My First Copic Colored Card!

It's been a week since I've posted a card but I wanted to share my very first card I've done using Copic Markers! I took a class at Scrapper's Edge a couple of weeks ago and my collection of markers is quite small (eleven to be exact, counting the blending pen), that's how new I am!! I don't quite have the hang of it yet. But I'm practicing and learning by watching a lot of tutorials online.

But I just love this little summer image of Tilda (Magnolia), I've used My Minds Eye DP (Pretty Please) and Bazzill cardstock, Martha Stewart border punch (picket fence, which I laced with yellow ribbon) and I rounded each corner with my every trustworthy corner punch from EK Success. I paper pieced one of the yellow flowers and added a button. I also blended Antique Linen Distress ink around the white of the cardstock so it wouldn't be so stark white.
My second piece of MME DP I cut out with the Spellbinders,
Nestabilities Label One with my Cuttlebug

Copic Pens:B12,E00,E33,E37,YG11,YG67,R20,R29,R32,W1.
Prismacolor pencil, Deco Yellow

Here is the inside of the card and I used one of the diecuts from the MME (Pretty Please) and the stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. I used Archival (coffee) ink.

So all of you Copic experts don't be too hard on me!! This is my first completed image I've put together for a card! I've been practicing a bit and not to make excuses (as I make an excuse... lol) I only have 11 markers, for crying out loud!!

Check back and I hope to have this weeks challenges from Christian Paper Crafts posted, I'm running just a few days behind!! oops!!

Well, thanks for looking!! Have a wonderful weekend!
