Like a Woman possessed!!

I am LOVING these Copic Markers . . . I can not stop colouring in!
I am also spending lots of time searching the internet for ‘digital stamps’ . . . I didn’t even know that these existed until yesterday :)
Here are some great sites I found if you are interested . . .
Meljen's Designs
Whimsy Stamps
Cuddly Buddly Crafts
Fred, She Said Designs
Anyway, after lots of searching, and discovering some lovely freebies on these sites, I spent the afternoon colouring in!
Here is what I did . . .

Once I had finished all the colouring in, I turned them all into cards :)

I am still waiting for the stickles on the Flower Doodle Cards to dry, so I can’t scan them just yet!  I’ll post them for you tomorrow.
I hope you are enjoying seeing the Copic Created Cards, as much as I am enjoying doing them.
Get yourself down to Scrap2Relax, or check out the website, and get yourself some Copics to play with.
Until Next Time,

I LOVE Copic Markers!

So, I was going to post some of the scrapbook pages I have done in the last week or so, but I have something sooooo much more exciting to share with you :)
I have just started playing with the Copic Markers . . . and lets me just say . . . I LOVE them!!
I started out with 6 markers on Saturday . . . went back to Scrap2Relax yesterday and bought 14 more.
I coloured most of last night, read LOTS of stuff on the internet, and I HAVE to drop back into Scrap2Relax this afternoon for some MORE!!
They are so easy to use, they colour beautifully, and even I (who has no artistic/drawing skill) can blend the colours and get some shading look in my pictures. (Now I need more stamps that I can colour!).
Here are my first attempts . . .

I have enlarged some of my favourites for you . . .
Please note: In real life the blending is MUCH smoother, than in the scanned images.
All Stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I will be doing a Copic Instructors Certification at the end of August, which I am really looking forward to.
I hope you will join me for some classes in September/October. We’ll let you know the dates when the time gets closer :)
OK, I was going to scrapbook today . . . but I can hear the pens calling me to do some more colouring in!!
Happy Colouring!!
