Copics I Need

Ok, so I am starting to compile a list of Copics that I feel that I need!

For Hair:
E25, E29, E31 - brown
Y11, Y21, E97, E99 - blonde
C3, C5, C7, C9 - black

E000, E00, E11, E21, R20

(The Italic ones are the ones I have or am getting in the next few months in my marker club)

I will add to this list as I find I need more options...


LOL, here are the next 2 images I have done tonight... and I think they may be the last for tonight... I am getting tired from making cards all day. I am ready to just go watch whatever I want to on TV and relax my back a little! But I think these next 2 images are better than the first, I am really working on SLOWING DOWN!

I do feel that if I had just a few more colors, like HAIR colors, things might go a little smoother!:) I really need to invest in BROWNS, for hair and wood!

So, I used 2 stamps from the "A Kind Word" stamp set from Stampin' Up. I LOVE this set!!

My major problem with the cats and hat is that I got out of line terribly! (Excuse my pictures, I can't seem to get the right kind of light here in my house for these pictures! UGH!)

I think the girl turned out pretty good though! Terrible bleeding on the swing part though, UGH!

So, leave me a comment with comments(duh) or suggestions!:)


First Image of the Night

Ok, here is the first image of the night... not great! lol

I used:
BG49, BG23, BG34, C1, C2, and then I don't have any oranges, so I used R24 and blended E00 on top of that...

Major bleeding and blurring! lol

7 new Copics!

I got 7 new Copics today from my Copic Sketch Club! I have updated my colors on my sidebar! Tonight, my husband and all 3 of my boys went to the fair to watch the tractor pull. I have decided that I definitely do NOT like tractor pulls... in my opinion it is about the most BORING thing ever to watch! lol So, I opted to stay home by myself! :)

I am about to finish up a bowl of ice cream ;) and then I will get to using these markers!:) I will post pictures in a bit!

Working with Copics

Ok, so I needed to make a card for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge which I am a Design Team Member for. I decided to use my Copics. I have no clue how to shade... I have watched videos and have tried, but I think either I am just Copic-Stupid or I just don't have the right colors yet! LOL It is a tad sad right now that I have to make blue bears since I have no browns! LOL

The Copic Clutz

So, I decided to start this blog to journal my adventures and mishaps using Copic markers! lol I have not had the best experience yet, and I am sure there are others like me out there! So, I will post links to tutorials that are helpful, a list of the Copic markers I have so you know which colors I have available, etc.

I will TRY to post a few times a week, just to make myself use these wonderful markers!
We will see how this goes!:)
