African Queen

Our new artist at Digistamps4Joy is Tanya O'Connor and she drew this gorgeous digi called "Strong Lady 1". When I first saw it I saw an African lady so have attempted to colour a darker skin - not easy! If you purchase this digistamp, both Tanya and I will donate part of the proceeds to the Cancer Association of South Africa, so indirectly you are also donating to CANSA. Cancer affects anyone, no matter your skin colour, and I thought by colouring this digi in with an African skin, it would pay tribute to all our African sisters who also have been battling this disease.
I coloured her in with a combination of Copic pens and Spectrum Noire pens, added the requisite bling (of course!), and mounted it on 2 papers that I found in my stash that I thought have a slight African feel to them.

New items used - digistamp
Old items used - BP, brown cardstock, white pastel pencil for highlights.
