The Soda Shop

I thought this image from Digi Doodle Shop was really great.  I used to work in a soda shop as a teenager so it brought back memories.  This is for Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #57 to work with a sketch (below),  The background paper is from October Afternoon.  The paper I used on the edges is great.  The sayings are so appropriate with the image.  I colored the image with copics and inked the edges with Colorbox Classic Pigment.  Dots were put on the dress with a white pen.  Come on and join our challenge and have some fun and you may win a gift certificate to Digi Doodle Shop!

Copics:  B000, B21, B34,B93, B95
C1, C3
E00, E02, E13, E15, E33, E97, E99
R20, R24, R29

Your card is fantastic. It really is vintage in looks. I also used to be a soda jerk. Your coloring and papers coordinate well together. Hugs, dj
