I choose the CC356 color challenge for today's CC400. I initially colored this image with copic markers but the new set that I just bought at Hobby Lobby was spilling ink out of the marker and ruined my first attempt. Not sure what is up with the markers. I am a copic newbie.
So my second attempt I inked the image on water color paper and used pear pizzazz, lucky limeade, not quite navy, baja breeze and island indigo inks and a water coloring brush to color my image. I still need to learn how to water color though.

Gorgeous card and your coloring of the morning glories is exquisite. As for your pen....return it....they are too costly to toss aside. It should NOT do that. So sad that it ruined your first image. I think Betty's CC356 is a beautiful one.....and very popular today. : )

Amy, this is beautiful - wish I'd thought of morning glories with this fab color combo! You colored them beautifully! Like Sallie said, you should return that copic, the only time mine leak is when I've over filled them.
