blog candy comment. Thanks again for all your inspiration.
