Don't anyone get real excited because I still love my Prisma pencils...however...I did purchase a few more Copics the other day and am in the process of learning how to use them. So many use this color medium and all the creations tend to be gorgeous so I thought I'd give it a try and maybe some of that gorgeous-ness will rub off on me! LOL! I'm pretty sure I've viewed every video made on how to use these things and was still having such a hard time. So, I purchased this wonderful book (Copic Coloring Guide) and must say I'm loving it. For a beginner like me it sure is coming in handy and hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon.
After seeing Jan's card using this image, I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at it. Mine is no where close to being as pretty as hers but....I'm learning and I guess that's what it's all about. Also, Dana, has been so much inspiration with her lovely coloring with Copics...take a look and you'll see what I'm talking about!
I'm not REAL happy with the card (but am happy with the coloring for a first shot at this). I was going to stamp a sentiment at the base of the flowers but was just too plain "chicken"! It took me forever to get this thing colored and I wasn't about to mess it up trying to stamp a sentiment on there straight! LOL! I just used some GP card stock from Walmart for this this image - but will be doing all the ones in the future with Cryogen paper - Tammy was so gracious to send me a couple of sheets of this to try and I love it. Thanks again, Tammy.
So a big SHOUT OUT to these three ladies - and all the rest that color so pretty with Copics! Thanks for all your inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by.............and have a great weekend.
