Nikky...I love East Wind images and when I saw this one called Blow Kiss Lucy Loo (get it here) I immediately wanted to do her in really ice tones so the perfect combo was the one above on the left for me...I didnt even colour the skin on this, I literally just swept a little skin colour on shaded parts and went over with a blender to soften it and added some 7210 and blended too (the photo is a little weird seems to be showing some shadows which arent there lol)...

Red 5240
