Saturday Sharing

Hello & Happy Weekend to our Copic Lovers !

In my previous post I mentioned one of the things I love about my Copics is their versatility and my current card creation is a true example of this. I am currently participating in a Shabby Chic challenge with my group of Scrappy Friends - it is not a genre I often work in...so this card became my "test" sample....it was so easy to colour in all my embellishments with my Copics and not nearly as messy as paint and inks!

The Mannequin Dress Form chipboard was coloured with B97 - Night Blue, The white ribbon around the waist was coloured with R85 - Rose Red. The pink flowers were originally cream in colour, but I brushed over them lightly ( to give an uneven/distressed look ) with R81 - Rose Pink and the petals of the smaller flowers were brushed on the edges with B21 - Baby Blue. Very happy that everything ended up co-ordinating with the colours in my patterned paper - Yep! I love my Copics!

Don't forget the Mad for Markers store has Twiddleybitz, Seam Binding and Adhesive Pearls & Rhinestones available to purchase that can be colour matched with Copic Markers to co-ordinate with your coloured images or decorative paper - you can check these out and all the other fabulous products available from the store next weekend at the Penrith Papercrafts Festival. Sammi will be there with some of the talented Design Team girl - be sure to pop along and say Hello! :)

Enjoy
