A Boys Card!!!

I made this card last night and had to take a photo of it quickly with my camera that is having major issues so excuse the pic!! Anyway, I decided to follow the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious as I already had this image coloured up ready to use!!
Isn't he just so cute! I love this Penny Black image (Thanks Sam for letting me use him) I coloured him in using copics and H20's.
I only have ten copic markers  and I love how the images look when they are coloured with them but i am still unsure if I want to buy more of these or just stick with what I have - aqua crayons and twinkling H20's. The reason I am unsure is because 1. I am still learning to use my copics so not willing to buy more till I know how to use them properly and 2. because it costs money that I don't have!! I've also had the debate with myself whether or not to get copics or tria markers (if I was to get markers) I really love the tria markers but they are hard to source and again an expense. So I would love to hear what you all use or what you prefer!!! A bit of help may assist me in my decision!! Thanks in advance!!
Card ingredients:
Papers - Kaisercraft and Kaszazz
Stamps - penny Black and Kaszazz
Copics used - E00, E57, R24, B32, E31
H20's used - Icicles
