My 1st Time to Use Copic Markers
I did use them on the Monkey Card…but I actually made this first. 😀
Yes, I did get out of the lines a bit. 😉
I have to say I didn’t originally know what all the fuss was about with those pricey Copic markers, then I used them. They’re really awesome!! But…really expensive. If you’re going to try them out, expect to pay around $6 for each one.
I’d say the truly special thing about them is their ability to blend colors. In this card I used Copic Sketch markers. They have a blunt tip on one end and a paintbrush tip on the other. I’m so impressed with their vivid colors!! You can learn more about them here:
If you don’t already use them, you’re going to be blown away with their products. Wait until you see some of the art people have created with them. Don’t let it make you feel inept like it does me we all have our talents and clearly mine is not coloring.
Here’s a card I made for my friend:
Stampin’ Up: RETIRED – Totally Cool Stamp (the girls)
Stampin’ Up: Fundamental Phrases (Hello)
PaperTrey Ink.com – Green, Polka Dot paper, Ribbon
Marvy Scalloped Punch – Giga Size
Cuttlebug Folder – D’vine Swirls
Copic Markers – B24, E00, E33, E37, R02, R29, W7, YG09 (bought at Hobby Lobby)
Silk Flowers by The Paper Studio Spare Parts (found at Hobby Lobby)
Brads in Flowers – Recollections (found at Michael’s)
Used a corner punch to round the corners & my trusty Crop A Dile Big Bite to punch those holes for the brads.
I also used some orange and green Stickles to bling things up around that stamp. 😀
Here’s some really helpful info about using Copics:
