Merry Christmas to Me


   

 

I bought myself a Christmas present this year. It is something I have been wanting for a long time….Copic Markers!!!  (Copic markers are alcohol based, they can be blended and they are refillable.) The markers were on sale at Dick Blick and if you spent $150 you received another 15% off your total order and free shipping. So I made like I was the last of the big spenders and plunked down $152 on myself. Needless to say I won’t be getting anything under the tree but I don’t mind!

I used to color all of my stamped images with colored pencils and then blend them with Gamsol. But I was never really thrilled with the results. These markers blend so nicely and the cards I have made with them appear more professionally finished.

BTW: The first two cards are made with Recollections stamps and the third is a House Mouse stamp. The Copic set I bought was 36A from the Ciao collection. (Ciao is cheaper than Sketch markers.) I purchased an additional 12 colors and a blender pen at the time of order and because of the blendable properties of the pen these 38 colors should be all that I need for a long while!

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
