Here's my card for this sketch challenge. I need some Copic training so I'll be watching some videos today, that's for sure. I heat embossed my image because usually when I use light colors with just black ink, even Memento, it will smear. Embossing didn't help much either. My leaves turned out nicely though. The peaches are horrible. I think this is a dud, but I do thank you for looking and have a very blessed day!

Oh, I think the peaches are beautiful!! I have the same problems with the ink smearing no matter which black I 've tried. The only thing I have seen that helps me is that I just sort of dab the markers over the heavy concentrated stamped black ink areas instead of dragging the tip through it like I do in the more open areas. Don't know if that is the proper solution but it may help.
LOVE your card and the lovely coordinating papers.

Your card is gorgeous...love that Graphic 45 DP! Your coloring with the copics is wonderful. I found that the Memento ink on PTI's Select White Paper works really well with copics...not much problem with smearing at all. Just a thought!
