Hi All!  Well, things have been crazy as usual but I finally got some time in to make a card- Yay me!  It's about time too because I've had this image Bookish Tia from Some Odd Girl colored and sitting on my desk for a little bit now and it was seriously starting to kill me :)  When I first started coloring with Copics I never picked my papers first but now that's how I work about 99% of the time and it really does make things much easier.  The thing it doesn't so much lend itself to is color challenges so I hardly ever participate in those.   But when I saw the inspiration photo over at the Some Odd Girl Challenge blog I was stoked because it just so happened that the papers/colors I chose to use with little Tia actually already fit the colors in the photo!  Things working out like that hardly ever happen to me so I took it as a sign that I needed to get on this card and enter it :)  I used the sketch over at the Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge blog and love it for its simplicity- it truly allows everyone to put their own unique spin on things which is always cool to see.  I hope I did both the photo inspiration and sketch challenge justice- and most of all I hope you enjoy!
