PRACTICING WITH COPICS

ODBD CHALLENGE1st copic color (2)

This card started out just on a little piece of scrap paper that I wanted to practice with my copic markers. Thanks so much to Suzanne Dean who has many youtube videos posted on how to shade with these wonderful markers. As I worked with it I remembered I need a card for my friend JoAnn, co-owner of The Stamp Shoppe.  No pressure there, right? Smile  It all came together nicely but the top just looked, well, tooooo white.  I remembered Rebekka Reeds post on paper piercing.  Check out HER blog.  WOW! I’m always impressed with her gorgeous creations. Then there was a post on the Flybabies SCS site to create a card using your scraps, well, that’s how this card came to be.  Isn’t it fun??

  I do believe Copics are my newest favorite thing, now that I have a few more of them. 

Did you know, Hobby Lobby and Michaels carry Copics now?  Think 40% off coupon.   Another tip, if you have a Smart Phone and you can bring up the Hobby Lobby web site, they will let you use the coupon right off your phone, how fun is that???
