Bitten by the Copic Bug!!!

Well it is official.  I have been bitten and subsequently infected by the wallet strangling Copic Bug.  I have been building up my collection of Copics.............. with absolutely no idea how to use them.  Having seen the stunning creations that people make with these pricey little markers I just had to know what all the fuss was about.  Well my collection is now 54 strong and I have no doubt it will grow again soon.  Anyway I decided that I finally had enough to actually sit down and use them and just thought I would share with you my first attempt at using them, and the very first card I have made using my second attempt at Copics.  I have only done these 2 images and I can definatley say that I am HOOKED!!!!

This is my very first attempt at using Copics.  I have cut her out ready to use her on a card, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.  I thought it turned out ok considering.

This is my first card using a copic coloured image.  I really like how it turned out.  Considering that I am not a card maker I was a bit worried about how I would manage to pull it off but I like it.

A close up of my colouring.

Thanks for looking & I hope you have a fantastic day.  I am going to spend my day making a few more cards.  That is the plan anyway.............. let's see how I go.

Don't forget my blog candy giveaway :)

    You have a lovely blog! Gonna enjoy looking back and to follow forward, I sure be back for that candy, I have a bad sweet tooth :)


  3. Samantha, you did a fabulous job. I can't believe these are your first attempts. And what are you talkin', "I'm not a card maker"? Your card is gorgeous.

    I opted to not get Copics because of the smell. My environmental sensitivities have saved me from the wallet strangling Copic bug.
