Copic Coloring.....

Hello Krafters!

We all know Copics can become expensive to collect! I have collected a good amount.  I decided enough is enough! I have to get my money’s worth…right?

Ok, I admit, I am not the best Copic colorer (yeah I know that is not a word), but I thought I would give it a whirl! A little over a year ago, I took a beginner’s course and really enjoyed it. I then enrolled in an intermediate course, but it ended abruptly because the owner fell ill. So aside from coloring pearls and bling, I haven’t done much coloring L

My girl, Netta (hey girl! thank you!), RAKed me some stamps because I wanted to practice. I played it safe with this one because I am not that good at blending colors….YET! Here it is:

To embellish the card, I cut the image with a Nestability. I used the Art Philosophy cart and compatible stamp for the sentiment and the rolled flowers were cut from AP. Since I forgot to cut leaves, I used the Martha Stewart Branch Punch for the leaves. I also used a piece of satin ribbon to finish it off.

I hope you all like it J This card was so fun to make and I am proud of how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead
