Copic Lily Ladybug


So, my friend Jeannie came over today. She was bringing me some stamps we had ordered together. Got some Sugar in the house today! She also brought over her Copics and let me try them for the first time. I grabbed an old image, that wasn't the best impression when I stamped it-not enough ink coverage, but figuring I just wanted to try them out I wasn't worried about the end result, this stamped image would be fine. Dudes, I had so much fun coloring it in. It's not perfect by any means, the mushrooms need more practice. But I thought the dress came out wonderful, and my skin tones weren't too shabby. Her copic collection were ones that matched PTI's colors, so I just played with random colors that she had, like I said, not paying attention to any final product. After she left, I was happy with how nice and bright the colors were, decided I had to see what I could do with her. I went upstairs, looking at my papers, and found that TAC Genevieve matched my oddball colors perfectly! How cool was that? Than I had to outline the thing with black marker because of the quality of my image. So, my first copic card! LOL! I feel so proud!

Supplies: PTI Raspberry Fizz, TAC Genevieve FWIC, TAC Swirlies-top right, Rachel Anne Miller stamp, dew drops, copics, prima flowers, stickles, Nesties
