    Yes, Elaine, thanks for asking: that was the question I was going to ask, lol. I have entered a couple of cards, as I’m fairly new to using Copics, my Favourite technique is – just using them! I love them, hope that’s “favourite” enough 🙂 Great challenge, on my “favourite challenges” list, so I’ll be back! Dee

    Just found your blog through the post this week’s sponsor made on hers! Thanks for the challenge, I haven’t done much detailed colouring recently so this was a nice push to do some! Beautiful samples from the DT.
