Copic Christmas!

I've seen some stunning and beautiful cards done where images have been coloured with Copic markers so after debating long and hard, I went out this morning and picked up my first lot of Copic Markers.  

Here are my first cards made using them, I think I'll get better at this whole shading and blending thing as I go, but everyone has to start somewhere!  I've blended three pinks on the butterfly and then added a soft blue green to highlight the circles on her wings.  Melon Mambo and Whisper White card and the sentiment is from Well Scripted.

And for my next attempt at shading... I've used three reds red/oranges here for the flowers from Fifth Avenue stamp set, the sentiment comes from Many Merry Messages which is one set I use a lot during Christmas Card making sessions I love this scripted message.  

I think the shading has ended up being very subtle here on the petals but I'm pretty happy with the result. I'm sure I'll learn the tricks of the trade for this as I go.

I hope you've enjoyed my postings, I'm off to try the Fifth Avenue Rose with copics, I've done it in watercolours and it was stunning so lets see what I come up with using this new technique.  I'll post it later today if I get it finished!


  1. Hi Kasey ... well ... you are braver than I am ... buying your first Copics! I would love some ... but don't really know where to start! What colours to buy ... and which are the best type. I will be looking forward to your creations. (Love these two ... and well done for your first attempts!)
    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. I always attach a reply to the comments I receive ... and here is what I wrote in reply ...
    "What a lovely encouraging comment ... Thanks so much for letting me know that my card recipes are helpful. I am so glad that someone is finding them useful ... and printing them out! :D How kind of you to mentor someone else's downline. I'm sure you will find it encouraging to help them grow their business ... even if it doesn't directly advantage you. But ... that is what crafters are like ... sharing ideas and caring for one another! :D I hope your business is all you hope it will be, too, Kasey! Thanks so much for passing on my link! I am thrilled! Hugs xxaxx "
