Color Penciling darker stamped areas

A dear friend of mine Michelle Bodensteiner taught me how to color dark areas of a stamp. Like most of you I assumed you would loose detail if you tried to color over a dark area. With color pencils (Berol Prisma Color is the brand I use the most) you can change an image greatly. Just find the right darker color to enhance the black. Works great on eyes, hair, flowers, and in this case a skirt.
