P.S Thanks so much for the lovely comments they are very much appreciated.
P.S.S When I bought my Copics I was going to throw them in the rubbish bin as I had used water colour pencils, but Chris Dark over at Sketching Stamper gave me this tutorial to look at which helped me. It's a friend of her's that did the tutorial. Here is the site look under tutorial's hope this helps.
