Mad for Markers #2

Well... its my Wedding Anniversary today!! 6 years wow - not doing anything special except enjoying our little family:-)

So this is my first time colouring up with Copic's - far out they are FUN!!  The card is for the challenge over at Mad 4 Markers - to use shades of the one colour!!  So brilliant for me because I only have pink Copics and a couple of skin coloured ones!!!!!!  

My girly is pretty funky eh?  But I must say I did run into a few little problems colouring her up - the ink soaks through the paper and because, I have like a plastic desk mat, the ink then leeched back into my paper around the outside of my stamped image.  So that was a pain - but I think I managed to fix most of it with my blender pen!!  Thank goodness for that pen otherwise it was going to be a total disaster!!

The pens I used are: Skin: E00, E11, E21 everything else: RV000, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV10, RV13, RV23 and of course my trusty Blender Pen 0

Thanks for checking out my card:-)
