Beach Babe

I ordered a package of these new Copic Sketch Fine nibs to try.  I watched THIS VIDEO and thought it would be nice to have a bullet nib on a few of my Copic Sketch markers (the oval ones).  The skin tone marker E00 that I use a lot was the first marker I thought of for this new nib.  Seems like when I'm coloring skin tones on stamped images many times the area is small and narrow and this tip really makes it much easier to get into those tight spaces.  Basically you just take a pair of tweezers and pull out the chisel nib (that side of the marker that I never use, by the way!) and replace it with the smaller nib - isn't that cool?  So far I only have 3 markers that I switched out the nibs on.  I'm going to see how I like them and then maybe do a few more.  
The colors I used on this bathing beauty!  I was trying to match colors with the stripe card stock you can see in the background.  I sparkled up the big rock on her finger but you can't really see it in the picture.  
And here she is in all her glory all colored up & ready to go.  I didn't add a sentiment yet because I'm not sure what occasion to use so I'll leave it blank for now and add a sentiment when I'm ready to send it!  Image is Art Impressions Beach Babes.  The sun burst is from the retired Amuse Studio Rock Star stamp set.
