My First Digi Image from KennyK

Last week I purchased my very first Digi Images - from choosing just a few to buy was really difficult but from the minute I saw him, I knew Handyman would be in my basket.
I have coloured him in using pro-markers and copics and have used DP from K&Co Hopscotch 6x6 and BasicGrey Lime Rickey 6x6 and the sketch is one i have a copy of in my sketch book that was featured on The Sketch 'N' Stash Blog ages ago!

I have been holding out from buying digi images because I love the actual process of inking up a stamp and creating the image, and Also I have a fairly cheap printer made by Kodak (when you have 2 teenagers doing A-levels & GCSE's you use lots of ink, so you need it to be cheap) so, I was a bit worried the ink would smudge however but I was really surprised I printed direct onto Neenah Card stock (which does bleed a bit when using alcohol pens) I used the draft quality setting and left it to dry over night. He was great fun to colour and I am really looking forward to making cards out of the other images i purchased

Markers Used: Soft Peach & Peach, Sunflower & Gold, Cinnamon & Caramel Pro-markers
C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, E000, E00, E11, R20, E34 & E35 Copics
