CMC: Fairy Captain In Pastel

Welcome!   Today  am a little late positing this card. I am I just returned from Anaheim.  I  had a wonderful opportunity to take a class on "inking" with Debbie Olson and Colleen Scheen.   It was fabulous!    We learned some fun Copic backgrounds and practiced ethnic skin tones and understanding how skin tones for a baby would be different from those of middle years or senior years.   I has a fabulous time.   My only regret is that I did not get to stay for CHA.
