New Copics for CCT #93

I have finally plucked up the courage to try out my new copic markers that I got for Christmas. I watched a couple of tutorials and checked out the Whiff of Joy Inspirational and Tutorial blog before I was even game enough to try.

So this is my very first try, my practice run!! I received Copic Ciao's the 36setA and as soon as I started doing this I decided I need more. I just found that I didn't have enough of the same colours to blend in for the shading. So I guess I'll have to leave hints everywhere that I need some more for Valentine's Day and my Birthday, which is soon after!!

I have made this card for my sister-in-law who is a lot more stylish than me and will probably wonder why I put a green handbag on Miss Anya but I quite like it anyway. I used the sketch from Cute Card Thursday Challenge 93 and mostly the supplies were from my stash.

I will keep trying with my Copics, there is a lot of improving to do but I was pretty happy with the result.

Okay girl you need to meet up with me and if you like I can show you how I colour with my Copics. I have over 100 now and just ordered 10 more. Go to 7 Kids. They have the best range of copics really cheap but even when you take into account the huge postage it is cheaper than buying from a store in Australia. Email me if you need any help.

I think you did a fantastic job with your copics! I love the way you shaded her hair. I hope to get some soon too. I was interested to hear you are an agronomist as my cousin is an agronomist in Griffith.
