I CASED my own card from a recent Teapot Tuesday challenge but this time I did all of the colouring with Copics and shaded with Prismacolour pencils, even her little face is done with only E000 copic and several pencils.
I watched Beates tutorial where the blending is done with Gamsol, I didn't have any so I tried a mineral solvent - the smell was so terrible I stopped and blended with a dab of gelatos rubbed over the pencils.
Gamsol or OMS as it is called in Australia, is on my shopping list. I had heaps of fun doing this. Thank you for looking. Oh I forgot, I added little happy clouds that I learnt last week.

Love your little Sassy Cheryl image and you colored her up wonderfully! I am going to have to try this technique for sure! Fun clouds too! Love how you framed it so it looks liked framed artwork - great card! Hugz!

Gorgeous colouring, Susie! I love the cloudy sky you created for her. I hope that the making of this sweet scene helped you feel a little cooler. Just a warning - don't expect even the OMS to be as odorless as its name suggests. I have the Winsor & Newton Sansodor and "without odour" it most certainly isn't. But I hope you'll find it a big improvement over what you have.
