More Copic Practice!

I am loving my new markers! This is my second attempt using the Copics. I need to find myself a class so I can get some better results with them, but I'm still loving them. Today was definitely a day for some coloring. When I color, it relaxes me, and it has certainly been one of those days. Short version of the story...my little one, who is afraid of the dentist, needed to have a tooth pulled!!! Wonderful news though...bravest day of both of our lives...lol! Everything went beautifully, but we were both so nervous and stressed about the whole situation that it was just nice to spend some time coloring this evening and let the stress go away.

I started with this delightful Pure Innocence image from Heather Ellis. Isn't she just darling! She is colored up with quite a few Copic markers. I used B0000, BG11, BG15, E000, E01, E53, E55, E57, G24, G82, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, YG95, and YG97. Then I was fortunate to find this retired Stampin' Up paper in my stash. Note to self...find paper first, color second! One would think that by now, I would know that...ugh! I was also fortunate enough to find Mercy's Sketch Challenge today. This was my first time joining in, and I hope that I get to again very soon. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit this evening...Toodles! :D

LOVE< LOVE, LOVE, the printed paper you used for the bottom layer on your card--sure wish I could have a whole PAD of it instead of just a few scraps left over!

Your card is great--glad you got to play!
