Another class sample with those fantabulous Copic markers! I hear that sometime later this year there might even be a DVD teaching how to use the darn things...I will SO be first in line for it! This card was created using the new You Take the Cake set, I cut some patterned paper with my Create A Cut, distressed it with Scattered Straw using a cotton make up pad and doodled...only slightly but I am getting more adventerous! Sherry just inspires me so with her doodling I have to push myself! As a funny side note, I was showing a recent card to my hubby and pointing out where I had doodled and how I "wouldn't quit my day job..." then I caught myself and started laughing...this IS my day job! It's my JOB to learn to doodle! Oh sweet mysteries of life I've finally found you (way old reference most of you are too young to get)! Again I found myself grabbing the Doodlebug Sugar paper and ran it through the Cuttlebug to create this fab sparkle flower, and ran through a Vanilla Bean panel from Memory Box with the dots folder and then ran the New Canvas ink down the center to give it some depth. I stamped the blue background paper with the dotted stamp from the Behind the Scenes set to just jazz it up a bit and then added some glitz with the Sakura glaze and starburst pens I seem to grab so often. I added one last little detail with a Doodlebug yellow stone in the flower center and called it a night!

Kim,
Nice card! I'm enjoying seeing more of your work. Obviously you are pleased with the Copic markers. Do you mind if I ask, where are you purchasing them and are you buying them in series or indivdually?

Thanks,

Hi Kim!!! Just wanted to say you're doing a great job with the Copics!! I'm honored to say that I am friends with Kathy, "the Copic Queen" & proud of it!! Lucky me, she's just a 15 minute drive away if I need some Copic assistance!! I have yet to purchase any of your wonderful stamps, because I am on a strict, self-imposed sabbatical from buying anything for awhile. But I can drool, right??
