Copic Markers

Sorry I haven't updated in a while.  In my never-ending quest for the latest (at least to me) and greatest crafting mediums, I've discovered Copic markers.  Actually, I heard about them about a year ago but totally blew it off because I had moved away from stamping.  Recently I've been seeing a lot of really beautiful cards and projects using the Copics which renewed my curiousity.  I heard about an online Copic class and decided to sign up.  I ordered the basic kit thinking that would suffice (haha).  I "won" an Ebay bid for about 100 more markers and now I have a pretty rainbow of the markers.  Anyway, our first assignment was to color one of the images that were in our kit and post it in the class gallery.  I don't have any skin tone markers (I see a shopping trip in my future) so I decided to color the cute dog.  As you can see, I have a lot to learn.  I told the instructors that I failed coloring in Kindergarten so they should not have high expectations for me.  (as for cutting, let's just say I am so thankful for my Cricuts!)

The class is very interesting and there is a lot more to this process than just coloring.  I saved this little guy and will color him again at the end of the class to see if I've made any improvements.  I can't digress, so I am hopeful!


  1. Hi Donna... I like your little puppy and did one for the class too. I can't wait to learn more and see what are little puppies look like at the end of class!

  2. Hi! your puppy looks great but I'm sure we will learn a lot in the class and the puppy will look sooo different at the end!
