Yippee, the Copics are here!

Geez, why didn't anyone tell me just how fantastic these Copics are! I love blending the colors for the shading effect. Copics are like the Cadillac of markers! Look at all the pretty colors!! Of course, the boys had to color in my new Ians and Vivi too. Guess which ones we each colored? Remember my kids are 4 and 9 so be nice!



Andrew had me stamp a few Ians and colored them all in blue. So we had a little "Blue Man Group."



I wasn't sure if I'd like the Copics but since I LOVE them I took a peek in the DCRU store and, lucky day, there were a few left that I had my eye on.

And here's my first Copic Vivi ever!! I hope you like her. I added flock to the rim of her cap but it's hard to see here.



I'm doing a spotlight on Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses Paper next week at the DCRU DT blog so stop back and see what I do with this Vivi and some gorgeous paper. But, before you go, be honest...how's my first Copic coloring job? I see that I need to learn to use my blender pen properly but don't you think the boys and I color well enough to have more Copics? Good, leave some comments so I can convince hubs. Just kidding!!! He's supportive of all my crafty endeavors and besides markers and Spellbinders tuck away nicely. You'd never guess how many I REALLY have. Now, where to hide, I mean put, the Score-Pal. Have a great Wednesday!

Cara,

Your Vivi is so cute! Doesn't look like you are new to Copics at all!

Looks like you have a couple of artists in the making! Fun to be able to share our love with our little ones!

So Copics put the spell on you I see. ;) Once you try them you are hooked! You did a FABULOUS job and it doesn't look like it was your first time. Just think the more you play the better you get! :)

Happy Copic-ing :D
