Today I am showing you my first attempt with Copic markers. For my Birthday, I had asked my husband to get me a few as I really wanted to try them out. I have been unhappy with my current coloring techniques and have been frustrated with my outcomes. Well, I am hooked now. I know I have a long way to get the results I have seen other Copic users present-but I do love the vivid color and shading you can achieve. Don't look too close as the green, yellow, and orange colors on this are not Copics!! I couldn't get that many. lol But I do have my request in for Christmas now!

Paper- Unknown-This is something I had in my stash forever-before I knew to save the names of stuff!
Spellbinders-Snowflake Die
Stamp - Stampendous Snowlights
Doily, Ribbon, various Martha Stewart Glitters, Snow Writer for texture

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate it.

It's beautiful! Uh oh - watch've been bitten by the Copic Bug! It won't be long before copic markers begin to infest your craft room with their presence!

Yes, don't you wish Copics were half their price? I"ve got a good supply, but find I still "need" more! LOL

I know Nutzi loved your card. How sweet of you to go all-out for her birthday. :)
