So, I finally started purchasing Copic markers. Yes, yes...I'm getting with the times :O) I have no idea how to use them, other than a couple of tutorials I watched - speaking of which. If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator you have to watch Lauren Meader's tutorial! She had me cracking up when I watched her video and she started talking about customers using her SU! markers when she was a demonstrator :O)
Anyway...I know there are cheaper places to buy them (not much though), BUT, when you purchase over $55 at Papertrey Ink, shipping is free, AND they group the markers into shades that complement their signature colors! So, whether you use their colors or not, it's cool knowing the set of three you purchase will work well together. They charge $16 a set or $6 each.
I used the Sweet Blush set for my Morning Glories and the New Leaf set for the leaves. I don't believe the patterned paper is Sweet Blush, but I like how it looks anyway :O) Oh, and after I watched the tutorials, I found that it is imperative to have a colorless blender...which I don't! So, please be gentle :]
I also used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC34) for the layout. It's definitely not to scale, but I like it :O)
That's all I have for you today! I hope to work on some more projects over the next few days. Hope you had a fun, craft-filled weekend!
