Fun with digis- post one

Hiya!  I been having some fun with some new digi images this week.  Coloring is just so fun!  I have a ways to go with markers, at least on bigger images...the often look a little streaky when I am done.  Maybe I need better blending tools or markers (I don't have the coveted Copics), who knows, but I am working on it. :)  I used to color with colored pencils a lot, especially in high school art and college, but then I abandoned them for a while.  You know the saying, "if you love something, let it go.  If it comes back to you it is yours forever...." or something like that.  Well that is how I am feeling about my Primsacolor colored pencils about now, destined to be together forever!  I hope they don't mind- ha! 

So I got this super cute freebie image from Whimsie Doodles and the sentiment is from By LORi Designs.  The image actually had it's own sentiment, but I thought this went really well together and made the perfect baby card!  I love the base color of Calypso Coral from SU! and the DP from Lawn Fawn Pink Lemonade, it just works so well with that cute little worm!  For the layout I used the current Retro Sketch #73.  This is my first time playing over there and it was oh so fun! 
7/29/13 ETA- I am also linking to the 52 Card Pick-up for the first time.  Thanks for the invite Patrice! :)

So, for the Question of the Day- what kind of markers and blending tools do you prefer and why? 

I'll be posting another card with a digi soon, so stop by again please! :)
