I should have picked out the background paper before I colored the images. If I had I would have done a blue cup instead of purple. Too late! The background paper is a 2009 Basic Grey paper. I bought it on clearance for $.22 in July of 2010. I think it was time for me to use it. The image is a Bugaboo digital image colored with Copics.
I have been trying to use my Copics. I am not so hot at the shading and blending.
