These are the copic markers used to color the image and I also used a spica pen color gold. Here is a close up of the image.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone had a great week end and all is well with your families. Kids here last day of school is on Tuesday, so I’m going to have Emma and Aiden only 1 day a week this year. Been working out in the yard a lot added some new flowers. I also started taking my wallpaper down in my kitchen, I’m so tired of it, have not decided what color I want to paint it yet. Have any great ideas?
