Trying out Copics

Our mid-month reveal is up at AWDML!  The featured manufacture is Copics...which I was am not at ALL comfortable with.  lol.  I kept trying to figure out ways I'd actually use them, because let's be honest, I'm not the type to sit down and color in lots of images with them...

So for this card I used them to color match my ribbon and stick pins to the patterned paper I was using (both the ribbon and the pins were originally white.)  I'm happy with the results!



And if you follow me on Tumblr or facebook you know that I've been doing some serious drooling over quilts lately and have plans (and fabric!) to start on some too.  Well...apparently all the quilt blog visiting is effecting my brain..and my scrapping!  lol.  This was a great way to use up some scraps though!


Here again I used the Copics to color match the lace and doily to the rest of the LO and I also used them to color the pearls green.

OMG.. you are so funny.. Copics can colour lots of things.. it is fabulous for matching chipboard to papers, colouring dew drops, floral accents.... i buy almost everything in white or cream now and just colour it to match rather than buy all colours of everything i like.. fabulous job on these projects using copics.. you go girl....hugs Bev
