Trying the Copics

Today's creation - well, not actually today – I did these cards a few nights ago at about 3am – so I guess that would make that 3 mornings ago – Anyway….

I decided to jump on board the copic marker kick and see where it takes me. I purchased a few online and have liked them. I'm still working on my technique and get great tutorials from Marianne at her blog I Like Markers. She is "copic certified" – whatever that means – but she really knows what she's talking about and her daily tutorials are AWESOME! Thanks, Marianne for your inspiration!!

I found a great store here in Grand Rapids that sells Copics and PrismaColor markers at a decent price. The really great thing is they are even cheaper when you purchase them online. The store is called Service Reproductions . Online the PrismaColors are only $2.58 and the Copics are only $3.99. They were a little over $4.00 in the store, but I didn't have to pay shipping either. I am a visual learner, so actually seeing the colors in person makes it easier for me to pick which ones I want. So go check them out. They have just about every color you can imagine!

Now for the stampin bit – Here is the information on how I made the 2 cards above. I used all the same paper and stamps for both.

Both cards use the following supplies:

Stamps:

Ethel with coffee cup by Rubbernecker stamps,

Real Friendship sentiment stamp by DRS Designs.

Paper:

Whisper White, certainly celery, bashful blue, real red & Barely Banana by Stampin' Up! Designer Paper – unknown – from one of the paper packs I purchased at Michael's a long time ago.

Copic Markers :

Baby Blue, Willow, Chestnut, Pink, flesh

Accessories:

Red grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!. paper piercing tool (card on right), stampin dimensionals, Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped ovals and cuttlebug embossing folder (for rug on the card on the left)

I hope you like it. This one is going to my good friend…to thank her for all she does for me.
