Just Magnolia - Rach's sketch

This week we have a brilliant sketch done by Rach - this is the second sketch of Rach's that I have worked with this week and have thoroughly enjoyed following them.rach sketch 2 
Well, I braved the Copics again and am much happier with this card - in fact I was so keyed up after I had finished it I decided to colour another image and it landed up a right mess. That brought be back down to earth with a bang lol. Serves me right for trying to run before I can walk lol. I've still got a way to go to get the shading right but I am trying to not colour with the Copics as I do with the distress inks, they both give completely different looks so once I can get that through my thick skull I might just get there. I've ordered the new pale colours, just waiting for them to come from the US (thank goodness for wonderful friends hey!!) xxmagnolia-jm-bicycle1 
I broke into the Basic Grey Lemonade pad. So far I have shied away from this one and the June bug - don't get me wrong I love the papers but just can't get them to look right together. Hopeless is what I am lol.magnolia-jm-bicycle2
