I love my Copics!!

Hi everyone,  I'm so excited that my DT project for this week is all about Copics!!  I first bought my copics last year and only had about 10 ciao markers....now my collection has slowly grown to 52.  And I've got a wish list a mile long. 

I love the flexibilty you get with using copics...they blend so well and the you can even make up your own colour combinations by blending different colours.

If you are new to Copics, I would suggest going on youtube and checking out the many tutorials etc and then you can get an idea of where to start with choosing your collection.  Just remember when colouring stamps with copics to use X-press blending card and Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The stamp I using this week is such a cutie....its 'Back to school Luka' from La La Land Stamps.  I decided to colour him and make a card for my nephew, who is turning 13 this week.

The photos below show the different stages of colouring and the also has which colours I used.







Here he is all finished and cut out, ready for placement on a card!


The orange shimmer card was from my stash but every thing else is available from http://www.kerryscraftycardsandcuts.com.au/store/

Materials used:
Kaisercraft's Sears and Son Collection
Kaisercrafts Mini alpha stickers
La La Land Stamps
Copic Ciao Markers


I also decided to make a little gift card envelope to add to his card.....


I hope he likes it and I hope this inspires you to get out your copics and have a colour!!  I find colouring so therapeutic and relaxing...so go on, have a go!
Thanks
S xx
