Copic Fever!

Well, for a while now as I learn more and more about Stampin, reading, visiting blogs and looking around, one day I stumble into a site with some VERY pretty cards I notice this person was using COPIC MARKERS! I become quite interested in the subject and stared re-searching! The more I read the more intrigued and interested in the subject I got! So on my next trip to the city I set out to get a few of those
markers and star
trying them to see what the noise was all about! Needless to say I was hooked! Those things are amazing! though I must say, a person really needs practice though, specially when it comes to blending!

So, little by little I have been learning about the art of coloring with Copics and enjoying every minute of it! The one down size to this markers is definitely the prize, but . . . if you are lucky and do some search around the web, you can find some pretty sweet deals! Though for us Canadians is not as easy as it is for our fellow Americans! I guess what I like the most about this markers is that the colours are so vibrant and they are just lots of fun to use! So . . . here the card I made today, using them and of course other staff as well. Is the weekend so it is Birthday card making day!

One of my favourite Copics Site is "Kiyomi Krafts" by, Jenn Muraoka. I really appeciate the way she always takes an extra picture showing the Copic Markers used in the project, so I decided to do the same, hoping other will also appreciate it! I have also posted a few really helpful links about this subject to the right on my favourite links list, so make sure to check it out!


Stamps: SU Crazy for Cupcakes, SU It's your Birthday (for the sentiment)
Paper: SU Whisper White, Pumpink Pie, Taken with Teal and SU Rainbow Sherbert DP.
Ink: Black Staz On for the sentiment, Versafine Black Onix for the stamp which was also embossed with clear embossing powder to prevent bleeding while coloring with the Copics. SU Pumpink Pie, Garden Green and Taken with Teal Markes.
