Fitztown Masculine Challenge

I created this card for the Fitztown Challenge  #  40-Masculine.  This was actually an image that I was assigned and I couldn't be more thrilled.  He is wonderful!  As most of you know my passion is coloring animals.  I just can't get enough.  I am trying to build up my stock of Fitztown animal digis so you will definitely see more coming.  This wonderful basset hound is available here.

The digital papers are from Echo Park.  He is colored with Copic markers.  Which by they way are all cleaned and filled.  All 280 of them!  That was a job I don't care to repeat very soon. I bought a container of alcohol wipes so I can clean them periodically so they don't get so bad.  I saw a post on Pinterest on how to fill by weight.  It works amazingly well and it's very accurate.
No over-filling at all!
