Seahorse under the sea colored with copic markers

I made a seahorse card, using the outline combo image from Seahorse habitat, printed onto XpressIt copic paper, and colored with copic markers.
And I made it for the Love to Scrap challenge, which Doodle Pantry is sponsoring today!
I pierced the holes randomly and hand threaded the linen twine through them.  I was trying to keep the general base simpler, since there is so much going on within the image.
This took quite a while to color, but was totally fun. I used mostly the "dot" technique. Well worth the effort.  The inside is blank, I am saving this card for something I may need to send in the future.
 Here's a close up to see coloring detail.

Digital: Seahorse habitat
Paper: XpressIt copic paper, PTI melon, PTI hawaiian, PTI teal
Accents/Tools: piercer, thread, sewing machine, wavy with dots EK edger punch, white mini brad (for "pearl")
Copic markers in picture below:

Thank you for stopping in and I hope you are inspired to create.

I have all the Copic coloring guides so if the answer is in one of them, you can just refer me to that :)

What is the "dot" technique?

You are an AMAZING artist and I'm blessed to know you so I get to see all the beautiful things you create!
