Coloring with Copics

Well, I have finally caught the fever--the Copic marker fever!  Just bought my first batch of these amazing markers that everyone is using,  and I must admit that they are wonderful--and addictive!  And expensive!  I want them all, but that is only going to happen gradually, I'm afraid.  Anyhoo, here's my first completed card done with Copics.  (It was not my first attempt at using them--that effort went directly into the trash can--lol)!  But this one I do like even though the shading doesn't show up very well in the photos.

I made this card using all Close To My Heart products which doesn't actually happen very often even though I am a CTMH consultant!  This is a terrific stamp set to use with Copic markers!  It is called Flower Child and you can purchase it directly from my website.  Just click HERE then go to "Products."    Click on the Spring Idea Book and go to pages 54-55.  There you will find this cute stamp set as well as several other "baby" sets, several of which are great for coloring with Copics.  Check back here again soon--I have another card in mind using this set which I will post as soon as I make it.  I am entering this card in three challenges.  The first one was a sketch from Tina at Stamp With Fun.  Here's the sketch:

Isn't that a great sketch?!!!  This blog actually originates in Germany, but they have all the text in both German and English, so everyone can play!  I just love the way blogs unite the world!
The other challenges are "Going Round and Round" at Pixie Dust Studio and "Going Round in Circles" at Charisma Cardz both of which just called for something round on the submission.  And now, back to coloring with Copics!
