Dare To Be Different -- for Coloring Without Boundaries

I'm posting today for Coloring Without Boundaries,  using a super fun digi, "Tori - Dare to be Different", by Heather Valentin.

Here's a coloring tutorial on how I got that wild hair, using Copic markers!

I'll start with her skin tones: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21
There's a bit of R20 on her cheeks, and R21 & R22 on her lips...

Now, for the wild hair!  I started with my darkest color first - B99:

Then, I added B93, and RV 29

Next, V04 and RV25 are added.

 The last 2 colors I added were C01, and RV21.  

I decided she needed a bright outfit, too.  I used:
Gloves -- YG11, YG13, YG17
Sweater -- R11, RV32, RV34, E04, brightened with RV21 & RV23
Jacket/pants -- YR14, YR18, E15, E18
stripes -- YG11, YG15, YG17
Shoes -- B21, B23, B26, B28, YG11, YG13, YG17
Bricks -- E50, E31, E33, E34

All that's left is the skateboard and letters.  Better make it colorful!
Skateboard -- B00, B01, B04, B06
Heart -- R20, R22, R27, R29
Wings -- Y04
Wheels -- Y06, Y08, Y28
Letters -- FYG2, FYG1, FY1, FYR1

And, here is Tori - Dare to be Different  made into a card --
