As You Like It Favorite Coloring Medium and Why
About 99.9% of my projects use some sort of alcohol marker but I lean toward my Copics.  I'm still learning and spend a few hours a week watching tutorials and staring at the works of others.  I have acquired a huge list of crafters that I admire and aspire to join the ranks of one day, maybe in a few more years?!

I have a few cards to post since I am way behind and have been neglecting my poor blog lately.  I apologize in advance...

First up is my very first attempt at adding clouds to digis, I don't think it's too bad, but it could have been better.  I think I was saved by the cloud dies so that my coloring is less obvious.
