This is the Triple Easel Card that we made
The images available at Grimsby Crafts are Secret Crafter Manga Images - the beauty of these is that the face is rather large and allows the extra room to create the facial features using the copics. The papers are also available in the shop, the pearls are but have been coloured with the copics.
