  5. Love all these beautiful samples! I have tried most of these techniques (played with but haven't taken the copic plunge quite yet!)...my favorite is watercoloring. Love to layer in the color. I made one last Halloween card, uploaded it this morning...can that count?

    Love Laurie, so please send me her address!
