    I’ve not quite mastered coloring black hair but I wanted to challenge myself by entering this challenge.
    Love all the samples by the DT!

    What a great challenge! Having black hair myself, I use this color on hair more than anything!

    What a great challenge as always. I always, always learn something new here. I didn’t have a C9 or W9, so I improvised. You’ll have to check it out –, 04/18/10 post.

    fabulous creations! linked mine up

    Omg! These cards are AMAZING!!!
    The coloring is so intense and eye-catching!
    I would seriously loveee to participate… unfortunately I am still very new to the “Copic World”. So i’m afraid I need some more practice before I attempt to color black hair.
    But I love all of the fabulous work on this blog and I will check back for inspiration! 🙂

    phew..this one took a few tries but was so fun to go out of my comfort zone and try, thanks ladies!

    OH WOW!!! These colored images are quite INCREDIBLE with your amazing coloring skills here! WOW!! You are ALL completely intimidating for little me (who doesnt like to color). But I love to see what You all create. 🙂

    Some great tips there. I have linked up my card. Thanksfor a great challenge.

    This was quite a challenge and I destroyed a few images totally trying to get the hair to look right. I was fairly satisfied with this one. I think this is going to take lots of practice! It will be nice to occasionally make an image have black hair. My next challenge after that will be red. I appreciated all the help from all the dt. Just looking at their cards helps soo much. Hugs, Barb F
