WOOHOO...............I have received my Copics!!!
Good morning,I am so excited I finally received my copics and I have been playing.I wanted to show the difference between the copics and my watercolour pencils and the copics are definately more vibrant.This is my first attempt at colouring with copics and it didn't turn out too bad,though I do need alot of practice...............I did choose a simple image to colour,I made it easy on myself....lol....The face isn't that dark IRL,but I do want to get a couple of lighter skin colours as I got the ciao set and the lightest in the set is EOO.I have been colouring alot of digis lately,which is the reason I wanted copics..............colouring them with pencils takes a long time to build up the colour,as I do like my images vibrant.So anyway I made a card with this image and it had to be blue,well I realised while making this I don't have much in the way of baby blue,so I used my Stampin'Up! wheel.I am not completely happy with it,I might make another later on.
The cute little ticket sentiment you see is a Bizzy Becs Digi,which will be available in her digi store very soon.........don't you just love it!!! Bec has been busy making heaps of digi images to put into her new store and WOW they are awesome,so the store is going to have heaps of things for you to chose from.So keep an eye out,I will put up a post when the store is going to open.Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Cheryl, I don't have Copics and have always wondered what makes them better and your sharing of photos to show the difference is perfect! I now have Copics on the top of my wish list.

P.S. Your card is ADORABLE!

Wahoo ... Copics ... I love mine. Got my second delivery just before going away and it took all my energy not to take them with me.

Great card, love the stars!

Hi Cheryl,
Hey your a natural with those Copics. He looks adorable! I use Promarkers as they are a bit cheaper & more readily avaialble over here. But it is nice to have a choice, & they're fab for the digis. Can't wait to get my hands on Bec's tickets & her other designs. Love the card.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

jhet said...

Hi Cheryl! How are you? It's been awhile. Hope all is well! Now, you're hooked on Copics! LOL! Well, you can actually combine Copics with your coloured pencils for more shading. (Note: Use the Copics first then your pencils :) When I want my image to look vibrant, I go for Copics but when I want it subtle, I use my Prismas. :)

Your card looks cute! Take care and have a lovely day!

Crafty Dawn said...

Hi Cheryl,
Greetings from a cold, wet Scotland. This is a really cute card. I love your colours and the image is so well done. Glad you like the Copics - I don't know what I would do without mine and the fact you can buy refill inks is great. Enjoy.
Hugs,
