Hello Everyone,

I do believe fall is upon us. Finally! This card is done with Mo's image Young Love. I love this image. I added a little autumn flower soft for color. The background paper is Apple Cider by Imaginisce. I punched out the leaves and added Pebbles Metallic Cream Chalks to them. The punches are old punches that I had but I used my Power Punch by Punch Bunch . Boy does it make it much easier to punch when you have older stiffer punches. A good friend gave it to me as a Christmas gift and I would not give it up for anything.

I am still working with Copic's I think I am getting the hang of them a little more each time I use them.

I know there are not normally bluebirds out in the fall but I just thought they would add color rather than the gray birds that are mostly around now.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Magnolia fold card

Here is my card for the All That Scraps 3rd Magnolia Challenge. The apple barrel opens and has the word HI inside done with glitter stickers. I am very new to using and building my collection of Copic Markers. This one I went with some more shadowing.

The background paper is Apple Cider by Imaginisce as well as the apple barrel stamp.

This photo show the barrel closed.

This photo shows the barrel open.

Second attempt at Copics

Happy Friday Everyone,

Here is my second attempt at using Copic markers. I think I did better with this one. Baby steps. But I have to say I am enjoying working with them. I will admit I was a skeptical about them but my favorite thing about them is that even after coloring over your image you can still see the stamp details that just didn't happen with the Tombows or Marvey's

This is a Magnolia stamp. Rick said where's the mouth? LOL

I am happy with how the card came out. I even colored my pearls with the copics to match the card.

First attempt at Copic Markers

Happy Fall Weather Everyone,

I took a Copic class that Suzanne Dean was teaching on Saturday. Wow, I have a lot to practice. Suzanne is a wonderful teacher and boy is she good at making those markers do magic.

Here is my first attempt at working with them on my own. This is not the best paper to be working on but I don't think I did to bad. It will take practice as did all of the other stamping mediums I have worked with. Reds are one of the harder colors to work with.

Don't look too close you will find my mistakes ;-)

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.

If anyone has a chance to take a class with Suzanne, I don't think you will be disappointed.
