Flowers and Copics!

Well, I am officially a Copic convert. I have resisted these wonderful alcohol markers because of the expense, but I really did want some.  My darling son gave me some for Christmas!! Yes, I've already added to my collection too! lol

I love this new stamp set from the new Occasions Mini catalog!! The Watercolor Wonder designer series paper is so soft and pretty too.

I've been watching video tutorials, reading blogs and bought the book, Copic Coloring Guide by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker. I've used three different papers to see which allows me to blend the best and I prefer Xpress It Blending Card. The first card below had some issues with bleeding colors, so I used some blue chalk to try to disguise it. That was my very first image colored with my new markers. The second card, was done with the Xpress It Blending Card.
