Nurse Nora

Meet Nurse Nora. I got her from All That Scraps , she is by C.C. Designs. I purchased her as a digi, but I think you can get her in rubber also. I just happen to be trying to get on the digi band wagon. I've also pulled out my Bic MarkIt pens(which are alcohol based just like Copics)and have mixed them with some light Copics because they are all pretty strong, but I have found they are blending together quite nicely. Especially after a few You Tube classes.  I would be one of those people who observe from afar, do some research, dabble around then seek help if it's not working out. Being semi-house bound with Mom now it's a good thing that's how I've always done things. Some people might call that Winging It! I've always liked to dabble in all kinds of techniques, so the digis, Copics, and Bic's have been a fun learning curve. I think I have discovered why everybody loves the Copics, as they dry they come up a nice soft, clear, crisp image. Those words don't sound like they go together, but when you see your finished piece it's a very striking effect.

What a cute image and great way to use the sketch. I think your coloring is wonderful. I have not jumped on the copic bandwagon yet, but I am so impressed by everyone who colors with them! Maybe I will have to check out a video like you did :>) Thanks for playing along with Sketch Girl!!!

I love your card and learned about the Bic Mark It pens. I didn't know about them but now I must try them with my Copics.... Thanks for playing along with Sketch Girl Challenge and I do look forward to seeing your creations again.
