Sweet Pea with Copics

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great week! We are doing a bit better this week so that's a relief. I'm getting ready to leave for CHA and I'm getting pretty excited! If you'll be at CHA, please keep an eye out for me! I love to take pictures with all my crafty pals!

Here's the card I blogged over at the Paper Maniac blog yesterday:
Here's my card for this week. Now, I thought about coloring a really complex image for you guys BUT then I thought, hey, let's show the friends how simple and FUN Copics can be! Literally, this image took me maybe 5 minutes to color and I only used 11 Copics. You can definitely start with just a few markers and make a huge difference in your coloring! However, I should warn you that they are VERY addicting! (I also want to mention, I used this week's Card Patterns sketch for this card.)

I should also point out, if you want to start your Copic collection, Paper Maniac has a Copic coloring kit of the month each month with fabulous tutorials! Also, check out the clearance section RIGHT NOW! Items that are already marked off (up to 70%) are on sale for an additional 15% off.
