Ardelia You're so Special!!!

Hey guys! 

I had an unexpected gathering for my bday yesterday so that's why my post was delayed.
I had a good time just hanging out at home and catching up on some needed gossip lol! jk but nooo yeah there was some done within my sisters and I, lol! We talk about 10 different topics in like 5 minutes and it goes on like that through out the night. It never seems to fail, lol! 

Thanks everybody for the warm wishes on FB and emails :) I didn't realize I had so many friends,YEAAAH!!!!!

sadly I didn't get no new crafting gadgets or anything related to crafting but no worries that will be taken care of come CHA, BAAAHAAAA!!!

All right all right to what I came here for.
I have a new creation which is my turn to share for the MIC store blog

I have the gorgeous Ardelia posing for us today.
I wanted to share how I created an undertone color for her skin and hair.

You could get full details on the MIC store blog under my posting but briefly the way I like to do it is a laying the undertone color first and working your way up (meaning top final layer of color of choice)
for instance on her hair I started with RV69  for the undertone so that went on first. Flickering to the center of the lock.
Next blend out with C3 right on the end of the RV69 color. Then flickering C5 on top of RV69 towards the center again and finally small touches of black for deep shading where you wish. If you don't have black you could always use your darkest C or a dark blue works perfectly too!

and here are a few pictures of the after math.

I hope you could swing by my MIC posting so you could get a full detail on my skin tip I shared there too :) 
Well that's all for me for now and I'll be back before you know it.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me and the lovely comments. 

Have a great week :)
