My first copic markers arrived!

I've learned my lesson: one should never swear! I swore I'd never get sucked into the Copic Marker craze. Nope! Not me. Nuh uh! I have every coloring medium imaginable. Why would I want just another kind of marker? Well...I caved in and jumped on the bandwagon. My first markers arrived on Thursday and I've been a coloring fool ever since! Wooo hooooooo. They are wonderful!

Now don't be too critical of my coloring skills thus far. I really want to take some copic classes and learn how to manipulate these colorful babies better. But this is my first card using my new copics.

The current Roses on Paper challenge blog has its challenge to make a card using the colors: PINK, GREEN and YELLOW. This is my card following the required color combination. If you enjoy challenges, be sure to check out Roses on Paper's monthly challenges. Roses on Paper is also adding a new division called Belles and Whistles and I'm sure you'll want to click the link and read about this exciting new venture. While you are at it, they are also looking for guest design team members. Read all about it at Roses on Paper.

I'm really excited about learning more about my copics. I got the CIAO type. If you use copics, what type do you have and please leave me help, hints, suggestions as I learn to use these new coloring tools. So far, I have to say that I'm having a blast with them. I can hardly wait to add more new colors to my collection.

For this card, here is the Card Recipe and ingredients:

Stamps: Sarah Kay

Paper: K&Company

Coloring medium: Copic Markers

Accessories: Ribbon, machine stitching, button brad, Nestibilities die, copper and crystal stickles.

Until next time...
