Marci AND Luka

Wow, Copic Oz is giving away 12 new copic markers in a challenge competition.  I'm entering this set of cards into the draw.  I love how these turned out.  I picked up Lil' Rocker Luka as he looks so much like my grandson Blake who has an amazing talent playing his deep red electric guitar, so this little fella was created with Blake in mind.

All we had to do was use ONE of the colours used in the sample image on the site.  I chose R46.

Hat -  R01; 02; 05; 46 & E40
Hair - E31; 33 & 35
Skin - E50; 51 & 53
Shirts - E40.  R02 & 05
Jeans - B21; 95 & 97
Shoes - C1; 3; 5; 7 & E40
Guitar - R05 & 46  Gold spica pen

Stamp -  La La Land Lil' Rocker Luka

Inks  Momento black, Tim Holtz old paper distress ink.  Black rhinestones and metal letters.

Colours Used
Hair and skin - E50; 51 & 53 
Lips and cheeks - E04
Top and headband - R02; 05 & 46
Skirt - R05 & 46
Shoes R05 35 & 46

Stamp - La La Land Ruffles Marci
Stampin' Up paper and Real Red and Basic Gray card.  Ribbon from stash.  Mather Stewart heart punch.  Champagne Mist shimmer Paint, Crystal Effects on shoes (oh so shiny)

Here are some close ups pics of these two little darlings.  I just love them to pieces!

I am still very much at the beginning in using copics.  These two cards make it number 19 and 20 as far as my copic creations go and I've so much to learn. 

I've done a beginners course and I would highly recommend that to anyone thinking of starting out with Copic Markers.

Youtube and Blogland can provide you with an amazing amount of tutorials and information, nothing quite matches being able to ask the experts in a class like situation, try their advice and to be provide with that on the spot guidance while you're learning.  

I love my copics and hope to advance my colouring skills even more.  I think I have to work on colouring ruffles as I'm not totally happy with how these ones turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by and I love to hear that you've visited, so feel free to leave a comment and some advice for colouring if you're more experienced.
