Monday, 16 January 2012 I am now addicted!

Hey There,

I have been collecting Copic Markers for the last 6months.  I have quite a few markers now, and I have been wanting to give it a try.

Whilst being on the Helmar Design Team, I am working along side the lovely Carisa Zglobicki.  Her cards are always amazing!!  I asked her where I could get my hands on some boy stamps.  She directed me to Saturated Canary Digis. OMG!!  I love them.  I can buy them and put them onto my computer and use them whenever I like.  They also have a blog for their card challenges.  So I had a look and thought, why not?  I am going to give it a go.  The main factor in this months challenge was simplicity.

Here is my very first card, using Copic Markers for the first time.

OMG!!  I loved the end product, I just wanted to keep coloring in.  So therapeutic.  I stuck the ribbon down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and it worked so well as it dries so quickly.

I was happy with my skateboarder.  I am sure that it is not the perfect way to use a copic, but I am so happy with it.  I made him pop off the page a little by using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots which is something else I am addicted to.

Big thanks to Carisa for the inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Ack, Brilliant!! I love your card, Renee!!!! And thanks so much for the sweet shout out. I'm blushing I tell ya! :D You totally nailed the coloring - I can't wait to see how you just kill it as you continue to color and hone in on your personal style & technique. That's all I've gotta say - practice, practice, practice. and YOu are SO right. it IS therapeutic. I know I can sit down to color an image starting out super stressed and totally be calm by the end. LOVE that!!! thanks for joining us at saturated canary challenges this week. :D I hope to see even MORE of you around with your coloring! :D
