These Girlfriend images are so much fun to color, especially with Copic markers! I added a polkadotted pattern to the purple coat on the far right with light touches from just the tip of my Copic marker. I don't use orange much in my designs, but it was fun incorporating this pretty Cosmo Cricket Salt Air designer paper into my card sketch. I especially liked it for the paper piecing on the umbrella.
