I tried something new!

This adorable guy is from The Greeting Farm.  The sentiment is also a part of the set I just purchased.  I have seen a few tutorials on how to do background coloring.  Since I really don't like the white backgrounds I usually have and it is so time consuming for me to use my copics to color the background (I hate the streaking so I end up going over it a lot) and I use a lot of ink with my copics, I tried one of the techniques I have seen.  I used a stippling brush and 2 of my numerous ink pads (I have so many).  I went around the image with a sky blue and then went over it again with sunshine yellow.  I love the way the colors combined to look like I had also used green.  They blended well and I am really pleased with the result.
