Make It Dark Skin

I am official away on vacation with the family. I will be back next week to see and comment on all of your gems. Thanks for stopping by.

Warning, I took this photo at night and now matter how I played with the exposure, brightness, and etc in PS, I still look too bright and wonky to me.

This is for the Make it Colourful Challenge - # 28-Colouring Dark Skin. I have seen a few tutorials how to do this, but have never given it a try myself until now. It will, as per usual, take some practice.

This cute little fellow is Tiddly Inks - Going Swimming. I paired him up with Echo Park - Splash collection. The bottom DP, I followed the line of the pattern and layered it over my frame otherwise you wouldn't see the cut out waves.

I tried to colour this little fellow so that he'd have a Budha belly, but I'm afraid he ended up looking like he had man boob's.

I suppose this could also qualifies for Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge #59 Tag or Ticket Me too.
